An introductory course to statistical concepts, theory and designs in educational research methods: a combination of strengths and weaknesses
AbstractEver since its founding, the Pedagogy Department at the Complutense University of Madrid has considered statistics to be fundamental instrument in the training of educational researchers. For this reason, the department has made every effort for the teaching of statistics to keep pace with the field itself. However, the results so far have been unsatisfactory. These negative results, combined with Pedagogy students’ initial limited ability in statistical processing, point out the need for new techniques that can be used to teach research methods in education.
