The Charles H. Houston Center's Research Workshop is designed for faculty, staff, and students who are interested in learning about research methods and analytical techniques utilized to conduct research on the Black experience in education.
The Research Workshop is designed to help participants:
*Conduct research that explores issues impacting the educational experiences and outcomes of African Americans
*Utilize statistical procedures to analyze data pertaining to African Americans in educational settings
*Apply theoretical and conceptual information to explore contemporary issues regarding the Black experience in education
The Fall 2013 Research Workshop will focus on using Regression Analysis, which allows us to predict the values of an outcome (dependent) variable using the values of one or more predictor (independent) variables. We will fit a linear statistical model using data from the South Carolina Department of Education. Participants will learn how to run a regression analysis in SPSS, interpret the output, and how to generate and interpret diagnostic statistics. There will be time at the end of the workshop to ask questions or schedule an appointment to talk about your research.
