Learning Objectives

Acquisition of the theoretical knowledge and of the practical skills at the basis of the main data analysis techniques . At the end of the course , the student will be able to recognize which statistical approach has to be adopted in specific contexts and to comment on the results of these analyses .

Program

The program is divided into 13 topics : 1 . introduction and rkey concepts : measurement scales , indicators of central tendency , variability indicators , graphical methods for the exploration of data (lecture 1-2) 2 . simple regression (lecture 3-4). 3 multiple regression (lecture 5-6). 4. Comparing Means : t - test  5 (lecture 7). Comparing Means : one-way ANOVA (lecture 7) 6. General linear model: factorial ANOVA between- subjects (lecture 8) 7 . Post- Hoc Comparisons: the problem of multiple comparisons and of statistical power (lecture 9). 8 General Linear Model: Model Assumptions (lecture 10) 9. Nonparametric tests (lecture 11) 10 . Factor analysis 11 (lecture 12-13-14). Subject assessment: assessment tools , reliability and validity (lecture 15-16) 12 .

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The student must show that he has

- Knowledge and understanding of the fundamental concepts of hypothesis verification and statistical tests in the theoretical framework of the general linear model

- Applied knowledge and understanding: acquired the ability to recognize which statistical approach to use in different practical contexts

- Making judgements: Acquired the ability to use knowledge and concepts for describing the results of the main statistics used in the psychological field

- Communication skills: acquired specific lexicon for the description of psychometric results

- Learning Skills: At the completion of the course students will have gained a good degree of autonomy in reading the materials related to the validation of psychometric tests and in the critical understanding of the adequacy of the statistical analyzes reported in the psychological research.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

There are 5 practical lessons (using the PC) to illustrate

1) How to build a database for psychological research?

2) How to perform the statistical analyses described in the front lessons

3) How the results of these analyses should be read and reported

Practical lessons are essential for passing exams

In addition, a seminar is planned for the practical demonstration of the psychophysiological testing and correction of neuropsychological tests.
