Description

In this course we will study the basic concepts and techniques of quantitative data analysis. We will also learn some statistical computing skills using SPSS software. While there will be an emphasis on statistical techniques as they are used by social scientists, the course will provide the foundation needed for any kind of statistical analysis. We will not use math beyond basic algebra, and you do not need previous statistical computing experience. Furthermore, you need not be a "math-oriented" person to do well in this course. Students who apply good study skills — consistently attending class & section meetings, reading assigned texts, and doing all assigned work on time — can expect to do well in the course. Grades will be based on in-class exams, homework assignments, and a few statistical computing assignments. Because statistical analysis of any type involves step-by-step procedures and the presentation of results in standardized ways, some emphasis will be placed upon your general ability to perform analyses and present results as instructed. Therefore, a small portion of your score on assigned work will be determined by its form and presentation. If you come to class regularly, keep up with the coursework, and perform your work in a manner consistent with written instructions, you will learn basic statistics and earn a good grade along the way.
