Course Description The major purpose of this course is to provide you with a solid foundation in elementary statistics, by introducing you to the various types of statistics used in psychology and other social sciences. In this course, you will learn the “what, when, and how” of statistics. That is, you will learn what statistics are available, when to use specific statistics, and how to interpret results.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
