This is the place to start. You don’t need to know anything about statistics. I’ll explain everything in detail and put it all in context.
This is an on-going project, so please comment on any or all of the videos. I’ll make changes based on your input. And if those changes need to be changed, we’ll change it some more. Just like science.
Let’s get started: Square One
If Square 1 is thinking up a theory, Square 2 is seeing what others have to say on the matter.
Here is Square Two.
Theories are not directly testable. So using your theory and literature review, you select variables that can be tested.
This is the task of Square 3.
After you build your theory, conduct a lit review, and select your varialbes, it is time to generate operational definitions.
This is Square 4
Which design is best for you? Here are some of your options.
You’re in Square 5.
You have determined the general parameters of the study, now it is time to figure out who you are going to study.
You’re in Square 6
Now that you know who to study, you must decide how to choose them.
You’re now in Square 7
After choosing your subjects, it’s time to get everything ready for them. You have to write your tests, create your slides, build your maze and setup your equipment.
When you’re getting everything ready, you’re in Square 8
When everything is set, you need to get permission from your Institutional Review Board (IRB) to conduct your study. To do so, you write a proposal.
This is the last step before running your study. This is Square 9.
The first 9 squares were getting you ready for this. In Square 10, you get informed consent from your participants and collect the data.
This is Square 10
