1. Computer aided data analyses - introduction and principles of hierarchical data analysis. 2. Software for data analyses, data manipulation within MS-Windows. 3. Grafical features of statistical softwares - graphical presentation of continuous and cathegorial data, examples - model data files. 4. Exploratory and summary statistics - mean, median, confidence intervals, variance - calculations, presentation and interpretation. 5. Data distribution - graphical presentations (histograms, distribution functions), fitting to model distributions, testing of data normality. 6. One-sample testing (one- and two-tailed comparisons). 7. Two-samples comparisons (independent and dependent samples) - assumptions (normality, homogenity of variances) and testing. Parametric tests (independent and paired t-test), nonparametric tests (Mann-Whitney, median test, Wilcoxon test). 8. Introduction to parametric and neparametric corelation analysis. 9. Binomically distributed data - frequencies comparisons, chi-square and its applications, contingency tables. 10. Introduction to analysis of variance - assumptions, experimental design, calculations and results interpretations. 11. Analysis of model data -examples of complex data analysis (exploratory analysis, graphs and plots. 12. experimental design, hypotheses, selection of appropriate test, calculations and interpretations): two-sample testing, correlations, contingecy tables.
