Compulsory literatureA large part of the statistical lectures are based on the Digital Mathematics Environment modules (DME). In addition to the modules, it is recommended to study the book Discovering Statistics Using IBM SPSS Statistics (London, UK, SAGE edge, 4th edition) by Andy Field.
The scientific research lectures are based on Social Science Research: Principles, Methods, and Practices by Anol Bhattacherjee (second edition). In addition to the book, more articles will be announced during the course
|Course form:||The course consist of a combination of lectures, lab sessions, and a research assignment. The lectures provide the necessary theoretical background to conduct the research assignment and lab sessions.
Being a researcher is an active and practical endeavor. For that reason the research assignment and lab sessions are a very important part of the course. There are two main types of assignments:
|Exam form:||There are three main components to define the final grade: research assignment, lab assignments, and written exams.
- Assignment A (individual): Research paper - problem investigation and research set up counts for 15% of the grade
- Assignment B (groups of 4): Research paper - problem investigation, research set up, and data analysis counts for Sufficient/Insufficient. This assignment is mandatory.
- Assignment C (individual): Peer review report counts for 10% of the grade
- Assignment D (groups of 4): Poster presentation and symposium count for 10% of the grade
- Assignment E (groups of 4): Research paper - final version counts for 15% of the grade
-The mid term written exam counts for 20% of the grade
-The final written exam counts for 20% of the grade
Final gradeThe Final Grade (FG) of the course is calculated as follows:
FG = research assignment grade*0.5 + lab assignments grade*0.1 + exams grade*0.4
The final grade has to be a 5.5 or higher for the student to successfully finish the course.
All separate grades (research assignment, lab assignments, and exams) have to be a 5.5 or higher for the student to successfully finish the course.
|Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:||It is possible to repair one of the three main components of the final grade (research assignment, or lab assignments, or exams) if FG is at least 4.0. The regulations for the additional tests are:
Research assignment. It is possible to repair the research assignment up to 5.5, but only if 4.0<= research assignment grade< 5.5. You are admitted to repair the research assignment if:
Lab assignments. It is possible to repair the lab assignments up to 5.5, but only if 4.0<= lab assignments grade< 5.5. You are admitted to repair the lab assignment if:
Exams. It is possible to repair the exams. The repaired exam replaces only the lowest grade of the two exams (mid term written exam and final written exam). You are admitted to repair the exams if:
Final grades The final grade for students with access to the additional tests (FGadd) is as follows: FGadd = min (5, FG) = 5. Code in osiris = AANV
The final grade for students that fail the course (FGfail) is as follows: FGfail = min (3, FG) = 3. Code in osiris = NVD
