8 hours / 1 day
9am – 6pm, Wednesday & Thursday
Mode of Training:
This course aims to equip participants with essential understanding of the main statistical concepts in nonparametric statistics. The course helps participants to appreciate and understand a broad spectrum of concepts and techniques used in nonparametric statistical analyses.
Course Learning Outcomes
Participants will learn statistical analysis techniques designed for nonparametric data, apply and interpret such techniques and the associated outcomes. The course will cover rank-based methods to test hypotheses on i) the single sample problem, ii) the two-independent sample problem, iii) the paired sample problem, iv) comparison of more than two treatment procedures and v) randomised complete block designs. The learning will be aided with hands-on sessions, where the participants will apply the skills learnt on datasets, which may not assume parametric structures.
Throughout the course, the participants will use Minitab (Version 18) as the software base to apply the concepts learnt to analyse data.
