PhD Research, Measurement and Statistics Educational Psychology

University of North Texas
The Educational Psychology Ph.D. with a concentration in Research, Measurement and Statistics (RMS) is designed to prepare scholars and researchers in both quantitative and qualitative methodology. You'll initially be exposed to the same foundational courses in intermediate statistics, research methods, and qualitative inquiry that all other doctoral students acquire in the College of Education. You'll also be exposed to foundational courses in Educational Psychology as part of the core portion of the Ph.D.

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.
