The site is designed primarily for use by faculty. However, the materials and exercises on the site are aimed toward fulfillment of the following learning goals.
• Students will gain experience in how language may be used in media stories to imply causal links when these have not been established in the actual research.
• Students will gain practice in writing brief, accurate descriptions of causal vs. correlational research findings (including rewording inaccurately reported results). This exercise will heighten students’ ability to recognize correctly vs. incorrectly reported results.
