ORES 512: Practical Applications of Statistical Methods

This course aims to advance the student's skills in study design, data analysis, scientific writing, and presentation/communication. This will be realized by through a series of one-hour technical skill workshops, two-hour peer review sessions and series of consultation appointments. All activities are organized around the student's selected research project. The workshops will include a take-home assignment to recap key teaching points and assess skill competency. Students will engage in peer review and critique as part of this course. Each student will be paired with a statistics consultant to support analytic method selection, design a data management plan, and verify calculations. They will have access to this consultant for one additional semester after the end of this course. This course will be graded as pass/fail with students earning a pass if they attend all workshops and peer review sessions, attend meetings with their consultant as needed, and show progress on the steps to completing their thesis.


Higher purpose. Greater good.
