Session Description
This interactive session for beginners and intermediates alike will cover some of the key statistical methods you can use for outcomes analysis of continuing education activities. Don’t expect a statistics class—instead, expect statistical techniques to be demystified, and standard practices to be explained in clear language. You’ll be invited to share your own experiences, as we seek to identify some shared “best practices” in our collective experiences. We’ll cover statistical methods for practical Significance Testing for pre/post questions and rating scales (which test should I use?), Effect Size measurement (what does it measure, and why do we need it?), and other concepts such as Predictive Modeling/Regression Analysis. We’ll cover simple tools you can use online, software you can download, and even how you can get Excel to perform some basic statistical operations (and produce some simple data visualizations). You’ll get a library/bibliography of key articles by your colleagues, loaded with practical advice on applying statistics to outcomes. Finally, we’ll cover what we all have learned in terms of what stakeholders are looking for in terms of statistical analysis and methods and best practices for including statistics in outcomes reports.
