Statistics

As we find it very important to make sure that Teaching Excellence provides the best it can, we measure the results of the course through subjective Bayesian statistics. The results below are very preliminary. Yet one of the many advantages of using subjective Bayesian statistics is that results can be published right away. The reason is that these results are only used to help you in your subjective estimation of the probability that Teaching Excellence helps teachers improve the learnings and behaviour of their students. For a detailed description of how to interpret subjective Bayesian data, please go to: how to interpret subjective Bayesian statistics. To learn more about the reason why NLP practitioners can only use subjective Bayesian statistics, please go: statistics for NLP.

The very preliminary results as of February 7th 2014 are that 14 out of 16 (87.5%) teachers who participated in Teaching Excellence improved the behaviour of their students in class and 15 out of 16 (93.8%) improved the learning of their students.
