 Content
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } This course introduces inferential statistics (i.e. tests and confidence intervals). Concepts from inductive statistics are discussed on the basis of conclusions concerning an average with a known population standard deviation (i.e., z test). Additionally, several popularly used statistical techniques are treated: t-tests (both independent and dependent), binomial tests (both for a single proportion and two proportions), and chi-squared tests of independence. Also several popularly used (more advanced) statistical techniques are addressed: simple linear regression, multiple linear regression, one-way and two-way analysis of variance (one-way ANOVA and two-way ANOVA), and nonparametric tests. During the in-class computer exercises, students are taught analysing small and greater data files using the IBM SPSS statistical programme.
