Unit 2: Statistical Inference
Course Content: Parametric tests, Analysis of Variance, two way ANOVA, multi way ANOVA, non-parametric tests,
This unit provides learners with an in-depth understanding of statistical distribution and hypothesis testing. Statistical distributions include Binomial, Poisson, Normal, Log Normal, Exponential, t, F and Chi Square. Parametric and non-parametric tests used in research problems are covered in this unit. The unit will help learners to formulate research hypotheses, select appropriate tests of hypothesis, write mainly R programs to perform hypothesis testing and to draw inferences using the output generated. Learners will also study planned experiments as part of the unit.
