Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

apply theory and logic relevant to psychological measurement and advanced quantitative statistics to diverse research data

construct a psychometric test and test its structure, psychometric properties, and construct validity

evaluate, select and perform appropriate and complete statistical analyses to assess real-world research questions

report and interpret findings of analyses in accordance with approved conventions in psychology
