Quantitative Methods in Teaching and T&L Research: Making the Most of Your Data

Abstract: While teaching a course, an instructor naturally gathers data from their students: marks for individual questions in assignments, in-class quizzes, surveys, data from Learning Management Systems like Blackboard and Moodle and so on. What can we glean from this information and how can it help our teaching? In this workshop we provide some answers, with special regard to assessment, demonstrating some practical quantitative methods that are easily implementable via commonly available software.

Speaker: Dr. ‪John Alexander WRIGHT, Senior Lecturer, Department of Statistics, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
