About this subject
Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:
- analyse data, and interpret and communicate results and conclusions, from a wide range of experimental designs;
- fit and interpret more complex statistical models, including the linear model; and
- build on and broaden their theoretical and technical knowledge of statistical terminology, concepts and methodology, which will enable them to read and critically appraise scientific literature with some confidence.
- Topics will be available to enrolled students in the subjects Learning Management System site approximately one week prior to the commencement of the teaching period.
Are you interested in developing and applying statistical models for the natural or social sciences? Do you want to learn more about the principles of designing a data collection? This subject will help you develop the core skills and knowledge needed for experimental designs and applied statistical models that are used in many scientific fields. Studying this subject, you will learn to develop and analyse various types of linear regression models which are the foundation of many statistical analyses. You will also explore some common experimental designs such as factorial design and randomised block design. Focusing on both the theoretical and technical aspects of key statistical concepts, topics include multiple linear regression with quantitative and qualitative explanatory variables, polynomial regression and generalised linear models.

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 22,000 students, UNE is an expert in online education.

Part of a degree
To enrol in this subject you must be accepted into one of the following degrees:
- UNE-DSC-DIP-2023 - Diploma in Science
- UNE-INF-DIP-2023 - Diploma in Information Technology
You must either have successfully completed the following subject(s) before starting this subject, or currently be enrolled in the following subject(s) in a prior study period; or enrol in the following subject(s) to study prior to this subject:
- UNE-SCI210-Introduction to Scientific Programming
- UNE-STAT100-Introduction to Statistical Modelling
- UNE-AMTH250-Computational Mathematics
Please note that your enrolment in this subject is conditional on successful completion of these prerequisite subject(s). If you study the prerequisite subject(s) in the study period immediately prior to studying this subject, your result for the prerequisite subject(s) will not be finalised prior to the close of enrolment. In this situation, should you not complete your prerequisite subject(s) successfully you should not continue with your enrolment in this subject. If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite subject(s) and believe you may not complete these all successfully, it is your responsibility to reschedule your study of this subject to give you time to re-attempt the prerequisite subject(s).
- Equipment requirements - Headphones or speakers (required to listen to lectures and other media). Headset, including microphone (highly recommended). Webcam (may be required for participation in virtual classrooms and/or media presentations).
- Software requirements - It is essential for students to have reliable internet access in order to participate in and complete your units, regardless of whether they contain an on campus attendance or intensive school component. Please refer students to link for requirements: http://www.une.edu.au/current-students/support/it-services/hardware
- Other requirements -
Textbook information is not available until approximately 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the Teaching period.
Students are expected to purchase prescribed material.
Textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
This is in the range of 10 to 12 hours of study each week.
Equivalent full time study load (EFTSL) is one way to calculate your study load. One (1.0) EFTSL is equivalent to a full-time study load for one year.
