Winter 2023-2024 Sessional Lecturer Positions

Posted on Sept 1, 2023 | Application Deadline: Open until position filled


Course Description

The goal of the course is to enable students to build and evaluate statistical models for the analysis and interpretation of non-experimental data in the behavioural sciences. The focus is on methods of statistical modelling of data and practical decision-making, rather than on statistical theory per se.

Simple linear regression, multiple linear regression, and logistic regression are the main topics. SPSS, R, or some other common computational platform will be used.  Regression is a highly general and very flexible data analytic framework in which to examine phenomena in the behavioural sciences. It can be used to predict or to explain relationships between an outcome variable and predictors or explanatory variables of interest. Both continuous and categorical variables of the kind typically studied in psychology and education can be accommodated.

Students successfully completing this course should be able to comprehend the assumptions, limitations, and uses of correlational and regression analysis; build and interpret regression models for non-experimental study designs; evaluate publications and compose research reports incorporating correlational and regression analyses.
