The instructor's philosophy is based on constructivist view of learning which states that students construct their perception of reality. The Instructor provides guidance like lectures, assignments and tutoring but learning task is placed entirely on student's shoulders. Full use of computer technology is one of the ways the instructor guides students.
The intent is to introduce students to many of the important concepts and procedures they are likely to need in order to (1) evaluate such daily inputs as organizational reports, newspaper articles, radio and television commentaries, (2) improve their ability to make better decisions over a wide range of topics, and (3) improve their ability to measure and cope with changing conditions both at home and on the job. The emphasis will be placed on explaining statistical procedures and interpreting the resulting conclusions
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. For this course, the core assessment is a final exam to be administered in all sections of EC 315. This exam is worth 30 percent of the student’s final grade and will test students’ mastery of core learning outcomes through short answer questions on specific knowledge, Regression analysis procedure, and hypothesis testing.
