An Introduction to Psychological Statistics
Conditions of Use:

Rating

We are constantly bombarded by information, and finding a way to filter that information in an objective way is crucial to surviving this onslaught with your sanity intact. This is what statistics, and logic we use in it, enables us to do. Through the lens of statistics, we learn to find the signal hidden in the noise when it is there and to know when an apparent trend or pattern is really just randomness. The study of statistics involves math and relies upon calculations of numbers. But it also relies heavily on how the numbers are chosen and how the statistics are interpreted.

This work was created as part of the University of Missouri’s Affordable and Open Access Educational Resources Initiative (https://www.umsystem.edu/ums/aa/oer). The contents of this work have been adapted from the following Open Access Resources: Online Statistics Education: A Multimedia Course of Study (http://onlinestatbook.com/). Project Leader: David M. Lane, Rice University. Changes to the original works were made by Dr. Garett C. Foster in the Department of Psychological Sciences to tailor the text to fit the needs of the introductory statistics course for psychology majors at the University of Missouri – St. Louis. Materials from the original sources have been combined, reorganized, and added to by the current author, and any conceptual, mathematical, or typographical errors are the responsibility of the current author.

Peer-supported self-management for people discharged from a mental health crisis team: a randomised controlled trial
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached

High resource expenditure on acute care is a challenge for mental health services aiming to focus on supporting recovery, and relapse after an acute crisis episode is common. Some evidence supports self-management interventions to prevent such relapses, but their effect on readmissions to acute care following a crisis is untested.

Research Methods in Psychology Ancillary Set
Conditions of Use:

The purpose of this project was to create a set of ancillary materials for the open textbook Research Methods in Psychology, a textbook intended to be used for psychology research methods courses. At the start of this grant, the textbook was available through the University of Minnesota’s Open Textbook Library (open.lib.umn.edu/psychologyresearchmethods/) and could be found in most open material repositories. Since this grant was proposed, however, a more recent version of the text has been released by Price, Jhangiani, Chiang, Leighton, and Cuttler (https://opentext.wsu.edu/carriecuttler/). The resources developed for this grant can be used for the new edition of the text, although they were written for the earlier version.

This module should be studied alongside the following other modules: Educational Psychology, General Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Learning Psychology, Guidance and Counseling and Educational Testing and Evaluation. The module is an introductory course for teacher education trainees. It is advisable before studying this module for the student to acquaint himself or herself with principles in general psychology because many concepts in the area of special needs education are based on psychological principles. Therefore, the student needs to understand the contribution of psychology to the theory and practice of education, to be conversant with self-assessment procedures, to have good knowledge in his or her subjects and to know about the personality of learners. It is also important to know about learners’ individual differences, moral, social, and cognitive development, theories of learning, guidance and counseling and educational testing and evaluation.

Welcome to this module titled Learning Psychology. In this module our focus will be on human learning. Human learning is not an entirely new topic to you since it was discussed at introductory level in the General Psychology unit and also in Developmental Psychology. Learning is undoubtedly one of the most important parts of psychology for the simple reason that most, if not all, human behaviour is either learned or is influenced by learning. A basic understanding of the behaviour of human beings therefore calls for basic knowledge of the basic psychological principles, concepts and approaches in classroom teaching and learning. The other factors that influence learning are inheritance, but this is beyond the scope of this module.

Finally the unit introduces you to the concepts, and different methods of study that are used in Educational Psychology.

Unit three presents to you issues of methods of study used in conducting studies in Educational Psychology. The advantages and disadvantages of each method are also discussed. Unit four introduces you to the benefits of Educational Psychology to the teacher, and to educational process/practice in a school setting and society in general.
