This is the culminating workshop for the Statistics for Advanced Level Science series. In this session, we will compare the application of different hypothesis tests and discuss how more than one type of statistical analysis may be appropriate for the same set of data. We will look for the key components of research questions or data sets that indicate choices for analysis and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each. In teams, we will collaborate to create a dichotomous key for choosing an appropriate method so you have a guiding diagram to consult when you are advising your own students. It is suggested that you take the Part 5-7 workshops or are comfortable with the methods of hypothesis testing covered in the previous workshops so you can participate fully.
This 1.5-hour workshop is open to science and math teachers of all grade levels and is particularly relevant for teachers of AP or IB science courses and any class that includes independent research.
