Abstract

The research methods unit of survey psychology classes introduces important concepts of scientific reasoning and fluency, making it an ideal course in which to deliver enhanced curricula. To increase interest and engagement, the author developed an expanded research methods and statistics module to give students the opportunity to explore fundamental statistical concepts using simulations. Pre- and post-survey data suggest this process helped them develop an understanding of the material and apply the concepts they investigated to other aspects of their life.
