ABSTRACT

If you are devising and running your own practical work in psychology, good luck! It is highly satisfying to complete a project that was your own initial idea and that you have followed through to the presentation stage; it usually feels a whole lot more fulfilling than simply writing up a practical set by your tutor. However, beware! You really don’t want to find yourself running a project with hopeless snags, completely inappropriate design or gathering useless data. So read this chapter, other relevant sections and always consult with your tutors before getting too far.
