Course Objectives By providing basic knowledge on the some inferential statistics topics such as sampling and sampling distributions, point and interval estimations, hypothesis testing, simple linear regression and analysis of variance, to enable the students to get objective decision within uncertain environments
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Upon completing the course, students are expected to; 1) have knowledge on the sampling and special sampling distributions, 2) be able to estimate the unknown population parameters by point and , 3) interval estimation techniques, 4) be able to test the hypothesis based on population parameters, 5) be able to use the goodness of fitting and independency tests on the data structure, 6) be able to apply simple linear regression and correlation analysis, 7) be able to use one way analysis of variance
Course Content Sampling and sampling distributions, Central Limit Theorem, point estimation, confidence interval, hypothesis testing, regression and correlation, variance analysis.
