You'll receive more advanced training, primarily in quantitative methods, however additional coursework includes advanced data analysis in qualitative investigations.
Entry to advanced training begins with a course in Multiple Regression. A two-course sequence is usually required in measurement and psychometrics, and you'll also receive additional training in latent variable modeling through coursework in multivariate statistics and structural equation models.
Training is provided in courses such as Multi-level Modeling, Simulation and the use of advanced software for statistical analysis. Coursework is followed by a comprehensive examination prior to completion of a dissertation under a faculty member of the RMS program.
This preparation supplies most of the necessary skills for pursuing an academic career, although approximately half of our graduates opt to pursue careers in corporations conducting research or in development (such as in test development) or in school districts directing assessment, evaluation or accountability functions.
