Statistics and Computer Application in Education Class: MS Education Course Title: Statistics and Computer Application in Education Course Code: EDU-611 Introduction The aim of this course is to provide students with an introduction to basic statistical tools and quantitative methods that are useful in understanding the type of data encountered in Education. Importantly, it will provide a framework for approaching statistical problems, and experience in learning from associated data. Topics covered include: understanding data, examining relationships, finding difference between groups, and regression, introduction to inference, and nonparametric test. The course also aims to provide familiarity with the use of Excel spreadsheet software for statistical data analysis and problem solving. Learning Outcomes On successful completion of the course, you should be able to: 1. Explain the concepts, theories and techniques of statistical analysis 2. Use statistical skills to present data and apply all relevant statistical tools. 3. Use the standard statistical techniques to interpret and analyze real problems encountered in the discipline. 4. Construct written work which is logically and professionally presented.
