QAC 381: QAC Praxis Service Learning Lab

As a service learning lab, this course provides students with an opportunity to further develop their abilities to analyze data and apply their knowledge and statistical computing skills as they work closely with nonprofit community partners on data analytic projects. Students in the course will identify research questions of interest to the community partner, gather and manage data, conduct statistical analyses, and interpret and summarize results. The service component involves providing statistical consulting to community partners by formulating and completing data analytic projects, the results of which may be used to improve services, identify areas requiring increased services and areas in which services can be made more efficient, as well as improving data collection, data reporting, and organizational functioning.
