Development of New Materials to Improve the Training of Students in Data Analysis. Final Report.
Abrahams, Frederick F.
New materials and approaches focusing on data analysis are described in this report. Students were exposed to a brief instruction on survey analysis. Then they used a series of games designed to aid the learning of data analysis, and worked with tables of data presented in different training formats designed to sharpen analytical skills. Limitations of previous methodology texts and instruction in data analysis are listed in the beginning of the report. Details are given of the training formats and the games which were developed, and their use is analyzed. A section on questionnaire construction is included. The evaluation of the effectiveness of the developed materials is given in terms of the author's impressions, based upon experiences with the materials in four graduate level methodology courses.
