Today is

Interests:

mathematical and statistical problem solving with computer pro-

gramming languages; teaching computing basics and applications.

Special interests include measurement theory; the general linear model,

applications of matrix algebra, (heretical) perspectives on statistical

significance and hypothesis testing,and computer programming languages.

Demonstrable versus imaginary benefits of computing; unwholesome impacts

of computing and especially of the Internet and computers and the school

setting; the effective and irrelevant applications of Distance Learning.

Now available: See the links menu for generic SPSS codes that run in SPSS Windows

Production Facility or SPSS PC Syntax Editor modes. Find schematic DATA LIST,

CROSSTABS, FREQUENCIES, DESCRIPTIVES, CORRELATIONS, FACTOR, RELIABILITY, REGRESSION,

T-TEST, ONEWAY, MANOVA, LOGISTIC REGRESSION, and more. Especially important for true

multivariate sample comparisons and correlations problems using MANOVA (SPSS PC General

Linear Model fails to produce required output for these approaches, so beware!)

Make-up examinations for any course in the Department will be administered on Friday mornings between 8:00am

and noon. Plan to finish by closing time, noon sharp. The Department offices are on the 3rd floor of MCL.

My office is now MCL 302D. Other faculty offices are on the 3rd and 4th floors of MCL.

The most effective methods for contacting me remain email and dropping in during office hours. Graduate students

enrolled in my CSCI 5921 consultation for research design and statistical analysis can visit during office hours

in lieu of making fixed appointments, but do arrange appointments by email as desired. Undergrads drop in as needed.

Note in the links menu that I am building an on-line resource of course materials containing syllabus, reading notes,

worksheets and other handouts. It is under construction, and I will make many revisions from time to time. Course

resource documents will be in formats that are Windows-friendly, such as Word, Notepad, Excel, and SPSS PC data sets.

CSCI 5793: Statistical Packages I -- Survey of descriptive statistics,__

bivariate correlations, factor analysis, multiple regression, canonical

correlations analysis, anova, ancova, manova. Tabling and interpreting.

Note: SPSS PC is used, both in Windows (mouse and menus) and syntax mode.

CSCI 5893: Statistical Packages II -- In-depth look at the procedures

covered in StatPack I from the standpoint of assumptions and outliers.

Also introducing Logistic Regression and Path Analysis, with visits to

Time-Series Analysis and Log-Linear models examined, time permitting.

Emphasis on mathematical bases of univariate and multivariate procedures.

CSCI 5921: Research Consultation Laboratory (Statistical Analysis with Computers).

Private consultation in research design and statistical analysis of research data for

Masters and Ph.D. students.** Note that CSCI 5921 is this Department's exclusive outlet
for formal and extensive assistance with dresearch design and statistical analysis.
