Ed.), NY. Collins
A packet of additional materials will be available for purchase.
Students are expected to attend lectures, participate in discussion,
outside readings, complete various short papers that include the solution of
problems that require the application of various correlation procedures,
mid-term and final exams that each contain in-class and out-of-class
components, and complete an appropriate term project.
An introduction to various indicators of association including parametric
non-parametric procedures. It includes the application of multiple
analysis to experimental and non-experimental data, and related topics such
as partial and
semi-partial correlations, shrinkage, cross-validation, multicollinearity,
suppression, trend analysis, and curvilinear and exponential regression. A
survey of multivariate procedures is presented, including canonical and
discriminant analysis, the multivariate analysis of variance, as well as
cluster, principal components and factor analyses.
The course will emphasize a conceptual understanding of these procedures.
The focus will be on the selection of appropriate procedures, the solution
problems using the SPSS computer programs, and the appropriate
interpretation of results.
