This is the first methods handbook specifically designed to meet the needs of those studying development. Leading developmental methodologists present cutting-edge analytic tools and describe how and when to use them in accessible, nontechnical language. They also provide valuable guidance for strengthening developmental research with designs that anticipate potential sources of bias. Sections typically begin with an overview chapter on foundational issues. Subsequent chapters delve into specific techniques, following a consistent format that encompasses basic issues, conceptual principles and statistical assumptions, recent technical advances, developmental applications, and future directions. Research examples demonstrate the procedures in action and give readers a better understanding of how to match research questions to developmental methods. The companion website supplies data and program syntax files for many of the chapter examples.
Brett Laursen is Professor of Psychology and Director of Graduate Training at Florida Atlantic University. He is also a Docent Professor of Social Developmental Psychology at the University of Jyv\u00e4skyl\u00e4, Finland. In 2008, Dr. Laursen received an honorary doctorate from \u00d6rebro University, Sweden. He is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (Division 7, Developmental) and a Fellow and Charter Member of the Association for Psychological Science. In addition to his own research on parent–child and peer relationships, Dr. Laursen is a consultant and collaborator on several large longitudinal projects currently under way in North America and Europe. Todd D. Little is Professor of Psychology, Director of the Quantitative Training Program, and a member of the Developmental Training Program at the University of Kansas (KU), where he is also Director of the Center for Research Methods and Data Analysis. Past president of the American Psychological Association's Division 5 (Evaluation, Measurement, and Statistics), Dr. Little organizes and teaches in the internationally renowned KU \u0022Stats Camps\u0022 each June. Noel A. Card is Associate Professor in Family Studies and Human Development at the University of Arizona. His research centers on social development and quantitative methods, and especially the interface of these disciplines. Dr. Card's developmental research focuses on aggression and peer relations during childhood and adolescence; his quantitative interests include longitudinal analyses, analysis of interdependent data, and meta-analysis. He is a recipient of the Society for Research in Child Development\u2019s Early Career Research Award.
