The Office of Student Research Announces a Peer Statistics Specialist
Many students find statistics to be extremely challenging and demanding. Gerard E. Dallal’s article Is Statistics Hard illustrates why. In his article Dallal mentions that students struggle in statistics because they find the wording to be backwards, the methods to be convoluted, because they get confused with the idea that saying something failed to find an effect is different from showing there is no effect at all. The Office of Student Research has hired a Peer Statistics Specialist to assists students with questions about SPSS, data analysis, survey design and administration.
