  Course Description
The course will take students through the stages of a quantitative research project, including developing and testing hypotheses, exploring data, presenting results, and thinking through significance and implications, all with the goal of understanding how statistics can be used as a problem-solving tool in schools and districts. The purpose of this course is to train school leaders to properly analyze data, use statistical software, and be critical consumers of research, so as to understand and address issues of concerns in their local contexts. This course covers descriptive and inferential statistics. Students will learn to identify the type of data, select appropriate statistic and graphical methods, analyze data, and interpret the results. Specific methods include t-tests, correlations, simple linear regressions, and multiple regressions. Students will learn how to use Excel to execute these tasks.
