BIST-545-01 Quantitative Data Analysis and Reporting
Fall for 2017-2018
The goal of this course is to enhance students’ skills for identifying appropriate choices of statistical methodologies; and developing statistical approaches to applied research problems and effective communication of the approaches and findings. The course will give students hands on experience in statistical applications. The course will be organized around a series of case studies based on applied problems from different sources with a focus on application of statistical techniques as opposed to the subject matter of the data at hand. Students will formulate statistical approaches to the applied research problems; perform exploratory data analysis, model building and statistical inference; write reports, make oral presentations of results of analyses and interactively discuss analysis aspects of the case studies.
