Perceptions of purpose
19Many students have a complete obsession about using statistics for statistics sake in the projects whether it makes sense or not. I consider it wrong that so much emphasis is being put on them using statistics in RP1 as many good research projects could be carried out without the use of statistics.
28I am continually frustrated year after year by the [very basic] statistical methods that the students use.
26The RP1 provides students with an introduction to reading the literature with research in mind and not just finding out facts.
