Psychology


Project 1:

Mentor: Dr. K. Li-Barber
Topic: Creating an empathy scale for children to be measured on
Student Researcher: Olivia Baynes
My role: I was a blind researcher. I was given the recorded tapes of the interviews Olivia had with the participants and I transcribed the conversation. I also coded the conversation according to the code Dr. Li-Barber and Olivia created.
What I learned:

  • How creating a code from scratch can be difficult in terms of making sure it will be reliable.
  • I learned how to used SPSS in terms of reverse scoring and calculating variables to analyze correlations.

Project 2 (Future Project):

Mentor: Dr. S. Ross
Topic: Childhood obesity and interventions
