What is the roles of research in educational psychology?
Research in educational psychology focuses on the processes by which information skills, values, and attitudes are communicated between teachers and students in teh classroom and on applications of the principles of psychology to instructional practices. Such research shapes educational policies professional development programs and teaching materials.
What Research methods are used in educational psychology?
--experimental research which involves particular eduacational programs or treatments
--random assignment of experimental subjeccts into groups which ensures groups are equivalent and findings are valid
--lab experiments which are highly sturctured and short term
--randomized field experiments are less structured and take place ver a long period of time under realistic conditions in which not all variables can be controlled
--single case experiment involves observation of one student or group of students over a specified period before and after treatment
--descriptive research which uses surveys, interviews, and observations to describe behavior in social settings.
How can I become an intentional teacher?
Once one has obtained a teaching certification you can further your skills by seeking mentors, pursuing professional development, and talking to colleagues and friends about your experiences.

Randomized field experiment
Experiment conducted under realistic conditions in which individuals are assigned by chance to receive different practical treatments or programs.
Experimental group
Group that receives treatment during an experiment
Control group
Group that receives no special treatment during an experiment
External validity
Degree to which results of an experiment can be applied to real-life situations
Single-case experiment
Experiment that studies a treatment's effect on one person or one group by contrasting behavior before, during, and after application of the treatment
Correlational study
Research into the relationships between variables as they naturally occur
Positive correlation
Relationship in which high levels of one variable correspond to high levels of another
Negative correlation
Relationship in which high levels of one variable correspond to low levels of another
Uncorrelated variables
Variables for which there is no relationship between levels of one compared to another.
Descriptive research
Research study aimed at identifying and gathering detailed information about a topic of interest.
Action research
