Course objectives
The aim of the course is to teach students
perform exploratory analysis of one-dimensional and multidimensional data;
use parametric and nonparametric tests of one, two or more populations;
analyze data dependencies;
perform goodness–of-fit tests.
Learning outcomes
At the end of this course, students
will have a good knowledge of STATISTICA system;
would be able to describe real data sets using tables, statistical graphs and numerical characteristics;
would be able to testing statistical hypothesis using parametrics and nonparametrics tests.
  • Exploratory data analysis: table of frequencies, contingency tables, functional and numerical characteristics of the data set, diagnostic graphs.
  • Tests for normal distribution parameters: t-test, paired samples t-test, two-tailed-test, F-test, one-way ANOVA.
  • Nonparametric Statistics: rank and rank Statistics, Wilcoxon and sign test, Kruskal - Wallis and median test.
  • Goodness-of-fit tests: Kolmogorov's - Smirnov test, Liliefors test, chi-square test
  • Tests of hypotheses on independence in multivariate samples: Pearson's correlation coefficient and its testing, Spearman's correlation coefficient, analysis of contingency tables.

Teaching methods
The weekly class schedule consists of 2 hour lecture and 2 hours of class exercises with special statistical software STATISTICA in computer classroom.
Assessment methods
During the semester, students write two tests. The examination is written with "open book" and is complemented by practical computer aided data analysis. The examination is scored 100 points. To successfully pass the exam, 51 points will suffice.
