A Research Ambassador will provide peer-to-peer support with understanding the different terminology used in quantitative methods. This workshop is for those who are new to quantitative statistics or who used these methods a long time ago. We will revisit the fundamental terminology using graphical representations and practical examples. Topics covered are:

  • Descriptive statistics
    • measure of central tendency
    • measure of dispersion
    • measure of position
  • Inferential statistics
  • Sample size
  • Level of significance
  • Study power

This workshop does not aim to familiarise you with any specific statistical software package (i.e. SPSS, SAS); a Research Ambassador will present you with a different way to look at statistics. For instance, have you ever wondered why we use a P value? And why we set it to 0.05? 

Come and we’ll show you!

This workshop is the first of a mini series of workshops on Statistics, next we will cover common tests (i.e. t-tests and ANOVA) and what they mean graphically.https://victoriauniversity.pageuppeople.com/learning/1434
