Using Data Mining to Teach Applied Statistics and Correlation
Hartnett, Jessica L.
Teaching of Psychology, v43 n2 p142-146 Apr 2016
This article describes two class activities that introduce the concept of data mining and very basic data mining analyses. Assessment data suggest that students learned some of the conceptual basics of data mining, understood some of the ethical concerns related to the practice, and were able to perform correlations via the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS, Version 20).
