Psychology: From Inquiry to Understanding
The goal of this text is to empower students to apply scientific thinking to the psychology of their everyday lives. By applying scientific thinking—thinking that helps protect us against our tendencies to make mistakes—we can better evaluate claims about both laboratory research and daily life.


Students will emerge with the critical-thinking skills and open-minded scepticism they need to distinguish psychological misinformation from psychological information. The product is designed to encourage students to keep an open mind to new claims, but to insist on and evaluate evidence informing these claims.

How to Write Psychology Research Reports and Assignments provides all the information required to prepare and write psychology research reports and assessments at the undergraduate level.

The text is intended to address the need for a set of guidelines for writing undergraduate-level psychology research reports and assessments. It’s aimed at first- and second-year students, although it may be useful to address weaknesses in preparation, writing, or even submitting assignments among more senior students. A student who grasps these concepts will have a sound basis for presenting and communicating research in a professional manner, and writing stylistically appropriate assessments.
