PSYCH 625 Week 1 DQs


Product Description

DQ 1: As we begin our venture into statistics, let's pause to examine the role of research in psychology. Psychology is the science of behavior. We think of psychology as counseling, introspection, learning, cognition, etc. How can these processes be the subject of research? How do we reconcile the discipline and rigor of good research with the ambiguity of human emotions and motivations?  What is the role of research in psychology?


DQ 2: Many people feel nervous around math, but what we really need to fear is the selective interpretation of data! For most of us, 1 + 1 = 2, but in the hands of some, 1 + 1 can be "spun" to support specific agenda. Think about commercials or news clips that you may have seen recently. In what subtle ways might data have been used to influence the listener/viewer? For example, when we hear, "Four out of five dentists recommend Glittering Grin toothpaste!" is it correct to assume that 100 dentists were polled and 80 voted for Glittering Grin?
