Welcome to the information repository for the MRES lab. We are located on the Fairfax campus of George Mason University in the Department of Psychology. MRES is a group of social and behavioral scientists dedicated to applying our methodological skills to real world problems. The Measurement Research methodology Evaluation and Statistics Web Resources are maintained by our lab community. We setup the pages in a wiki format so that privileged users could modify the content and update the pages. The pages in this wiki contain our varied interets in Measurement, Research Methodology, Evaluation, and Statistics. Please feel free to explore the wiki at your leisure.
