Course Goals The goals of the course are to provide you with the opportunity, support, help, teaching, clarification, feedback, and encouragement for you to accomplish the following: understanding the basic concepts of descriptive and inferential statistics; demonstrating competence in a variety of basic statistical skills; and using computer software to obtain basic descriptive statistics for sets of data and to perform some of the basic statistical tests involved in statistical inference. One set of skills to be acquired will involve perceptual recognition of formulas, graphs, and tables, verbal comprehension of concepts, and the ability to distinguish between similar ideas, formulas, etc. which have important differences between them. A second set will be production skills where you will be expected to be able to produce definitions and formulas, compute numerical values needed for statistical analysis, be familiar with important tables or produce tables showing the results of analysis, and to know how to read and produce various graphs that show the results of statistical computations. You will also become familiar with some of the web sites available for performing statistical computations and clarifying the meaning of important statistical concepts. You will also begin to be prepared to use this knowledge in your future activities as a psychology student and beyond.
