This OPEN TEXTBOOK is for Politically-Oriented Web-Enhanced Research Methods for Undergraduates Topics and Tools: Resources for introductory research methods courses in political science and related disciplines The POWERMUTT Project is a cross between an introductory political science research methods textbook and an online resource for teaching and learning such methods. It includes: Topics. Each topic is equivalent to a short chapter in a traditional textbook. Tools. These are brief step-by-step tutorials for carrying out specific techniques. At present, the Tools described are some of those found in SPSS, a leading software package for statistical analysis. Datasets and codebooks. Data, and codebooks describing them, on public opinion, the American states, the U.S. Congress, and the countries of the world. Links to other sites providing additional information about research methods. Compared to traditional textbooks, POWERMUTT offers several important advantages, including: Flexibility. Your instructor may have decided to adopt the entire POWERMUTT site as the main course "textbook," or to use just a small portion of the site's resources as supplementary material. Interactivity. Want to see exactly how a table or graph was generated? With POWERMUTT PUPs (Pop Up Protocols), the answer is just a click away. Just as close is additional information on other resources within POWERMUTT or elsewhere on the Web. Affordability. In fact, it's free! However, your instructor may ask you to purchase hard copy of all or part of POWERMUTT for a nominal cost at your campus copy center. While most of the materials in the project are for reference, some, especially the Topics, need to be studied carefully. A highlighter will really mess up your monitor. You can save money by directly downloading the Topics and printing them at home.
Introduction to research methods in political science. I have used it in my ciritcal thinking class taught in sociology. Introduces topics in research methods and includes data sets, tools and exercises for teaching a research methods course. Data sets are in SPSS format. Could be used for a complete course or for introducing a particular topic. I use it for teaching elaboraton in my critical thinking class.
