Overview Overview

This course aims to give researchers an understanding of the principles of statistical design and analysis and their relevance to research in a range of scientific disciplines.

It covers some probability and statistical methods, mainly through examples. This training contains around 30% of lectures, 70% of guided quizzes and labs.

In the case of closed course we can tailor the examples and materials to a specific branch (like psychology tests, public sector, biology, genetics, etc...)

In the case of public courses, mixed examples are used.

Though various software is used during this course (Microsoft Excel to SPSS, Statgraphics, etc...) its main focus is on understanding principles and processes guiding research, reasoning and conclusion.

This course can be delivered as a blended course i.e. with homework and assignments.
