Metodologia della ricerca con elementi di statistica

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The student must show that he has

- Knowledge and understanding of the fundamental concepts of hypothesis verification and statistical tests in the theoretical framework of the general linear model. Moreover, he/she must understand the methods underlying validation and standardization of the psychological measures

- Applied knowledge and understanding: acquired the ability to recognize which statistical approach to use in different practical contexts

- Making judgements: Acquired the ability to use knowledge and concepts for describing the results of the main statistics used in the psychological field

- Communication skills: acquired specific lexicon for the description of psychometric results

- Learning Skills: At the completion of the course students will have gained a good degree of autonomy in reading the materials related to the validation of psychometric tests and in the critical understanding of the adequacy of the statistical analyzes reported in the psychological research.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

There are 4 practical lessons (using the PC) to illustrate

1) How to build a database for psychological research?

2) How to perform the statistical analyses described in the front lessons

3) How the results of these analyses should be read and reported

Practical lessons are essential for passing exams

In addition, a seminar is planned for the practical demonstration of the psychophysiological testing and correction of psychological instruments


Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Theorethical and practical lectures

Innovative teaching methods

Problem-based learning examples and practice

Attendance

Not mandatory

Course books

1) Book: Gallucci, Leone e Berlingeri “Modelli statistici per le scienze sociali” (II edizione)

Assessment

The exam consists of two tests,

1) Written multiple structured answer test to assess the knowledge and arguments that will be dealt with in the different parts of the course. The test consists of 30 questions, each question includes 4 alternatives. Each question has a value of 1 point. There is no penalty in case of an incorrect response.

2) Written commentary of a series of statistical analyses. In this case the student is provided with the results of a series of statistical analyses carried out for psychological research. It requires the student to produce, for each reported result, a written comment using a specific language.

In order to pass the examination it is necessary to take at least 18 in both tests, the final vote will be given by the average of the marks obtained in the two trials.

Competence level will be scaled as follows:

· less than 18: insufficient

·  18-20: sufficient

·  21-23: completely sufficient

· 24-26: good level

·  27-30: optimal level

· 30 e lode: excellent level

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
