This short course will provide a hands-on introduction to statistics used in educational research and evaluation. Participants will learn statistical concepts, principles, and procedures by building Excel spreadsheets from scratch in a guided learning approach using short video-based tutorials. Examples of specific skills to be learned include scales of measurement, measures of central tendency, measures of variability, and the computation of the following: mean, mode, and median, standard deviation, z (standard) scores, Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (r), correlated-samples t test (i.e. dependent t test), independent-samples t test (i.e. independent t test), and a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA).

The course is about few statistics: standard deviation, z- scores, Pearson coefficient , t-test, and ANOVA. I don't know why it's called "Statistics in Education", there is nothing education-specific there, and it's not a coursera-like MOOC, but rather short demonstration of formulas in Excel. There is no actual homework, 1-2 quiz questions just to check if you saw the video, no project or data to work with.
Speaking about statistics in education: 909 people started this course, 109 completed. The instructor is proud to beat 7% avg, MOOC completion rate. But enrollment for average MOOC is 40,000 meaning that even with 7% completion rate 2,800 people (vs. 109) normally complete challenging college-like courses vs. few-minutes-of-work tutorial.
