PSYC 201 - Statistics for Psychology

Prerequisite: PSYC 100 and MATH 100 or higher (except First and Second Year Seminars and MATH 408); or consent of instructor
Statistics for Psychology is primarily a course that will introduce students to the application of statistics to the research process in psychology. Statistics are used to describe and to critically evaluate information. The two branches of statistics, descriptive and inferential statistics, will be covered in this course. Specific procedures that may be covered include measures of central tendency and variability, visual description of data, z-scores, correlation and linear regression, basic probability, parametric tests such as z-tests, t-tests, analysis of variance (ANOVAs), and non-parametric tests such as the chi-square test.
