ED 742 Overview

This seminar builds upon the research process focus of ED 740 and ED 741, and transitions to a focus on data analysis. It begins with a greater discrimination among different research methodologies, and then focuses on the elements of design that apply to controlled research. Current research studies are used as a springboard to provide students with an understanding of various research methodologies and experimental designs. As students begin working on their dissertation, considerable time is spent working through research process issues. This seminar also builds upon students’ understanding and use of descriptive and inferential statistics, including practical computer applications for research and statistics. Statistical topics include correlation, regression, hypothesis testing, and an introduction to non-parametric statistics and analysis of variance. Prerequisite: ED 741 or department approval.
