This handbook is designed to function as a "hands-on" component of social psychology courses and as a practical handbook for research methods. Drawing on an extensive base of research from his own students, McKenna discusses how social experimentation can be conducted by undergraduates. Rather than instructing students to repeat "canned" exercises, the handbook serves as a guide to a series of projects, providing the knowledge and encouragement for students to become involved in the design of their own research. Students should produce creative, original, legitimate studies which not only increase their knowledge of research methods and social psychology, but also encourage critical thinking and logical analysis of current social and ethical issues. It is designed for undergraduate courses in social psychology; advanced and beginner research methods courses in social science disciplines such as social psychology, psychology, and sociology.
