Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


Contents

Group work on a practical research project (e.g. document analysis, eye tracking, programming in MATLAB) under the supervision of one of the teaching staff.
  • Essential mathematical and modeling techniques
  • experimental design
  • participant selection and recruitment
  • development and preparation of experimental materials
  • research software (e.g. E-Prime, Experiment Builder)
  • specialized experimental equipment (e.g. response time equipment, eye-tracker, EEG)
  • interpretation of experimental results
How to measure reaction time data, how to identify outliers, how to prepare data for analyses, statistical analyses for between und within- participants designs

Competencies / intended learning achievements

On successfully completing the module students will be able to,
  • recognize and define basic and some more advanced methods in research related to Cognition and Knowledge
  • transfer the acquired knowledge to related experimental designs
  • prepare and conduct an experiment in the laboratory; apply practical research skills
  • summarize and present the results obtained with these specific research methods
