PSYC 300: Finding a non-experimental study: tips

Finding a non-experimental study

Log into our PsycINFO database.

Set up this search, and limit it to full-text only:

"reaction time" AND "quasi-experimental"

You will get these results:

http://ezproxy.umuc.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=psyh&bquery=(%26quot%3breaction+time%26quot%3b)+AND+(%26quot%3bquasi-experimental%26quot%3b)&cli0=FT&clv0=Y&login.asp&type=1&site=ehost-live&scope=site

Hopefully, one of those articles will work fairly well for the assignment.

You can try other searches, too (examples are below). Just don't try to find a perfect article. Find a good-enough article and make it work for the purposes of the assignment.

cognition AND gender AND "quasi-experimental"
