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. For more information, please see Peer Statistics Specialist.
OSR Student Grants
We are pleased to announce that applications for OSR Student Grants are being accepted for the academic year 2013 - 2014. Each award will not exceed US $500 per student per academic year.

The OSR Student Grant is not designed to cover the costs associated with class projects, class assignments or any activities that are associated with a traditional “in the classroom” course.
