 Read this article for Wednesday.
We'll have a brief quiz over its content on Wednesday. Note this is a
DIFFERENT article from the one I initially posted last week. This is an
article on personality.

 Read this article for Wednesday. We'll
have a brief quiz over it following the usual format. Sorry, no clues this
time! However, be sure to pay close attention to the statistics used in all
three studies. After today's lecture, you should be able to identify and make
sense of all of the stats in the paper.

 Read pages 514516
(Introduction) and 520521 (Experiment 2) of this paper. What is the task
(mixing colors and words) they used in their research? What is the name of
their hypothesis? Who participated in the study, and where they randomly
selected? What type of analyses were used in Study 2? What effect sizes were
reported, and were they large using CCs?
 Read this
replication report of the same study. Why was a power analysis conducted?
Were the results successfully replicated (see "Confirmatory analysis")? Were
effect sizes reported, and were they large using CCs?
 We'll have a brief quiz over both readings in class
on Wednesday, March 29th.

 Here is an ANOVA homework assignment for this coming weekend. You'll need
to turn in your copied notes and worked problem in the video on Monday for points.
This video is from a previous semester, so ignore comments about "last week's
lab" or other timerelevant statements.
 Here is the ANOVA problem shown in the video.
 Here is the ANOVA handout,
Ftable, and qtable
from class on Wednesday.

 Read the Introduction and Study #1
(and examine Figure 1) of this paper for Wednesday. We'll take a brief
quiz over paper in lecture. Be sure to focus on the results of Study #1. What
were the independent and dependent variables? What type of statistical test
did the researchers use? What was their p_crit value? p_obs values? Did they
report any effect sizes or confidence intervals, as recommended by the APA?
Did they randomly select people from a larger population?

We'll have a quizam in the lab on Wednesday, Feb 8th. Memorize the formulas for
the mean, SS, variance, std dev, and zscore. On subsequent quizams I'll give
you a formula sheet. For now, it is important to remember these fundamental
formulas. I'll ask you to compute descriptive statistics (including a frequency
table and histogram) and one zscore on the quizam.
Videos reviewing basic, descriptive statistics.
Ignore the front material in these videos (for example, ignore my
requests for you to copy and turn in material on the slides) as they are from a
previous semester.

Two data files for this week's lab (Feb. 1st, 2017)

 Welcome to Quantitative Methods in Psychology!
 Here's what you need for this class:
 A scientific calculator.
You don't need a fancy TI83 or similar calculator, although one of these
will be fine, but a simple calculator will do. Make sure that if you buy a
new, simple calculator for this course it is labeled as a "scientific
calculator." A scientific calculator will possess a variety of statistical
functions, such as the mean and standard deviation. You can purchase a
simple scientific calculator at WalMart, Walgreens, etc. for approximately 10
U.S. dollars.
