    Psychology -> Research methods in Psychology Research methods in Psychology This resource covers research methods in Psychology. It looks at a variety of methods and concepts including: inferential statistics, participant selection and allocation, the Placebo and experimenter effects, single-blind and double-blind procedures and inferring from data as well as ethical considerations in the conduct of psychological research. Let's begin with an overview of inferential statistics. Definition of inferential statistics While descriptive statistics are used by a researcher to organise, summarise and describe data, inferential statistics are used by a researcher to interpret the data and make inferences from observations of a sample in an experiment to generalise to a wider population.
