ADAPTING THE TEACHING OF STATISTICS FOR RESEARCH STUDIES, A PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE

A.V. Garcia Luengo

University of Almeria (SPAIN)
Most of the applicable statistical methods are a fundamental subject of great relevance in many research studies. For this reason, different materials and new technologies appropriate for the teaching of Statistics are introduced in the classroom. We do not aim the rigorous proof of the statistical technologies skills but a presentation of the theoretical basic knowledge of these disciplines. We make a great effort creating educational materials and interactive methods using the most innovative teaching techniques to facilitate the learning process.

The practice presented in this paper is focused on creating, developing and working on applications, which help us transmitting information with a great saving of time. Moreover, our students assume an active role to maximize their educational potential. More concretely, it was presented for Nursing Studies students, from the University of Almeria (Spain).

In order to extract conclusions, the data collection is performed by the use of a questionnaire, the measurement of both qualitative and quantitative variables and the choice of a suitable experimental procedure, are taken into account.

The aim of this study was to assess both, the effects of a warming program before physical activity and a stretching program at the end of physical activity, that contributed to the improvement of the quality of life in individuals between 18 and 65 years old.

The proposed practical experience has been of great interest for the students, all the results have been carried out using the statistical package "SPSS" and the outputs have been shown and interpreted to pupils with the Powerpoint program.

Once completed this study, the students may allow to prepare a diagnosis, in order to decide on the organization and an appropriate carrying out of the nursing care of the patient.
