This module covers different examples of social science experiments to show you how they're set up and what they can reveal.
Learn a few of the starting points behind the how and why we use models instead of experiments.
This module goes through a few examples of how natural experiments have been used to discover causal effects.
Focus groups can provide much-needed context and explanation for results, even with quantitative research. This module explains how focus groups can help your research and how to prepare for and conduct them.
We cover the main ways that researchers take limited data and make choices about their assumptions and expectations in order to create models of behavior for when experiments are extremely difficult or even impossible.
Get started with the basics of social science experiments in this module.
