Basic Statistics enables students to develop the capacity to carry out independent statistical analysis of data using a standard statistical software package and also aims to develop students’ abilities in effectively communicating the outcomes of statistical investigations.
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
- Effectively display information in datasets graphically.
- Select an appropriate descriptive or inferential statistical technique based on the researcher’s hypothesis, the level of measurement of the variables and testing of the appropriate assumptions to analyse the data.
- Select appropriate IBM SPSS Statistics procedures, Java applets on the web and mathematical calculations, to obtain basic statistical test results, including confidence intervals and effect size statistics.
- Explain the foundations of statistical inference, in particular the role of sampling distributions and the use of the normal distribution as a density curve.
- Recognize when more advanced techniques are needed.
- Write interpretive summary reports for both descriptive and inferential statistical analysis.
Software used: IBM SPSS Statistics Version 24
