This unit builds on the skills acquired in STA102 (STA15). After some brief revision of t-tests and correlation, students will be introduced to the concept of interaction, and to the analysis of variance. The analysis of variance enables analysis of more complex and interesting experimental designs. It is assumed that students will already have a working knowledge of inferential statistics and be familiar with the statistical software package SPSS, before commencing this unit.
Please note: Assessment values are indicative only; details will be advised at the start of the unit. As the unit builds on the skills developed in STA102, this pre-requisite is strictly enforced.
