The 3rd Annual Statistical Summer School will be held at the School of Education, NUI Galway, June 22nd-24th 2016.  This Summer School is the third in a series being organised collaboratively by the School of Education, NUI, Galway and the Department of Education and Professional Studies, UL.  This event has arisen out of a desire to develop statistical competence in the domain of educational research, while promoting data awareness and impact on policy and intervention.

This year’s Summer School, facilitated by Dr. Laura O’ Dwyer (Boston College), will focus on strategies, techniques, tactics, and issues in the development of surveys as measurement instruments.  It will emphasize the theoretical, measurement and practical considerations (including reliability and validity, etc.) in the development of measurement instruments.  The Summer School will include demonstrations and hands-on practice in survey development and data analysis and detailed materials will be provided.

For more information please see the attached document. In order to register for this Summer School please email maire.niriordain@nuigalway.ie  or via the website link available at http://bit.ly/1mUG5le Places are limited to 25 participants.
