About the Course

Tell Me About The Program And Course Materials

In short, the materials within this program are designed to help instructors deliver the Ideal Stats Class. One might suggest that the Ideal Stats Class would go beyond illustrating/teaching students several statistical tests (such as t-tests, chi-squares, and perhaps multivariate regression). In essence, these statistical tests are part of the larger process quantitative analysis.

Subsequently, there is a limited utility in knowing part (i.e., the aforementioned several statistical tests) of the larger process without an awareness of the overall process of quantitative analysis itself. In other words we might posit, what good is knowing a few statistical tests if you are unaware of the larger process of quantitative analysis, which is necessary in order to apply the statistical tests properly and effectively?

Therefore, Ideal Stats Class would provide the student with an overview of the process of conducting a quantitative study, as well as instruction on how to conduct the statistical procedures therein. It is reasonable to state that students might learn the process of a quantitative study, as well as how to conduct and apply the statistical tests within, through the teaching goals of instructing students on how to:

1. Draft a proposal for an original statistical research study (Mid-term Assignment)

2. Conduct an effective statistical research study (Instruction on Statistical Tests); and

3. Write-up the statistical findings in scientific tables and text (Final Assignment)

You might note that these teaching goals are especially beneficial to doctoral students, as the learning would help them meet their dissertation/Capstone requirements. However, these teaching goals for a one-semester course are in no way exclusive to doctoral level classes.

Specifically, it could be speculated that the earlier these topics are taught to a fledgling researcher, the more advantageous would be the learning to the trajectory of the scientist’s career. Therefore, the materials within this program begin at a completely foundational level.

In other words, the materials within this program are designed to empower students who have little to no experience with statistics and/or research on how to draft a research proposal, conduct a quantitative study, write-up findings, and present the study findings in a powerpoint slideshow. Thus, this program is appropriate for use at the undergraduate, Masters, and Doctoral levels.

This program provides instructors with three primary materials to be used as teaching tools. Briefly, instructors are provided with a Support Manual, Video Presentations, and a Textbook that work in tandem to meet course objectives. These materials are discussed in detail below.

The Support Manual

The support manual presents the course syllabus for the semester (specifying weekly reading assignments, quizzes, as well as the midterm and final assignment), as well as details regarding how each task and weekly lesson relates to student learning objectives. You may view a suggested class syllabus that presents that materials to be covered at: Course Syllabus

The Support Videos

There are 14 videos within this program. Each video presents the subject matter and learning for each week of the semester. The videos are appropriate for both students and professors to view. Specifically, professors may present these videos directly to their students as an addendum to their class on a weekly basis. Alternately, instructors may also elect to view the videos on their own, as a means of contributing to their lesson plans.

The Central Textbook (Free Copy Included With Registration)

The central textbook suggested for use and listed in the class syllabus is the text (Please Click Title) The 7 Steps of Data Analysis: A Manual for Conducting a Quantitative Analysis Study. This text is ideally suited for use, as the book is written to instruct readers on how to structure and conduct an effective and legitimate quantitative analysis research study.

During the current semester, a free copy of The 7 Steps of Data Analysis textbook (Regularly: $122) will be included with registration for this program.

Furthermore, as a part of the current special, instructors who register for this program may get a 40% discount off the cost of the textbook for their students. Specifically, students may purchase the textbook for use in the course for $75.60. If you would like to take advantage of this offer please email Dr. Bannon to make arrangements.

Program Structure

The syllabus (for an example see: The Ideal Statistics Class Syllabus) specifies that students are taught about quantitative research by directly performing a quantitative research study. In this program, the computer software SPSS is used for such analysis. Sample SPSS databases are provided as a part of this program to be used for quantitative analysis if needed.

The syllabus within the manual suggests that grading will consist of 6 quizzes given during the semester to test student knowledge and retention, a class midterm (which is a a research proposal based upon the student’s original research study), and a final (a an original research report/manuscript based upon the proposed statistical analysis plan in the student’s proposal).

Special Offer: Free 1 Hour Personal Consultation

Registration purchased by the current semester will also include a free 1 hour personal consultation with Dr. Bannon (Regularly: $250). This consultation may concern any topic desired by the registrant from implementing the support manual and videos to personal quantitative analysis research projects.
