This week was to familiarise ourselves with E-Prime, the software we will be using to conduct our big research project. It started with running an experiment that someone else had designed, but which we will be using the data from in our next assignment. After that we got walked through how to set up a simple experiment ourselves to prepare us for residential school when we will be running them.
This was a helpful introduction as I had signed up to participate in a PhD student’s research which was using the same software. I’m a proper psychology student now, doing experiments for other psychology students and soon to be doing them on other psychology students.
