Research for Better Schools Career Education Analysis Service Guide. Education Is Going to Work.
Designed for use with Research for Better Schools' evaluation system, this guide focuses upon basic concepts and statistical procedures applicable to specific research hypotheses emerging from evaluation questions. The first of three sections presents a discussion of descriptive statistics in terms of frequency, central tendency, variability, and applicability of descriptive statistics in evaluation. Focusing on inferential statistics, section 2 discusses samples and populations, hypotheses and probability, and applicability of inferential statistics in evaluation. The final section describes eight statistical tests: (1) one sample t-test, (2) independent samples t-test, (3) matched groups t-test, (4) univariate analysis of variance, (5) univariate analysis of covariance, (6) chi-square test, (8) product-moment correlation coefficient, and (8) rank-order correlation coefficient.
