In partnership with the NIH Clinical Center's Biostatistics and Clinical Epidemiology Service (BCES), the NIH Library is offering a class geared to cover the general concepts behind common statistical tests. This two-part lecture series will help participants better understand and prepare data, interpret results and findings, design and prepare studies, and understand the results in published literature.
Part 1 will address considerations for the choice of statistical tests including the importance of study design and hypothesis, type of data and their distributions, and provide a brief review of important statistical features. During the class, time will be devoted to questions from attendees and references will be provided for in-depth self-study.
Although you may attend only one part of this series, attending both parts will give you a better understanding of the most used statistical tests in the biomedical literature. You must register separately for Part 2 of this class series.
