Learning Outcomes
Students are expected uppon the succesive completion of the course: • To understand the fundamental principles of statistics • Be able to organize and summarize data numerically and graphically (data and variable categories, measurement scales, histograms, tables, center trend and scatter indicators, frequency distribution description, distribution types) • To demonstrate the ability to examine the relationship between quantitative data (bar charts, direction and strength of correlation, relationship and cause differences, linear regression) • To understand the link between probability and statistical inference(experimental and null hypotheses, testing and interpretation of null hypothesis) • To decide which statistical test to use to examine the relationship between quantitative data, to create a simple regression equation, and to compare the means of two samples: t-test). • Be able to conduct basic statistical tests using software (descriptive statistics, correlation, regression, comparison of two samples) and interpretate the results. • To apply the knowledge acquired in the course through their projects.

Student Assessment
Description
The final grade is based on the grades achieved in the final examination. The examination consists partly of multiple choice questions and partly on short-answer questions. Detailed instructions are given to the students at the beginning of the semester in the course outline and in the Depertmrnt's Assignment Manual. Students must achieve at least 50 per cent on the final examination in order to pass the course. During the semester students are able to self-evaluate their understanding on the course material by taking short quizzes.
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Exam with Multiple Choice Questions (Formative, Summative)
  • Written Exam with Short Answer Questions (Formative, Summative)
  • Written Exam with Problem Solving (Formative, Summative)
