1. Drawing Conclusions from Sample Surveys
In this lesson, we look at a fictitious survey and show how to draw conclusions based on several criteria. Being able to discern the criteria of a good survey allows valid conclusions to follow the statistical analysis.
2. Drawing Logical Conclusions from Experimental Data
Experimental results are what scientists like to share with each other, but it's important to understand what those data mean. We do this in the final step of the experimental process, when we draw meaningful conclusions from the results we obtained.
3. Observational Study in Statistics: Definition & Examples
In this lesson, we will learn what an observational study is and look at some examples of such a study. We will also discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages of this type of study.
