Understanding Quantitative and Qualitative Research in Psychology is the most hands-on, accessible and approachable guide to the entire research process, which fully explores both quantitative and qualitative methods to give students the knowledge and confidence they need. Students are presented with a practically-focused guide to carrying out psychological research and are taken from formulating a research question through to collecting data, analysing datasets statistically with SPSS or qualitatively with a range of approaches, and finally presenting and thinking critically about research findings. They are shown the importance of research ethics, and coverage of the replication crisis and the open science movement is considered throughout. The online resources present a wealth of opportunities for students to practice what they have learned, and the title is supported by an excellent range of video support materials for both the qualitative and quantitative sections, including SPSS screencasts for all relevant chapters, and a range of videos on interview skills.
