About GAFL500-028 Elements of Data Analytics:

Elements of Data Analytics will explore different methods of data collection, taking students through research design and methodology, up to the point of analysis (to be covered in future classes within the Fels coursework). Starting with a review of existing data sources, we will cover methods of data collection - quantitative, survey, and qualitative. The course will help students identify the best approach to collecting data to answer research/evaluation questions. The course will also cover data limitations, and publically available resources for data access. This half credit course will provide students helpful information to prepare them for the second part of this semester course, GAFL500-029, but students are not required to take GAFL500-029 after taking this course, and students are not required to have taken GAFL500-028 to take GAFL500-029.
