This course highlights fundamentals of sampling and data analysis, as well as various bivariate and multivariate methods of detecting statistical relationships between two or more variables. It is a follow-up course to STA 250 and other research courses, building upon what has been learned in the prerequisite courses. The main objectives of this course are to provide fundamental hands-on knowledge that will allow students to apply basic statistical methods to analyze quantitative data sets, to work with a statistical software package (i.e., SPSS), and to develop a research paper. Through practical instruction, this course teaches students advanced statistical techniques and prepares them for research positions as well as work in data analysis.
