Students from the Applied Psychological Science Graduate Program are now seeking projects that may need research/evaluation expertise and assistance (pro bono) for the fall semester.
The Applied Psychological Science Graduate Program trains students to design, analyse and interpret applied research (e.g., to conduct surveys, focus groups, interviews, to conduct research reviews critically, to evaluate social programs).
In the past, they have completed projects with various health agencies, the justice system and the law, advertising and the media, education, community organizations as well as government departments and subsidiaries.
This project aspires to give them experience in actually conducting research in an applied setting and/or evaluation research.
Your organization may have some evaluation work to be done or simply have a question you would like answered. This may involve designing and administering a survey or conducting focus groups or identifying and interviewing clients, designing a logic model, etc.
Students, working in pairs, will work over the semester, contributing about 10-15 hours a week, and report back to their
class each week, the class acting as a consulting group, supervised by their instructor. The duration of the project is about 12-14 weeks. This program has proven to be a highly successful learning
experience for students, and has contributed much needed research expertise and help to many deserving projects.
If you are interested in learning more/setting up an evaluation, and need help, please contact the program director, Dr. Cathryn Button: firstname.lastname@example.org
