This course provides postgraduate training in educational research methods. The course covers the various research methodologies used in education that involve quantitative data (from experiments to surveys, single-subject designs to group interventions) and provides a background to related statistical analytic procedures. The course will familiarise students with those concepts and assumptions underlying such educational research and provide education-based examples to support understanding. The aims of the course are to bring the student to the point where they have the basic skills/knowledge to interpret most quantitative research papers, as well as the background to undertake thesis-level work that includes quantitative research.
