Multiple linear regression is one of the most commonly used techniques in statistics and allows for the impact of multiple variables to be assessed simultaneously. The analysis of variance (ANOVA) is a related technique which allows the mean values of several groups to be compared. This course will equip participants with the skills necessary to undertake both types of analysis using free software, understand and interpret the output, check the assumptions that underpin each type of model, and present the results coherently.
By the end of this course the attendees will:
Understand what is meant by the term Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and the different ANOVA models available
Assess when it is appropriate to fit an analysis of variance
Interpret the result s of an analysis of variance
Assess model fit
Present the results of an analysis of variance
Understand what is meant by the term multiple linear regression
Assess when it is appropriate to fit a multiple linear regression model
Carry out a regression analysis using free software
Interpret the results of a multiple linear regression analysis
Assess model fit
Present the results of a multiple linear regression analysis
The morning will start with a brief recap on the concepts of hypothesis testing and choosing the right test. This will include the basic use of Jamovi software to carry out and interpret an independent t-test before progressing to the related technique ANOVA. Assumption checking, two-way ANOVA’s and interactions will conclude the morning.
The afternoon starts with correlation and simple linear regression to assess the relationship between two continuous variables before concentrating on multiple regression which allows multiple variables to be tested simultaneously. Both sessions will concentrate on producing and understanding outputs rather than mathematical content with regular exercises to reinforce learning.
This course is aimed at individuals who have some basic statistical knowledge and who wish to undertake analyses of quantitative data and who therefore wish to gain some insight into how to undertake these.
Basic statistical knowledge as the course is designed as a follow-on from our Basic Statistics course.
Delegates will need to download the latest version of Jamovi onto their laptop and bring this to the course as this will be used during the workshop: https://www.jamovi.org/download.html
