Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to provide students with the methodology of quantitative and qualitative research work, methods of mathematical statistics and with their application in educational research. Focus will be mainly on research methodology, formulation of the research problem, research assumptions and hypothesis.
Students can: - Present the statistical data in tabular, graphical, and using quantitative indicators, - Use basic distributionns, - Analyze samples with emphasis on applications in education, use Excel spreadsheets, - Proper use of specialized terminology and symbolism, - Use communication skills in technical language and has acquired the means of graphic communication, - Analyze univariate and multivariate statistical area Student competences: Competence in the fundamental analysis of one-dimensional space, working with parametric and non-parametric data, character, competence continues to elementary mathematics, informatics and didactics.
A prerequisite is the ability of students to work with Excel
