The first part of the course will examine in depth the theoretical and epistemological requirements at the basis of the qualitative paradigm, aiming at a critical analysis of the methodological debate concerning the potentials and limits of the different research methods. The second part focuses on the theoretical and empirical knowledge concerning the data collection method of survey, also when orally distributed (interview). All these competences are necessary in view of conducting research in the area of psychosocial sciences and in the main fields of intervention. The investigated topics will be illustrated by means of research conducted in different theoretical and applicative areas (such as national surveys, marketing researches, etc.) and in different modalities (phone and face-to-face interviews; mail or e-mail surveys, etc.). The last part of the course aims at providing the necessary skills in view of an adequate understanding and application of psychological tests. The course will go in depth into the history and diffusion of tests, from the beginning until today. At a later stage, the course will introduce some statistical elements such as the theory of the random error and some fundamental characteristics of the psychological tests (reliability and validity). Last, the course will describe the cognitive tests, personality tests.
