Joseph Sparks

1st August 2016

Just because the summer holiday has arrived, it doesn’t mean that the tutor2u psychology team have stopped preparing for next term. Here’s an update on what happened last week:


Last week, we launched a range of new research methods webinars to help you prepare for those tricky Year 2 topics, including:

  • Revisiting the sign test
  • How to teach probability and significance
  • Making students REALLY understand the difference between Type I & Type II errors
  • Creative ways to teach Levels of Data
  • How to choose the right statistical test and using the ‘decision tree’
  • How to teach non-parametric tests of difference: Wilcoxon & Mann-Whitney
  • How to teach parametric tests of difference: Related t-test & Unrelated t-test
  • How to teach tests of correlation: Spearman’s Rho & Pearson’s r
  • How to teach the Chi-Squared test

Why not sign up to one, or more today and get ready to Master Research Methods. A Level Psychology Free Teacher CPD Webinars


In addition, last week we advertised three new vacancies to further develop our provision for psychology students and teachers.
