ED 664 Design of Experiments (Fall: 3)
Note: During the 2012-13 academic year, this course will be offered in the
fall instead of the regular spring term due to instructor sabbatical.
This course will introduce experimental design as a paradigm for thinking
about the conduct of educational research and evaluation. The goals of this
course are to introduce students to the design and statistical principles
of the experimental approach to educational research with particular emphasis
on the correct analysis of data arising from designed experiments. We will
discuss a variety of experimental designs, their advantages and disadvantages,
estimation of treatment effects, and significance testing. The topics covered
will include the underlying logic of experimental and quasi-experimental
designs, regression discontinuity and factorial designs as well as cluster
randomized and multi-site trials.
