Students in this course improve their capability to deal with complex datasets,choosing the appropriate technique to obtain, understand, interpret, integrate,analyze and conclude upon substantive theoretical grounds. Methods based on bothunidimensional and multidimensional data will be developed.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
Understand the nature of different datasets and the respective statisticaltreatments;
Understand and criticize the methodological approaches of articles writtenin scientific journals;
Apply the appropriate method to the available dataset; and
Master the use of statistical package to solve data analyzes problems.
The course will be taught in thirteen weekly meetings. The meetings will be eitherin classroom or lab, depending on the nature of subject to be taught. As a parallelactivity, students will be encouraged to use a statistical package in order to solvethe exercises. Both
will be available to students in the 3
