Description:

Finally, a clear, demystified approach to learning educational statistics. A narrative, along with videos, output data sets and sample data sets. The video presentations are the focus and will be especially helpful for guiding the learner through the process of conducting statistical analyses using SPSS and interpreting SPSS output data.

Course:

CED 611 Advanced Graduate Statistics (3 semester hours) This course provides additional training in statistics. It will cover basic statistical concepts of validity and reliability. It will include instruction in using and interpreting tests of statistical tests including: advanced correlational methods, multiple regression, t-tests, ANOVA, two-way factorial ANOVA, and selected nonparametric tests. The use of SPSS will be integrated into the course. 

Prerequisites:

Corequisite: CED 610

Learning Outcomes:

The engaged learner will:

  • Identify and explain introductory terminology;
  • Conduct correlational analyses to include simple and bivariate correlation;
  • Conduct factor analysis;
  • Conduct simple and multiple linear regression;
  • Perform comparative analyses to include independent sample t-test, ANOVA, Two-Way ANOVA, and MANOVA; and
  • Conduct selected non-parametric analyses.
Pedagogy Approach:

Presentation videos for fully Online, Hybrid, or Traditional Classroom teaching. Each module will include lecture material and voice over PowerPoint discussions. You will need internet access capable of accessing and viewing the indicated discussions. I am prone to send you out to YouTube presentations as well. 

Assessment Methodology:

Lesson module exams - A grade up to 100 can be earned on the lesson module exams. Please keep in mind that this is a doctoral level research tool course. Do not expect the instructor to explain why you missed a problem on the exam. When you take the exams, make notes regarding the questions and your responses. You are responsible for determining the accuracy of your answers. You are also responsible for the identification of reasons a particular question may have been missed. While this is not good pedagogical practice, this is solid andragogical practice. I want you to take responsibility for your learning. Work with an through your study group to master the material.

Discussion participation - A grade will be assigned for participation in the discussion group for each module. Generally this grade will be 5. A grade of 2 is given the first time that no participation in the discussion forum is evident. Afterwards, a grade of 0 is given.

Reflection - Each module will require that you post thoughts to the journal. The same participation grading methodology will be utilized for reflection activities as that utilized for discussion participation. Generally this grade will be 5. A grade of 2 is given the first time that no participation in the discussion forum is evident. Afterwards, a grade of 0 is given.

Group Assignments - Each student will be assigned to a study group. Each group will have a project for each module. The group should establish rules of operation and hold every member accountable. Please indicate on the first of the project the names of those who participated, as well as, the module for which the project is intended. Group assignments will be awarded a grade ranging from 10 downward.

Correlational Analysis


Added 01/06/2014

Finally, a clear, demystified approach to learning educational statistics. A narrative, along with videos, output data sets and sample data sets. The video presentations are the focus and will be especially helpful for guiding the learner through the process of conducting statistical analyses using SPSS and interpreting SPSS output data.

Correlational analysis is about examining relationships or associations. Generally, correlational analysis considers only two variables at a time.

Factor Analysis


Added 01/06/2014

The second volume in a series of Advanced Educational Statistics, Factor Analysis continues a clear, demystified approach to learning educational statistics. A narrative, along with videos, output data sets and sample data sets are included. As with previous volumes in the series, the video presentations are the focal point and will be especially helpful for guiding the learner through the process of conducting statistical analyses using SPSS and interpreting SPSS output data.

Factor analysis is a correlational analysis that allows a researcher to reduce a large data set into the underlying factors that predict the variable data values. Sounds complicated doesn't it? My goal is to turn this process into something that you understand. Do not panic yet! Sit back and enjoy the videos. I will proceed to develop the concept of factor analysis in a local and concise fashion. The goal is for you to master and utilize the concept. An Introduction to Factor Analysis Factor analysis is a truly powerful process. Imagine reducing a large set of variables into only a set of underlying factors. This is why factor analysis is often referred to as data reduction. The videos move through the things that one must know in order to conduct and draw meaning from a factor analysis. Hope that you find them enjoyable.
