EDP 642 Research Project in Special Education

3 hours; 3 credits. This course is the second half of the research sequence. To complete the research projects they began in EDP 640, students review and synthesize the literature, collect data, apply statistical methods for data analysis where appropriate, and discuss the implications of their findings. The flexible design of the course allows students to develop their projects based on portfolios, curriculum design, or research reports that incorporate their understandings of the academic and social needs of students with disabilities, the field of special education, and issues inherent in inclusion. The final project represents the culminating experience of the program. Prerequisites: EDP 621, EDP 622, EDP 624, EDP 640, and EDP 680.
