Course Title

Seminar in Research in Science Education II

Description

This course is the second of two consecutive courses in research techniques and research study findings in science education. The objective is to introduce graduates to tools used in research and study how data are used to look more carefully at cause and effect in teaching and learning. In the process, graduates will complete an original research study in an area of interest. The study is expected to be well-designed and follow the appropriate APA format for a publishable paper. Quantitative studies that rely on numerical data analysis and qualitative studies that rely more heavily on observational, descriptive measures will be reviewed. Further, common statistical procedures used in various studies will be discussed.
