The Introductory Sociology Survey is a teaching device designed to teach introductory students basic skills in developing causal arguments and in using a computerized statistical package to analyze survey research data. Students are given codebooks for survey data and asked to write a brief paper predicting the relationship between at least two variables. After the relevant tables are printed by the computer, a second paper interprets the results in light of the prediction. The assignments can be modified to fit the requirements of various courses.
