This intermediate statistics course is intended to give students familiarity with statistical tools used to analyze data in a variety of disciplines, including psychology, and provides experience reading and understanding studies based on data analysis. The focus is on understanding underlying concepts rather than on memorizing mathematical formulas. Students choose to use SPSS, R, or SAS to analyze data, and gain experience reading output and translating it into meaningful findings. Several sections are available each week, so that students have the option to learn how to use any or all of the above statistical programs. Students are only required to learn one program for analyzing data and reading output, however. The course covers linear and logistic regression, various types of ANOVA, as well as effect sizes and power analyses.
