Learning Objectives

The course aims to give students a methodological training and basic statistics,  not separated from the acquisition of an operational capability in the face of real problems

Program

1. Outline of probability.  2. Population and sample.  3. Measuring scale variables.  4. Main indices of position (arithmetic mean, median and mode)  and dispersion (variation range, variance, standard deviation, coefficient of variation,  quartiles, interquartile range).  5. bivariate statistics: regression and correlation.  6. Main distributions: Binomial, Poisson, Gaussian.  7. The sampling distributions: distribution of the sample mean and t-distribution.  8. Test: the z test; the Student t test (for one and two samples).  9. Confidence intervals for the means and proportions.  10. Anova and nonparametric statistics  11. The scientific method and unscientific methods  12. The research protocol  13. The rationale  14. The literature search  15. Randomization  16. Blindness  17. Experimental design  18. Sample size  19. Assessment tools and their properties: reliability, validity, responsiveness, least significant difference, sensitivity and specificity  20. Deviations from the protocol and their treatment  21. Critical reading a scientific paper
