This article focuses on an analysis of lifelong learning results carried out at the Police Academy of the Czech Republic. The analyzed data were obtained by way of questionnaires whose respondents were graduates of courses in the period 2012/2013; 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 years. Absolute and relative percent occurrences of categorized data of 2014/2015 period were obtained through a descriptive statistical analysis. Evaluation of single courses of the particular period of 2013/2014 years within the achieved points of the total average weighted score was carried out with the use of the regression tree. The experimental presumption on a better evaluation of crucial features of evaluated courses of 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 periods in comparison with the previous 2012/2013 period was tested by way of use of Coeficient ?, Goodman-Kruskal tau and index effect size (Cohen’s w and d).
Key words: lifelong learning courses, regression tree, effect size, coeficient ?, Goodman-Kruskal tau, Cohen’s “w” a “d”
