Statistical Consulting Center
Observing Consulting Sessions
The goal of this course is to develop in each student the skills necessary for being a statistical consultant. Students who wish to observe a consulting session are required to first review the current scheduled appointments on the SCC google calendar before requesting to be invited. Note your GVSU email gives you access to Google calendar since it is essentially a Gmail address. [To access SCC calendar : Click to view the calendar on your Gmail , under "Other Calendars" click "Add a friend's Calendar" (firstname.lastname@example.org)]
A maximum of 2 students are allowed to observe any given session. Requests are processed on a " First Come - First Serve" basis and are indicated on the calendar by first initial, last initial, observation number. For example SO#1 on the google calendar indicates that SO has been scheduled to his/her first observation. To make your request, use this link: Consulting Session Observation Request FORM.
Besides having your initials posted on the google calendar as a reminder, an email notification to invite you to attend will have a brief description of what the client is requesting assistance with. Please note that at the end of the semester your instructor will be provided with the data (downloaded using: http://www.gcal2excel.com/) to verify which sessions you attended.
