Statistical Fundamentals: A Visual Approach Workshop Series—Visualizing Errors and Common Pitfalls
February 8 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
This session will address the visualization of standard deviation (s.d.), standard error of the mean (s.e.m.), and confidence interval (CI) error bars to enhance the understanding of uncertainty in data analysis. The interpretation of error bars for statistical significance will be discussed, along with common misinterpretations to avoid.
By the end of the session, participants should be able to visualize and interpret error bars, understand the implications of their spacing and width, and be cautious of common pitfalls such as misinterpreting non-overlapping error bars as evidence of significance.
This workshop qualifies for the Scholarly Research, Writing, and Publishing Credential offered through the College of Graduate Studies.
Statistical Fundamentals: A Visual Approach Workshop Series
This series will use R and Python to help develop an intuition for fundamental statistical concepts using data visualization. These workshops are equally suitable to those hoping to enhance their ability to interpret common statistical tests and concepts as it is for those applying statistical modelling to their work. No background in statistics is required, but some familiarity with R or Python will be advantageous.
You can either register for the whole series, or register for individual workshops that are most applicable to you.
