Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to:
- understand and explain the basics of statistical inference;
- use the basic testing procedures;
- operate the statistical software.
Learning outcomes
After graduation of the course student should be able to:
- distinguish between sample and population and properly interpret principles of inferential statistics
- determine statistical methods appropriate for particular application context
- solve tasks based on real data by means of sw. STATSTICA
- interpret properly outputs of analyses
  • - Normal as well as derived exact distributions (Pearson distribution, Student distribution, F distribution) and their properties; quantile tables.
  • - Law of large numbers, central limit theorem.
  • - Basic concepts of mathematical statistics; inductive statistics, random sampling, sample statistic.
  • - Point estimation and interval estimation of population parameters and parametric functions.
  • - Introduction to hypotheses testing.
  • - The statistical inferences based on a single sample from normal distribution.
  • - The statistical inferences based on two independent samples from the normal distribution.
  • - The statistical inferences based on one sample or two independent samples from Bernoulli (zero-one) distribution.

Teaching methods
Theoretical lectures; computer seminar sessions.
Assessment methods
The final grade is given by the score of the final test.
The requirements for taking the test are:
to be active at seminar sessions which are compulsory and to pass 2 Ropots.
Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam (credit test) by awarding grade "F" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
