Graduate Level Research Methods and Statistics Courses: The Perspective of an Instructor
Mulvenon, Sean W.; Wang, Victor C. X.
International Journal of Adult Vocational Education and Technology, v6 n4 Article 1 p1-11 2015
The goal of an educational system or degree program is to "educate" students. This immediately raises the question of what does it mean to "educate" students. All academic institutions, degree programs and content areas are typically expected to answer this question and establish appropriate academic expectations both within the classroom and as part of their specific academic programs. The theme of this special edition is to provide insight on the challenges of improving graduation rates in both undergraduate and graduate education. As a statistics professor, on many occasions the authors have been part of both college and university committees on research methodology, statistics, and other academic requirements associated with graduate education. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of these experiences and the authors' perspective on how to improve success of students in methodology and statistics courses associated with successfully completing a graduate degree.
