Lecture Notes
Research Design & Analysis
Emporia State University

There is a set of notes for each chapter that will be covered in this course. Not all of the chapters in your textbook will be covered. The notes only cover those topics that will be covered in class and for which you are responsible. In your textbook, each chapter is divided into sections. Each topic in the notes refers to the specific section to be studied in your textbook. Some topics may not be covered in the book but will be presented in these notes. The chapters below are arranged in the order in which they will be covered. Specific topics listed in the class schedule are linked to these notes.

Your first introduction to the material for this course will be via these notes. You are expected to read and study these notes before coming to class. The class notes specifically reference certain tables, figures, and equations in your textbook. You should also study the textbook paying particular attention to the tables, figures, and equations. In additions, you are expected to develop skill with the use of the statistical tables in the appendices of your book. It is important that you practice using these tables. At various places in the notes, you will be asked to use either SigmaPlot or SigmaStat. It is important that you do these exercises as these will be very useful to you as you analyze data for projects and your thesis.

These notes are provided to help direct your study from the textbook. They are not designed to explain all aspects of the material in great detail; that is what class time and the book is for. If you were to study only these notes, you would not do well in this course.
