After offer of admission: Master in Pedagogy and Education


Statistics comprises an important and essential part of the master's programme in Pedagogy and Education. Since everyone has a different level of knowledge, it is good to test yourself as to find out if you have any deficiencies. If you are already accepted to the programme and your score is not at its maximum, self-studying is recommended before starting the programme as statistics and advanced research methodology are an integral part of the master’s programme. We therefore do advice you act according to the recommendations you have received at the end of the test. 

This online course book may help you to prepare for the statistic courses. Below we have prepared an overview of the chapters about the topics that are covered in the first and second year of our bachelor's programme in Pedagogical and Educational Sciences. The third year of our own bachelor covers test theory, which is not a prerequisite for statistics in the master programme. This online course book is just a suggestion for self-studies.
