- comprehend the basic ideas of statistical inference and data collection;
- determine the appropriate statistical procedure, given the description of the experiment, the research question and the type of data; - carry out the needed analyses for the discussed standard situations and interpret the results in terms of the problem;
- perform a hypothesis test for intercept or slope and check model assumptions of linear model;
- perform independently data analysis techniques with the computer package SPSS.
The course consists of:
- studying a handbook;
- (mandatory) practical work using SPSS.

- the computer practicals have to result in a pass;
- CAS: yes;
