1. How to Calculate Simple Conditional Probabilities
Conditional probability refers to the probability that an event will occur provided a previous event occurs. Learn about simple conditional probabilities and how to calculate them. Explore dependent events, understand how they differ from conditional probabilities, and review conditional probability examples.
2. Probability of Simple, Compound and Complementary Events
Probability can be calculated for simple, compound, and complementary events. Explore each type of event, understand how each event differs from the other types, and learn how to calculate each type of event's probability by reviewing examples.
3. Probability of Independent and Dependent Events
Probability is a ratio that predicts the likelihood an event will occur. Explore the concept of probability and understand the difference between independent and dependent events. Learn how to calculate the probability of both independent and dependent events, and review examples.
4. Samples & Populations in Research: Definition
The two groupings of participants in research are population, the entire collection, and sample, a portion of the population. Learn about these concepts, as well as how data from each can represent sets of participants differently.
5. The Relationship Between Population, Sample & Generalizability
Representing a population accurately in a sample is the best way to increase generalizability in study results. Learn about increasing generalizability in a sample with sampling procedures, sample sizes, and participation rates.
