## Course Description

Hypothesis testing lets you answer questions about your datasets in a statistically rigorous way. In this course, you'll grow your Python analytical skills as you learn how and when to use common tests like t-tests, proportion tests, and chi-square tests. Working with real-world data, including Stack Overflow user feedback and supply-chain data for medical supply shipments, you'll gain a deep understanding of how these tests work and the key assumptions that underpin them. You'll also discover how non-parametric tests can be used to go beyond the limitations of traditional hypothesis tests.

### Introduction to Hypothesis Testing

**Free**How does hypothesis testing work and what problems can it solve? To find out, you’ll walk through the workflow for a one sample proportion test. In doing so, you'll encounter important concepts like z-scores, p-values, and false negative and false positive errors.

### Two-Sample and ANOVA Tests

In this chapter, you’ll learn how to test for differences in means between two groups using t-tests and extend this to more than two groups using ANOVA and pairwise t-tests.

### Proportion Tests

Now it’s time to test for differences in proportions between two groups using proportion tests. Through hands-on exercises, you’ll extend your proportion tests to more than two groups with chi-square independence tests, and return to the one sample case with chi-square goodness of fit tests.

### Non-Parametric Tests

Finally, it’s time to learn about the assumptions made by parametric hypothesis tests, and see how non-parametric tests can be used when those assumptions aren't met.

it gave a since to some previous courses like hypothesis testing and all the info about statics. anyhow, it'd be good to further clarify the purpose and how to invest in these tools.

- Peter O.7 days
Great content and the speaker was quite knowledgeable

- Anisa B.28 days
Very necessary this topic and it was very thoroughly constructed! I enjoyed working on it and getting to learn so many testing ways and where to use each of them.

- abhishek d.30 days
Explains statistics behind hypothesis testing effectively. Data professionals do not find this topic interesting. Course makes it interesting to grasp the concepts with practice examples. I recommend this course to everyone along with some conceptual reading on inferential statistics

Great summary of the fundamental statistical concept.
