An introduction to multiple regression and its applications in psychological research. The course covers the data analysis process from data collection to interpretation: how to deal with missing data, the testing of assumptions, addressing problem of multicolinearity, significance testing, and deciding on the most appropriate model. Several illustrative data sets will be explored in detail. The course contains a brief introduction to factor analysis. The goal is to provide the students with the skills and understanding to conduct and interpret data analysis in non-experimental areas of psychology.
Restricted to students enrolled in the Specialist/Specialist Co-op and Major programs in Psychology, and Mental Health Studies, and the Specialist/Specialist Co-op in Neuroscience Cognitive stream. Students in the Minor program in Psychology will be admitted if space permits.
