Course Description

The goal of this course is to introduce the advanced statistical methods such as ANOVA, ANCOVA or regression analysis. The course is designed to give a thorough overview of each method and the examples of the studies where this method can or cannot be applied. The students will continue learning the concepts of quantitative analysis by defining and calculating correlations, variance, covariance, and other concepts. The students will enhance their knowledge of sampling by working with groups and interpreting the between-group and within-group effects. They will use SPSS and other tools to prepare the data, run the tests and interpret the test results. Finally, the students will use their knowledge of quantitative methods both in designing their own research and in reviewing the research methodology used by others. 3 Credits
