Kitakyushu JALT:

Doing data analysis: Some tools and techniques

Date: Saturday, September 14th, 2013 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Paul Collett and Trevor Holster

Description:
The first presenter will introduce the R statistical package to show how it can be used for different types of data analysis, as well as considering some of the substantive issues and critiques related to statistical analysis. The second presenter will introduce Rasch measurement, which assumes probabilistic patterns rather than machine-like deterministic patterns of success and failure. Rasch analysis will be demonstrated using data from a multiple-choice vocabulary test and from judged ratings of classroom presentations.
