    Course Description
    This course limits its focus to the practical application of quantitative tools for analyzing data, drawing appropriate conclusions from data sets, and presenting both the analysis and conclusions in ways that enhance communication with appraisal clients. It reviews and furthers the application of basic statistical measures (mean, median, mode, standard deviation, etc.) and spends a good deal of time on graphical and regression analysis for use in producing and understanding various types of graphs. Goals include showing participants how to understand the reliability and validity of all data used to draw conclusions and providing the knowledge needed to check the validity of the conclusions others may draw from the same or similar data sets. Presentations and activities use real-world appraisal applications that are aimed at furthering an appraiser’s ability to provide credible analysis of real property-related issues.
     
    Note. This course is in both the Analytics for Valuation and Real Estate Analyst Professional Development Programs. Please view both Analytics FAQ and Real Estate FAQ, which includes information regarding the courses you’ll need to complete either program successfully.
