APA Handbook of Research Methods in Psychology, Vol. 1: Foundations, Planning, Measures, and Psychometrics

Contains descriptions of many techniques that psychologists and others have developed to help them pursue a shared understanding of why humans think, feel, and behave the way they do. Addresses (a) what data or measurement techniques will best capture the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that interest you; (b) what research design best fits the question that you want to answer; and (c) what strategies for data analysis best match the characteristics of your design and measurements. This volume focuses on the broadest questions related to research designs. These involve both (a) which research designs are most appropriate for which question and (b) how to think about the ethicality and feasibility of the designs that address your question and the measures available to you. It also describes the types of data that psychologists most often collect and how to determine whether the measurement techniques that you might choose are the best ones for your purpose.
