4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Course Description and Teaching Methodology

Teaching sessions are structure in theoretical and practical sessions.

In the theoretical sessions, the masterclass will be used to introduce the essential concepts with the support of different materials edited for that purpose (notes, sides and practical examples obtained from the manuals indicated in the Booklist section) that will be accessible through the ILIAS teaching-learning platform.

During the practical sessions, proposed exercises related to the theoretical contents will be solved writing upon the board and/or using a statistical software (Statgraphics, SPSS and/or R). The list of proposed exercises should be solve by the students and exposed in class to the rest of the students for further study.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

  2.   A test to assess the acquired ability with the statistical software and the capability of the student to select the appropriated method and provide accurate conclusions (20%). The qualification obtained in this part in the 2 nd ordinary call, may be saved for extraordinary calls. If someone decides to repeat this exam in the extraordinary calls, the mark obtained in it will be final mark in this part.
