SOCR: Statistics Online Computational Resource

In terms of selecting a statistical test, the most important question is "what is the main study hypothesis?" In some cases there is no hypothesis; the investigator just wants to "see what is there". For example, in a prevalence study there is no hypothesis to test, and the size of the study is determined by how accurately the investigator wants to determine the prevalence. If there is no hypothesis, then there is no statistical test. It is important to decide a priori which hypotheses are confirmatory (that is, are testing some presupposed relationship), and which are exploratory (are suggested by the data). No single study can support a whole series of hypotheses.

A great collection of data visualisation tools, categorised by the characteristics of the data you want to show.

Rappresentare: raccontare la realtà in modo tale da attrarre in modo efficace l'attenzione del nostro interlocutore/lettore. In una società iperconnessa e dialogica, fondamentale competenza.

Cori Zuppo's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:21 AM

The Data Visualization Catalogue is a powerful tool to guide selection of data visualization methodologies. I am looking forward to incorporating this resource into my courses wherever possible.

Research Designs - Part 2

Relationships research questions are the final category of research questions. These are questions that concern prediction, i.e., can we predict variable X from variable Y? A relationships question would be: Is the relationship between diet and heart disease strong enough that we can predict the onset of heart disease from a knowledge of diet? This type of research question leads to correlation/regression designs. Correlation/regression designs are ex post facto designs because while we may define IVs we do not manipulate them. We do not manipulate the IV because we gather all the data at one time, hence there is no time to manipulate the IV. These designs are similar to observational studies except that we hypothesize a correlation between variables, rather than simple descriptions.
