Course Description: Advanced conceptual and applied use of statistical techniques. Students review assumptions underlying specific approaches, perform and interpret output from analyses completed using statistical software, determine appropriate statistical approach to answer defined research questions relevant to nursing, and apply ANOVA and multiple regression models. Course Objectives: 1) Identify kinds of research, variables and appropriate inferences in studies involving analysis of variance, multiple regression and other advanced statistical procedures. 2) Analyze data and interpret results from fixed-effects and mixed-effects analysis of variance, multiple regression and other advanced statistics. 3) Assess measurement issues (reliability, construct validity, etc.) as they apply to nursing research reported in journal articles. 4) Choose alternative analysis after identifying violations of assumptions for various statistical procedures (e.g., repeated measures ANOVA, analysis of covariance). 5) Estimate effect size and calculate sample size to obtain sufficient power for certain statistical procedures. 6) Critique the design and analysis reported in published research studies.
