CLEMSON – Cindy Roper, Research and Planning Administrator at the Charles H. Houston Center, will conduct the Spring 2013 Research Workshop for students and faculty. This workshop will take place in Room 213 in Tillman Hall on Wednesday, April 10th, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The workshop will describe the use of the Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) technique by highlighting a Charles H. Houston Center study designed to explore the achievement gap in South Carolina. Participants will learn how to conduct an ANOVA using statistical software as well as how to select, generate, and interpret commonly used post hoc tests.

“This workshop is designed to help students and faculty utilize ANOVA as a research tool,” said Roper. “It combines a hands-on approach with real-world data.”

“The aim of the research workshop is to help students and faculty learn how to utilize empirical research methods to study the Black experience in education,” said Dr. Lamont A. Flowers, Executive Director of the Charles H. Houston Center.
