Strategies for Choosing a Data Collection Technique

1. Strategies for Choosing a Data Collection Technique

After figuring out what you are going to study, you, as the researcher, will need to figure out how to study it. This lesson discusses popular ways a researcher can collect data as well as why a researcher would chose a particular data collection technique.

Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

2. Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

By describing the data using central tendency, a researcher and reader can understand what the typical score looks like. In this lesson, we will explore in more detail these measures of central tendency and how they relate to samples and populations.

Probability of Simple, Compound and Complementary Events

3. Probability of Simple, Compound and Complementary Events

Simple, compound, and complementary events are different types of probabilities. Each of these probabilities are calculated in a slightly different fashion. In this lesson, we will look at some real world examples of these different forms of probability.

Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

4. Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

Sometimes probabilities need to be calculated when more than one event occurs. These types of compound events are called independent and dependent events. Through this lesson, we will look at some real-world examples of how to calculate these probabilities.

What is Theoretical Probability? - Definition, Formula & Examples

5. What is Theoretical Probability? - Definition, Formula & Examples

Have you ever heard someone ask, 'What are the odds?' Usually what it is meant is, 'How likely is it that an event will happen?' This lesson explores finding the likelihood, or theoretical probability, that an event could occur.
