Module 3 Discussion
DQ1 Statistical research topic
As we have discussed, sometimes the data used in statistical studies can be intentionally or unintentionally flawed or misrepresented. There are many reasons that this may happen. (Links to an external site.)
This week I would like for everyone to discuss some of their findings from their research project that you have been working on.
Are you planning to examine flawed research or misinterpreted data?
What types of data were used in the research?
Did you have difficulty finding resources and what sources did you use (library articles, general search or another database)?
Did you discover anything particularly interesting about your research?
How will this project help your future academic or career goals?
DQ2 College statistics

How do you think these statistics were calculated? Who is responsible for tabulating and sorting through all this data? Since the time the video was made what do you think changed the most and in what way? Lastly, were any of these numbers shocking to you?
