Let’s talk stats. Feeling uncertain when you hear those words? This session is for you. We outline and practice key questions that professionals, leaders, and stakeholders can use to request and confirm planned analyses and discuss results. This session provides insight into the purpose of statistics, what it can and cannot tell us, and the key features for creating an aligned design. It also helps explain why changing the wording on a question gets your stats person worried.

Higher Education and Beyond Webinars are designed to be professional, engaged learning spaces with interaction and questions. They are not recorded. Slides are provided to attendees.
