Regression analysis in educational research, 7.5 credits
Regression analysis is the most commonly used method to answer questions regarding relationships between variables and groups. This technique is valuable and fundamental to empirically address many educational research questions. Examples are: How do parents and siblings affect the school outcomes of a child? How does school climate and students' socioeconomic composition impact average school achievement? What are the factors that may affect the probability for a student to choose a school that is located outside his/her residential area?
