KINES 462W Research Project (2)

During this course students will collect and analyze data for a research project. They will trouble shoot any data collection problems and learn how to use computerized programs for statistical analysis of data. They will learn about various presentation modes relevant to the written and oral presentation of research data. Students will prepare and be evaluated on a research paper that reports on their research project. In addition, they will present their work orally in showcase sessions to which fellow students and faculty members are invited. The goal is for students to produce as close as possible to publishable papers. This course is part of a two-course sequence and can only be taken upon successful completion of KINES 461W. It, along with the internship experience, are the culminating experiences in the Exercise Science - Science Emphasis. Facilitates needed will be determined based on the individual research project. This course will be offered only in the spring semester of each year. Enrollment will vary from 1 to 25.
