This was the start page for Mike Clark's stat courses that he taught for the department of psychology. He is no longer at UNT but may be found here. The pages will be left in case any former students or folks who stumble in randomly from the web might find something useful. The last update of any kind was Spring of 2009. Best of luck in your research efforts.

Select a course page from the drop down menu.  You will find specific news for the course there as well as the syllabus.

Bad psych/Good psych (send me any you come across!):

Not sure what's worse, the research question or pathetic news reporting of the results. Happy people watch less tv.
