This course is designed to be an introductory research, data analysis and data interpretation course covering sampling techniques, instrumentation, descriptive statistics and inferential statistics (i.e. hypothesis testing). This course will require class participation, SPSS work in the computer lab and the preparation of a research proposal. Students are expected to select the appropriate sampling technique, instrumentation and data analysis techniques to address their research questions that they developed in Educational Foundations of Research I. Therefore students collect data based on their action research proposal. The data will be analyzed in this course using SPSS.
