Course Description

Statistics (STA) 649 is an introduction to the principles of experimental design. Many statistics courses are taught from the perspective of analyzing data that has already been collected. However, problems that occur at the analysis stage (e.g., violations of assumptions, too small of sample, etc.) could have been avoided if the experimenter had consulted a statistician before the experiment was conducted and the data collected. This course will introduce common experimental designs so that when the data are collected, the aforementioned shortcomings are avoided. The course will provide equal treatment to both the conceptualization of the designs and the analysis of the subsequent experiment.
