Abstract

There can often be a gap between theory and its implications for practice when gathering data on human behavior. This gap can be particularly significant outside psychology departments. While most students at the undergraduate or early graduate levels in psychology are taught how to design experiments and analyze data in courses in psychology and statistics, there is, unfortunately, a dearth of materials providing practical guidance for running experiments. In this tutorial we provide a summary of a practical guide for running experiments with human participants (Ritter, Kim, Morgan, & Carlson, in press).
