This course provides an introduction to quantitative research designs and statistical principles used in educational research, including survey techniques, correlational designs and experimental methods for investigating causal relations. Topics related to the general linear model are addressed, including simple and multiple regression, analysis of variance, confidence intervals and tests of significance. Decision making with respect to reliability and validity, violation of assumptions, and related issues are considered in the context of examples in educational research.
