Class Materials

All the handouts and powerpoint presentations during class will be posted below. Also, click on the "Research Tools" section in the left-hand sidebar which will take you to pages devoted to conducting research. See below about the Overview of the Research Process to see how the class material is broken down into a series of five successive operational phases from generating the idea to disseminating the idea. For all steps in the research process, there will be information about how to conduct research (for the practitioner) and how to evaluate research (for the research consumer).
