PSY102 Research Skills Guide: Home


Welcome to the PSY102 Research Skills Guide.

This guide is designed to make your research process easier for Assessment 3 which requires you to write a research report on a correlational study.

The guide is intended to help you with this report by focusing on:

  • undertaking a literature review
  • searching Primo Search and library databases
  • using and evaluating information
  • understanding statistics and correlation

If you would like a refresher about other library skills, such as sources of information, finding keywords and more, head over to the PSY101 Research Skills Guide

Most important of all, use your librarians! If you need help with anything library or research related, get in touch with the library.
