Upon completion of this introductory course, students should be able to:(1) think critically about statistics used in popular magazines, newspapers, and journal articles, (2)apply the knowledge gained in the course to analyze simple statistics used in research, and (3)design a research study, use a statistical software package to analyze the data generated from this research study, and appropriately report the conclusions of this research study. Active participation is encouraged in this course, and many class periods will be spent working through activities, engaging in small- and large-group discussion, and learning how to use technology to solve different types of problems. Students will be expected to use SPSS in this course. A student-version of SPSS will be sold with the textbook, but this student version runs only on PCs, not on Macs. Any student who uses a Mac may need to complete SPSS work at a computer lab on campus.
