Learners discover how apply to research methods to their study of Positive Psychology. In this course, we study with Dr. Angela Duckworth and Dr. Claire Robertson-Kraft. Through an exploration their work "True Grit" and interviews with researchers and practitioners, you develop a research hypothesis and learn how to understand the difference between internal and external validity. You also begin to understand and apply the strengths and weaknesses associated with different types of measurements and evaluation designs. You then interpret the results in an empirical study. Suggested prerequisites: Positive Psychology: Martin E. P. Seligman’s Visionary Science and Positive Psychology: Applications and Interventions....

Though i have nightmares of research design from my undergraduate career, this puts a neat spin on it and reminds the sheer importance of it. Thanks for the reminder of what is important UPENN!

It was a wonderful class! While I was expecting something different than learning about research and how to read research papers, that is my fault for putting my expectations on the class.

Overview of research methods was ease, but clear. Grit research was interesting. But it was a bit messed up because themes of psychology and research methods were mixed.

There were quite a few mistakes (even in titles) in the written content, such as spelling, grammar, etc. which makes learning less enjoyable.

I have learnt a lot everyday attending the courses. However, there are really parts which I find them a bit difficult to understand.

Learned a lot of valuable things on research studies which will help me better analyze. And the grit topic was very interesting.

I love the teaching and learning of the course a great deal. Waiting on the peers to grade and that process was not as fun.

I think the material in this course is hard and not very easy to grasp, but the videos and exercises made it doable.

It's a little more nuts and bolts of research that doesn't really interest me as much as some of the other courses.

Great course! Altough, I think a different level of interaction from both facilitators would be more interesting

A bit on the dry side but learnt a lot of technical skills, especially how to approach a research paper.
