Quantitative Methods for Psychology

Quantitative Psychology

Quantitative Methods for Psychology include the development, evaluation, and application of novel quantitative methods in a number of broad areas including measurement, research design, statistical analysis, and graphical statistics. The American Psychological Association explains "What is quantitative psychology?" here.
