On completion of this module, a student should be able to:
explain the rationale behind, and the underlying theory of, the analysis of variance;
explain the issues that arise in extending regression from one predictor variable to two;
carry out appropriate analyses and draw conclusions.
This module covers the theory of some of the most commonly used statistical techniques - regression and the analysis of variance. It also includes practical application of these important techniques.
This module will provide a thorough grounding in the basic theory associated with some important statistical models.
1. THE ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE: One way and two way classification. Models. Estimators, confidence intervals and tests. Residuals and fitted values. Checking assumptions. Interpretation of analyses. Contrasts. Interactions. Transformation of data.
2. BIVARIATE REGRESSION: Least Squares estimators. Comparison with one predictor. Interpretation of sequential sums of squares. Standardised residuals.
