This course is designed to help graduate students develop competence in understanding and applying statistical methods for the behavioral and social sciences. The course introduces broad historically based topics in statistics such as probability theory, the Law of Large Numbers, and the Central Limit Theorem to develop conceptually based models for hypothesis testing, description of data, and statistical inference. Emphasis is placed on the evaluation and interpretation of statistical methods used in published research and the development of analytic models in dissertation research.
