Cracking the Code

Aimed at students who expect to read and interpret, rather than conduct, statistical analyses, this course is designed to help students become better and more critical consumers of quantitative evidence. Using research studies discussed in the popular media and focused on currently debated questions in education and social policy, the course covers key concepts in quantitative reasoning, basic statistics, and research design. Research readings will focus on topical issues regarding early childhood and K-12 education and other social policy issues that affect children.
