Development of an Instructional Aid for a Course in Multivariate Educational Statistics, Final Report.
Presented is a linear program for matrix algebra required in a first course in multivariate educational statistics. The purpose of the program is to enable graduate students, through self instruction, to acquire sufficient knowledge of matrix algebra to meet the prerequisite of a course in multivariate statistics of a type taught in a department of education. This course introduces the student to multiple and partial correlation, canonical correlation, and multivariate analysis of variance. It assumes some knowledge of matrix operations, determinents, linear dependence and vector spaces, and the characteristic equation of the matrix. A preliminary trial of the program was carried out with 28 graduate students. Analysis of errors made by the students and the reaction of the students to the material was performed for the purpose of revising the program. The revised material was given to another 29 graduate students and necessary revision was made. (RP)
