Measurement and Statistics - Graduate Certificate


Florida State’s Measurement & Statistics graduate certificate program prepares students to be equipped with essential quantitative skills, which are becoming more and more in demand in a variety of fields. Quantitative analysis is considered very important, particularly with large or big data, and the Measurement & Statistics certificate program provides students with data analysis skills using applied statistical methods and educational/psychological measurements.

The program is designed for graduate students (outside of FSU’s Measurement & Statistics graduate degree program) and non-degree seeking students with bachelor’s degrees. Enrolled students can take their certificate courses at their own pace.

Students in the Measurement & Statistics certificate program learn popular applied statistical inferential techniques, such as analysis of variance and multilevel modeling in the context of applied social science research. In addition, they will learn classical test theory and modern measurement techniques, along with essential latent variable methods – all of which are necessary for test development and its validation.
