Laboratory of psychology is a work unit tasked with facilitating all student practicum activities, research and development of experimental psychological tools. The initial idea of creating a psychology laboratory has existed since the Faculty of Psychology was established in 196, led by the founder of the Faculty of Psychology. The aim is to facilitate the making of a student’s final project or better known as a methodical thesis. Along with curriculum changes from time to time, the laboratory of Psychology facilitates other lecture activities such as Biopsychology in providing miniatures of the human brain, psychodiagnostics and counseling practicums as well as practicum with experimental methods where the development of psychophysical experimental tools is developed.
To answer global challenges, since 2018, the Laboratory of Psychology has begun to develop a “Computer based experimental assessment” with a flagship program developing Implicit Associative Test for measuring attitudes, sexual orientation and happiness in collaboration with related parties such as Dinas Psikologi Angkatan Darat and several universities in Indonesia. In addition, the Laboratory of Psychology Universitas Padjadjaran has a database of psychological instruments containing more than 2000 measurement scales and their manuals for psychological constructs such as: well-being, happiness, leadership resilience, Political Skill inventory, etc. which is useful to help the psychology academic community of Universitas Padjadjaran (civitas) in conducting research and completion of final tasks. This database can only be registered by civitas who is registered in the system.
