A Critical Analysis of Null Hypothesis Testing and its Alternatives (Including Bayesian Analysis)

Tue 26 Feb, Tue 5 Mar 2019

Description

This course will provide a detailed critique of the methods and philosophy of the Null Hypothesis Significance Testing (NHST) approach to statistics which is currently dominant in social and biomedical science. We will briefly contrast NHST with alternatives, especially with Bayesian methods. We will use some computer code (Matlab and R) to demonstrate some issues. However, we will focus on the big picture rather on the implementation of specific procedures.

Target audience
  • University Students from Tier 1 Departments
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available here
Prerequisites
