Course: Quantitative Analysis
3 - 7
Location: Lafayette Library & Learning Center, Lafayette
Instructor: Gary DeWeese, MAI
This course focuses on 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.
Central goals of the course include showing participants how to understand the reliability and validity of data used to draw conclusions, providing the knowledge needed to support the conclusions others may draw from the same or similar datasets. Presentation and activities make extensive use of real-world appraisal applications and are aimed at furthering an appraiser’s ability to provide credible analysis of real property-related issues.

Seminar: Stats, Graphs and Data Science - Part I
10 - 11
Location: San Jose
Seminar Developer & Instructor: George Dell, MAI, SRA, ASA, CRE
This hands-on workshop introduces and exploits “big data” tools, computation, and predictive methods for valuation. It emphasizes applied solution-based learning, using real data, for objective evidence-based results. Data science results are simpler, more useful, and intuitively sensible.
The intent of this seminar is that students leave with these immediately useful skills:
Open-source analytics software is provided, as well as example data sets and templates for use in form and narrative reporting. The use of these tools is particularly useful for sparse-data appraisal problems through the support of location (spatial), and price indexing (time) adjustments. Local commercial and/or residential data sets are used in presented examples
This course is prerequisite to intermediate and advanced courses offered by Valuemetrics.info education, leading to auditable valuation practices.
