Because of variation, we have statistics. When all is the same, there is not much to consider. Differences make life interesting. Thus, to think statistically we must give much thought and consideration to variance. A key step often overlooked by time-poor and assignment laden students. However, as a tutor, I highly recommend you invest pockets of time across your day to reflect on your class and textbook learning about dispersion, variance, standard deviation and standard er

A fresh perspective on lifestyle at a university when one has a disability. The academic journey, from one man's viewpoint, is outlined here to encourage others who are blind or vision-impaired. This is an anecdotal note on people with disabilities undertaking tertiary education. As always this is a personal viewpoint. My first round of tertiary education started in 1971 when I enrolled for a two-year course at an agricultural college. I was not blind at this time; however, m

Most uni students who contact me for essay help, is for a plan to get underway writing. Discovering and developing your Writing Voice is an Art, and it will take time. Sometimes student's are impatient to just get a psychology essay done. However, if you don't provide yourself with an outline (plan), you are less likely to Draft, and thus create a logical and rich argument. So I thought I would share the basic critical essay template I use to create an Outline for a student.

A brilliant way to deepen your psychology and statistic learning, is to apply your skills. For example, I volunteer in my community in Cairns to enhance recycling and sustainability efforts.

What are the obstacles for college and uni students using campus and online technologies? Including discourse of the lived experience that is not that of the sighted-world, can help navigation of non-inclusive technologies and tap potential uses of existing IoT. There is much talk and excitement these days about virtual reality, and its close cousin augmented reality. While these technologies have been around for a couple of decades, they are only now becoming a regular part
Matched samples, I've learnt, alongside random assignment, are the key to a robust comparative research design. Gertler and colleagues (2014) longitudinal study was informative of covariates that can radically impact on learning outcomes. My teammate and I agreed it could be of benefit to others to upload our assignment presentation for others to share.
