Have you begin to read research, but you’re swamped in a sea of statistics? Are you trying to make sense of a study, but you don’t know your odds ratio from your confidence interval? You’re in luck! This program takes you through many of the basic statistical concepts found in today’s research and focuses more on the meaning than the math and gets to the bottom line.
