The course takes the participants through the basic theory of frequentist statistics: random variables, the sampling distribution, Type I, II, S, M errors, t-tests, linear models, and linear mixed models.

Prerequisites

I am assuming that the students have used R and have done some data analysis using R.

Please install the following software before coming to the course

We will be using R,
and RStudio,
so make sure you install these on your computer.

Outcomes

After completing this course, the participant will have become familiar with the basic ideas behind frequentist methods. They will be able to carry out and interpret the results of the following statistical tests: t-tests, hypothesis tests using linear models and linear mixed models.
