Course Description

Implement Experimental Design Setups

Learn how to implement the most appropriate experimental design setup for your use case. Learn about how randomized block designs and factorial designs can be implemented to measure treatment effects and draw valid and precise conclusions.

Conduct Statistical Analyses on Experimental Data

Deep-dive into performing statistical analyses on experimental data, including selecting and conducting statistical tests, including t-tests, ANOVA tests, and chi-square tests of association. Conduct post-hoc analysis following ANOVA tests to discover precisely which pairwise comparisons are significantly different.

Conduct Power Analysis

Learn to measure the effect size to determine the amount by which groups differ, beyond being significantly different. Conduct a power analysis using an assumed effect size to determine the minimum sample size required to obtain a required statistical power. Use Cohen's d formulation to measure the effect size for some sample data, and test whether the effect size assumptions used in the power analysis were accurate.

Address Complexities in Experimental Data

Extract insights from complex experimental data and learn best practices for communicating findings to different stakeholders. Address complexities such as interactions, heteroscedasticity, and confounding in experimental data to improve the validity of your conclusions. When data doesn't meet the assumptions of parametric tests, you'll learn to choose and implement an appropriate nonparametric test.

    Experimental Design Preliminaries

    Free

    Building knowledge in experimental design allows you to test hypotheses with best-practice analytical tools and quantify the risk of your work. You’ll begin your journey by setting the foundations of what experimental design is and different experimental design setups such as blocking and stratification. You’ll then learn and apply visual and analytical tests for normality in experimental data.
