Course Number: 
BIA 654

This course covers fundamental topics in experimentation including hypothesis development, operational definitions, reliability and validity, measurement and variables, as well as design methods, such as sampling, randomization, and counterbalancing. The course also introduces the analysis associated with various experiments because designing good experiments involves thinking about how to analyze the obtained data. Experiments test cause-effect relationships; this course has very broad applications across all the natural and social sciences. At the end of the course, students present a project, which consists of designing an experiment, collecting data, and trying to answer a research question.
