In this session, we will traverse into the realm of inferential statistics, beginning with correlation and reliability. We will present a brief conceptual overview and the R procedures for computing reliability and correlation (Pearson’s r, Spearman’s Rho and Kendall’s tau) in real world datasets. Learning Outcomes: Obtain inferential statistics and assess data normality Manipulate data and create graphs Perform Chi-Square tests (Goodness of Fit test and Test of Independence) Perform correlations on continuous and categorical data (Pearson’s r, Spearman’s Rho and Kendall’s tau) Prerequisites This course assumes familiarity with R and RStudio. You should have a good understanding of R syntax and basic programming concepts, as well as familiarity with data manipulation (dplyr) and visualisation (ggplot2 package). Please consider attending Intersect’s following courses to get up to speed: Learn to Program: R Data Manipulation and Visualisation in R For more information about prerequisites and this course, please visit the course page on our website. Target Audience and Expectation This Introductory training is designed for researchers and students who have had little to no formal training in statistics. The session focuses on the practical implementation; basic conceptual understanding and interpretation of the relevant methods and their corresponding outputs, with little emphasis on theory.
