This class will cover necessary skills for effective statistical
consulting, and focus on applications derived from real consulting
situations. Students will have the opportunity to engage with clients
and present the results of their consultations in class. Along the way
students will learn practical methods of data analysis, questions that
need to be considered for future studies, and ways of presenting data
for different purposes. An important part of the course will be the
attention on a real problem from Google, Inc. Sources of data will
include:

(1) IU's Statistics Consulting Center (Stephanie Dickinson, Michael
Trosset)

(2) Case studies (see textbook)

(3) Designing experiments for evaluating marketing strategies under
consideration at Google, Inc. (Dr. James Koehler, Senior Statistician)
