You will utilise a robust approach to statistical analysis, a skill highly valued by employers and researchers.
Lectures provide context, background and step-by step guidance on how to conduct and interpret a selection of statistical analyses.
Through a series of exercises, you learn to explore data, to specify appropriate linear models for your research question and to interpret their results.
A set of online tests structured around the exercises and the lecture content allow you to demonstrate your achievement of course learning outcomes.
With a group of students, you complete tasks and strengthen your understanding of applications of statistics.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
Review of basics of data exploration and descriptive statistics; interpretation of p-values and approaches to assessing normality; one and two-way analysis of variance, examining assumptions and interactions; introduction to linear modelling with categorical and continuous predictors; good practice in relation to presenting statistical results and producing reproducible research.
The course extends the learning from BI2018 by reinforcing basic principles and introducing statistical modelling.
