KATHMANDU UNIVERSITY, School of Science, Department of Natural Sciences Announces
"Five-day Training Program on Data Analysis and Statistical Interpretation Using Computer Software."
We are building foundations of data analysis and statistical interpretation using computer software. Each class provides an in-depth look at a particular topic or set of topics related to data analysis, data modeling, statistics and probability. Participants will learn through practical applications. They are welcomed and encouraged to use challenges from their own research problems as learning tools during class discussions. Valuable tips and insights needed for the analysis of research data with the help of computer software will be given. A detailed manual illustrating all the steps will also be provided.
Course Outline: This course gives an overview of various statistical tools used in descriptive and inferential statistics with the help of computer software. The students will be geared to deal with research problems ranging from effective collection and presentation of data to efficient and accurate analysis and interpretation. Design of experiments, correlation, regression and hypothesis testing are important constituents of research methodology. These along with several other topics will be dealt with in detail. The students will also have an orientation on data analysis with the help of computer software such as SPSS and spreadsheets such as EXCEL, especially designed for statistical analysis. A detailed manual illustrating all the steps of statistical analysis and its correct interpretation will also be provided.
