This course covers the univariate and bivariate statistical techniques frequently used by human service professionals. Students will be given the opportunity to gain statistical skills regarding analysis and interpretation of data. Practical applications of these techniques will be emphasized. This course presumes no statistical background other than college-level algebra or its equivalent. The course goal is to develop many of the basic conceptual theories underlying statistical applications. Students will develop skills in descriptive statistical analysis, simple correlation procedures, and hypothesis testing. Computer-assisted analysis (such as SPSS) will complement course work.
