Problem 7E

Course Selection A student entering a doctoral program in educational psychology is required to select two courses from the list of courses provided as part of his or her program.

EPR 616, Research in Child Development

EPR 630, Educational Research Planning and Interpretation

EPR 631, Nonparametric Statistics

EPR 632, Methods of Multivariate Analysis

EPR 645, Theory of Measurement

EPR 649, Fieldwork Methods in Educational Research

EPR 650, Interpretive Methods in Educational Research

(a) List all possible two-course selections.

(b) Comment on the likelihood that the pair of courses EPR 630 and EPR 645 will be selected.

Solution :

Step 1 of 2:

From the given problem we know that a student entering a doctoral program in educational psychology.

Then the list is given below,

EPR 616, Research in Child Development.

EPR 630, Educational Research Planning and Interpretation.

EPR 631, Nonparametric Statistics.

EPR 632, Methods of Multivariate Analysis.

EPR 645, Theory of Measurement.

EPR 649, Fieldwork Methods in Educational Research.

EPR 650, Interpretive Methods in Educational Research.

Our goal is :

a). We need to list the all possible two-course selections.

b). We need to comment on the likelihood that the pair of courses EPR 630 and EPR 645.

a). Now we are listing the all possible two-course selections :

1). EPR 616, EPR 630.

2). EPR 616, EPR 631.

3). EPR 616, EPR 632.

4). EPR 616, EPR 645.

5). EPR 616, EPR 649.

6). EPR 616, EPR 650.

7). EPR 630, EPR 631.

8). EPR 630, EPR 632

9). EPR 630, EPR 645.

10). EPR 630, EPR 649.

11). EPR 630, EPR 650.

12). EPR 631, EPR 632.

13). EPR 631, EPR 645

14). EPR 631, EPR 649.

15). EPR 631, EPR 650.

16). EPR 632, EPR 645.

17). EPR 632, EPR 649.

18). EPR 632, EPR 650.

19). EPR 645, EPR 649.

20). EPR 645, EPR 650.

21). EPR 649, EPR 650.
