Research methods lectures extend studies in experimental design and analysis to the use of analysis of variance, planned and post hoc comparisons, analysis of interactions, and repeated measures designs. Students are also introduced to regression and trend analysis, two factor non-orthogonal designs, three factor, multivariate and repeated measures analysis of variance, and analysis of covariance.

The unit aims to assist students develop the knowledge and skills required to select the appropriate statistics for the analysis of common experimental designs in psychology, and to conduct and critically interpret the results of such analyses.
