What you will gain from this workshop
The aim of the course is to give you confidence in both understanding and questioning the presentation of statistical results.
A curiosity about statistics and a job role that involves reporting statistical results to colleagues or clients.
This workshop discusses common problems and issues in explaining statistical results. The main focus is on the correct use and interpretation of statistical significance and discussion of alternative performance metrics, particularly with reference to “big data”. The workshop is built around output from typical statistics software packages and group discussions.
We can customise the module content to meet specific requirements.
