SUMMARY:LISA Statistics Short Course: Designing Experiments
DESCRIPTION:
LISA SHORT COURSES IN STATISTICS\n
LISA (Virginia
Tech's Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical
Analysis) is providing a series of
evening short courses to help graduate students
use statistics in their research. The focus
of these two-hour courses is on teaching practical
statistical techniques for analyzing
or collecting data. See www.lisa.stat.vt.edu/?q=short_courses
for instructions on how to
REGISTER and to learn more.\n

Title:
Designing Experiments;\n
\n
Well-designed
experiments can help researchers of
all disciplines obtain results that are informative,
efficient, and easy to analyze. Open-source
data sets (through Minitab) will be utilized
to demonstrate several useful techniques,
designs, and methods of analysis for use
in a variety of subjects. Researchers and students
from all departments and levels of statistical
experience are welcome. \n
\n
Course Topics\n
The
Designing Experiments Short Course
will focus on the following key topics:\n
1)
Basics of observational studies and experiments:
correlation, causation, and variation\n
2)
Fundamental principles of experimental design:
randomization, replication, and blocking\n
3) Common experimental designs and their analyses:
one-way and two-way layouts, randomized
block design, ANOVA, and split plot design\n
