12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Presented by Gina Reed, Professor of Mathematics
Co-sponsored by the Research-Based Teaching Series (RBTS) and CTLL
Statistics: It’s Not Just for STEM Anymore! Conduct Research in ANY Discipline Using Statistical Analysis
Gainesville Campus | Watkins Building 182
The scholarship of teaching and learning provides important data for effective classroom instruction methods at the university level; these data are supported by statistical research not only in STEM fields, but also in the humanities. This one-hour statistics workshop is designed to support the research of all faculty and will provide important methods and tools for conducting quantitative research in the classroom. This research can, potentially, develop into publishable scholarship in the areas of teaching and learning.
The workshop and companion workbook will explain and guide the participants through several statistical methods useful to research with instruction on how to perform the data analysis using the statistical software package, Minitab. No statistical background is required. Included topics are:
- Graphing distributions
- Shapes of distributions
- Measures of central tendency
- Measures of variation
- Best choice for central tendency and variation
- Bivariate data regression analysis
- Hypothesis Testing
RSVPs are required as class size is limited to 14. Please do not use the registration link! Instead RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following subject line: “Statistics Workshop 10/5.” Questions about content can be directed to Gina Reed @ Gina.Reed@ung.edu.
