This class provides a concentrated overview of the statistics and research methodology required for the GRE and prerequisites for graduate schools in psychology, social work, education, and other social sciences. It also meets the statistics prerequisite for the graduate programs at Evergreen. We emphasize hands-on, intuitive knowledge and approach statistics as a language rather than as math alone; thus this class is gentle on "math phobics." No computer skills are required. You will become an informed and savvy consumer of information, from the classroom to the workplace. We will cover descriptive and inferential statistics, research methodology and ethics. The material will be presented in modules, allowing flexibility of scheduling and the ability to learn in both online and asynchronous settings. 

Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
