Statistical analysis is a key part of psychological research design. The first stage of your psychological research project will give you the opportunity to conduct a review of univariate statistics, and serve as an introduction to the philosophy of research design and analysis. Everything you learn will be contextualised in terms of the unique challenges of psychological research, which influence the research approach and statistical technique. By understanding the issues that arise around the choice of appropriate statistical technique and data preparation, you will be able to interpret your findings in a critical way.
