Your Statistical Toolbelt

Tues, February 26, 2013, 2:30 - 4, Ballentine 006

Instructor: Stephanie Dickinson, Senior Consultant, ISCC

This workshop will give an overview of how to identify what types of data analysis tools to use for a project. We will walk through a map of the most common analysis tools (ANOVA, Regression, Chi-square, etc), and how they should be selected based on the type of data and the types of research questions you have.

We will not work through analyses together for this workshop, and are thereore not using a computer lab. Rather we will discuss more broadly "what analysis to use when" to give the bigger picture of the world of statistics.

This workshop has no specific prerequisites as we are starting at a "beginner's" level, but some basic background in statistics (one course, or some limited experience using/reading data) will be helpful.

No registration. All ISCC workshops are now FREE on a first-come, first-served basis. (Lab holds 50 seats)
