1. 1. 741 March 2Chapter 6 1. Since qualitative analysis is an inductive process it is necessary to reduce the amount of information. The recommendation for reduction is through coding of information and then sorting and organizing the information through that coding system. Analysis is then done through an interpretation of the coded data. Naturally it is essential to continually reflect upon the information throughout the analysis process. 2. a. descriptive statistics: i. main goal: mathematical method used to summarize and organize large amounts of numerical data ii. types of conclusions: conclusions can include measures of central tendency which includes mean, median and mode, dispersion which includes range and standard deviation and a correlation coefficient used to measure the degree of relationship between two variables. b. inferential statistics i. main goal: using the information gleaned from your study group, how reasonable is it to apply that result to a larger group. This type of analysis also eliminates differences between comparison groups that happens only by chance. ii. types of conclusions: independent-measures tests are used to test and conclude for comparison of two groups on one variable and repeated –measures test is used if applying two measure on the same study group. If more than two groups are being compared ANOVA is used. And if data is used within categories as frequency counts than a chi-square analysis is used. 3. categories: a. how much assigned b. expectation of how long it will take student c. philosophy on HW d. purpose for hw e. type of hw: simple regurgitation of textbook material as a foundation for classroom discussion or does hw require synthesis of information such as a lab report conclusion or a gold medal problem.Observation:Qualitative question: How does the teacher maintain academic focus in a support class?Setting: 8th Grade Math support class
