      Course Description
    This course is the first in a two-course sequence covering the basics of educational data analytics. The complement to this course (Visual Analytics) is offered in the Spring. This is course is for those who want to take their skills beyond simple record-keeping. The primary goal of this topics course is building confidence in data analytic skills by working with education data to answer common administrative or policy questions. This is not a statistics course and is not a substitute for one though it would greatly complement one. The data examples and tasks come directly from everyday education contexts like schools and colleges. Examples of skills developed are getting cleaning merging data accessing databases formatting and blending data of different structures. No formal prerequisites except a willingness to learn basic coding and how to work with data. All foundational skills are developed through the sequence.
