FS 201 descriptions for Spring, 2014, are now available
New Course! Psychology 485, The Analysis of Data with Professor Hancock, has been added for Spring. Two sections are offered; each meets for the first seven weeks of the semester only. Section A1 meets TTh 11-12:15; Section A2 meets MW 3-4:15.
Description: A study that bridges the gap between a course or courses in statistics and the analysis of real data. Topics include: data documentation, data integrity, data structures, exploratory data analysis, outlier analysis, data transformation, power analysis, and the choice of statistical models based upon actual data. Dummy coding of variables for ANOVA and regression analysis are discussed; dummy coding of interactions in multiple regression is reviewed upon student demand. Students make extensive use of standard GUI statistical software and are introduced to the advantages and use of syntax editors that accompany GUI software. We also introduce a relatively user friendly power analysis program. Two semester credit hours. Prerequisite: permission of the instructor and one of the following courses: Psychology 207, Biology 385, Economics 202 or 203, Mathematics 345 or 346, or Political Science 489.
Time change. Section 31 of FS*102, Unveiling Masks of Diversity with Professor Epps, will meet MW 6-7:15 p.m. (formerly: TTh 6-7:15 p.m.)
