We describe how students can be encouraged to actively review course contents on inferential statistics by creating application-oriented exercises and sample solutions on the basis of concrete and realistic research articles and their data. For evaluation purposes, we use students' reactions to the activity and investigate its effects on the final…

Goode, Christopher T.; Lamoreaux, Marika; Atchison, Kristin J.; Jeffress, Elizabeth C.; Lynch, Heather L.; Sheehan, Elizabeth – Teaching of Psychology, 2018
Hybrid or blended learning (BL) has been shown to be equivalent to or better than face-to-face (FTF) instruction in a broad variety of contexts. We randomly assigned students to either 50/50 BL or 100% FTF versions of a research methods and statistics in psychology course. Students who took the BL version of the course scored significantly lower…

Friedrich, James; Childress, Julia; Cheng, David – Teaching of Psychology, 2018
This study describes a close replication of Friedrich, Buday, and Kerr's late 1990s survey of statistics instruction in undergraduate psychology programs. Disciplinary reform efforts at that time such as the report of the APA Task Force on Statistical Inference, together with recent progress in the "new statistics" movement, raise…

Veilleux, Jennifer C.; Chapman, Kate M. – Teaching of Psychology, 2017
Research methods and statistics are core courses in the undergraduate psychology major. To assess learning outcomes, it would be useful to have a measure that assesses research methods and statistical literacy beyond course grades. In two studies, we developed and provided initial validation results for a research methods and statistical knowledge…

Veilleux, Jennifer C.; Chapman, Kate M. – Teaching of Psychology, 2017
The current set of three studies further evaluates the validity and application of the Psychological Research Inventory of Concepts (PRIC). In Study 1, we administered the PRIC to a sample of introductory psychology students and online (Mechanical Turk) participants along with measures assessing theoretically related concepts. We found evidence of…

Carman, Carol A.; Bartsch, Robert A. – Teaching of Psychology, 2017
One method to increase flexibility in class offerings is through the use of compressed courses, classes that have the same number of contact hours but over a shorter time period (e.g., 8 weeks vs. 15 weeks). Before offering these courses, it is important to determine whether they lead to equivalent or better student outcomes. This study examined…

Karazsia, Bryan T.; Wong, Kendal – Teaching of Psychology, 2016
Quantitative and statistical literacy are core domains in the undergraduate psychology curriculum. An important component of such literacy includes interpretation of visual aids, such as tables containing results from statistical analyses. This article presents results of a quasi-experimental study with longitudinal follow-up that tested the…
