Psychology 409   

Instructor: David J. Weiss

          Psychology 409 is a course in computer programming, intended for psychologists.  No previous knowledge of programming is presumed.  The only formal prerequisite is Psych 302, but this course is not about statistics (although statistical examples will be used, since I am teaching the course). The goal of the course is for each student to write a viable WINDOWS program of use to a psychologist.

          We will be programming in VISUAL BASIC (VB6).  Although the annually evolving VB.NET is Microsoft's current dialect, VB6 has the advantage of being a stable language with which I am very familiar. At the novice level, the languages are essentially equivalent. The basic logic of programming is the same for all versions of VB.
