AD(H)D Case Study- Paul: Part 2 of 3

As mentioned in the first post of this series, students present teachers with myriad learning styles and learning differences. In order to take a closer look at the ways tutorials can be customized for students, consider the following case study based on my work with a 16-year-old high school junior named Paul. Paul initially met [...]

Making AD(H)D into a Strength, not a Liability: Part 1 of 3

What do you do when you feel like you are working hard, but not attaining the results you want or the results others expect? Students often seek tutoring to learn specific strategies to study for standardized tests, or for specific help troubleshooting a course with a difficult professor. But some students may have a diagnosed [...]

Statistics: On Multiple Regression

For the final installment in this series on introductory statistics for the social sciences, Kyle T. begins discussing multiple regression, a statistical test and topic that can be subject to much more advanced investigation by those students who are interested in learning more about this subject. In short, multiple regression extends regression in a way [...]

Statistics: On Regression

As promised, this week Kyle T. addresses regression, a more complex correlation model that does allow for interpretations of causality.  However, despite its relative complexity, regression is still just, as Kyle says, “glorified slope-intercept”! Following this logic, you’ll be up and running these analyses in no time. Hoping you’re enjoying the Spring! The Veritas Team

Statistics: On Correlation

Robust like the non-parametric statistics that Kyle T. discussed last week, correlational analyses, Kyle’s topic this week, provide the raw materials for the much vaunted regressive analyses, his topic next week.  In essence, as Kyle explains, correlations generally assess how two sets of patterns of data line up next to one another; and, as he [...]

Statistics: On Non-Parametric Statistics

This week Kyle T. addresses the other major type of statistics: non-parametric statistics.  As he explains, non-parametrics allow for more robust testing than parametrics, since only non-parametrics can test with non-normal distributions and with ordinal (or less) dependent variables.  However, as he adds, non-parametrics’ robustness is counterbalanced by their loss of statistical power; the “collapse” [...]

Statistics: On Factorial AnoVa

This week Kyle T. expands on the basic AnoVa that he’s presented over the past two weeks and shows how it may be used to test groups that differ one more than one categorical variable. This expansion is called the Factorial AnoVa and can be used in between-subjects, within-subjects, and mixed research designs. Next week: [...]

Statistics: On Analysis of Variance (AnoVa – Part Two)

Wrapping up his explanation of the AnoVa, Kyle T. this week presents his third way of understanding the intention of the statistical test by graphically modelling distributions to be compared: By looking at distributions as representations, the comparison becomes clearer than the abstract concepts in consideration. See you in May! The Veritas Team

Statistics: On Analysis of Variance (AnoVa – Part One)

This week, as promised, Kyle T. introduces the extension of the t-Test, the Analysis of Variance (AnoVa), meant for comparisons among more than two participant groups. His explanations of the AnoVa tie onto the heart of the test, discerning the variance within groups from the variance between groups; he turns to information theory for its [...]
