RSCH 8250D - Advanced Quantitative Reasoning and Analysis


(4 cr.) Students build upon the knowledge and skills acquired in RSCH 8200 - Quantitative Reasoning and Analysis and have experience applying them in this course. They develop more specialized knowledge and skills for designing quantitative research at the doctoral level, including understanding multivariate data analysis and applying more advanced statistical concepts. Students explore comprehensive quantitative research designs and suitable statistical tests, the importance of quality assurance, and ethical considerations and social change implications of conducting quantitative research and producing knowledge. In this course, students approach statistics from a problem-solving perspective with emphasis on selecting the appropriate research design and statistical tests for more complex research questions or problems. They use statistical software to perform analyses and interpret and present results. Students will apply and synthesize their knowledge and skills by developing a quantitative research plan. (Prerequisite(s): RSCH 8200 or EDUC 8800 or EDUC 8900.)
