Abstract

This course lasts for three years. The 1st year aims at beginners. This year starts from introductory topics (variable types, hypothesis testing, descriptive statistics) to working with some methods (chi-square, t-test, nonparametric statistics, one-way ANOVA, and linear regression). The course covers the building blocks of quantitative data analysis with the aim to train students to be informed producers and consumers of quantitative research. The applied part introduces working in R (RStudio) for calculations and reporting. Prerequisites: understanding key ideas in sampling theory and probabilities. This course is the starting point for social science and humanities students interested in pursuing training in advanced methods of data analysis or planning to use quantitative methods in their own research. The 2nd year aims at intermediate-level students. This year starts from introductory topics (data preparation, visualization, basic statistical tests) to working with more advanced methods of data analysis (interaction effects in linear regression, GLM, factor analysis). The course aims to develop quantitative data analysis skills required to understand and perform independent research. The applied part includes working in R (RStudio). Prerequisites: the students should have successfully passed the first year of the course or a course with equivalent program. The 3d year aims at upper-intermediate level students
