MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY--DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY Participation in Psychological Research : Information for Students As part of your psychology course, you are encouraged to participate in research projects conducted or supervised by the faculty of the department. The purpose of such participation is to give you some direct experience with real experiments and to give you a better idea of how the work of psychology is actually carried out. Participation is a course requirement for all sections of PSY 101. Steps in Research Participation : Registering as a Participating Student . The purpose of this handout is to go over some of the things you will need to know before participating in psychological research. The first step is registering.
