The University of New England is the only Australian public university to be awarded the maximum 5 stars for Overall Experience by the Good Universities Guide, 13 years in a row. UNE has delivered distance education since 1955—that’s longer than any other Australian university. Perhaps that’s why students continue to rate UNE so highly for student satisfaction and teaching quality. With over 170 degrees offered online, and more than 20,000 online students, UNE is the expert in online education.

Many advances in modern science, ranging from livestock experiments to analysis of Martian soils, rely on statistical methods that link observation or experiment to a better understanding of how complex systems work. In this introductory subject, students both develop statistical literacy and learn how to present and interpret data for a common set of statistical models.
Topics include exploratory data analysis, randomness associated with experiment data, statistical modelling, sampling, probability, regression, analysis of variance, and tests of significance. Statistical computing forms an integral part of the subject. The R statistical software will be supplied.
Online students should have access to freeware statistical packages R and RStudio. Online assessment may require RStudio statistical software use and calculations. The best six online assessments and both written assessments count towards the final grade. Both of the written assessments must be submitted. Must obtain at least 40% overall for the assessments. Final Examination: 2 hrs 15 mins duration. Relates to Learning Outcomes: 1-5 UNE manages supervised exams associated with your UNE subjects. Prior to census date, UNE releases exam timetables.
