Aims and objectives

This unit introduces students to fundamental statistical areas of research design and linear models. It examines how multiple regression and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) can be used to analyse experimental and observational research using a variety of research designs.
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Apply and analyse data using multiple regression models
2. Interpret the results of multiple regression
3. Identify and explain the concepts of mediation and interaction (moderation) within multiple regression models
4. Apply and analyse data using analysis of variance (ANOVA) models
5. Explain the concept of interaction with ANOVA models and identify research problems where they can be usefully applied
6. Interpret results of ANOVA models
7. Interpret statistical analyses of data pertaining to theoretical and applied problems in psychology and health and write concise reports on the results of analyses in discipline-relevant style
