Statistical testing - 1 hour
Data analysis tools can be grouped into several categories, each category aiming at answering a certain type of question associated to a certain type of data. Statistical tests allow to take decisions on rejecting or not predefined hypotheses. This webinar presents the principles of statistical testing, with demos using the XLSTAT data analysis software.
- Principles of statistical testing: hypotheses, risk thresholds, p-value
- Parametric vs non parametric testing
- Independent vs paired samples
- XLSTAT demo : comparison tests (Student’s t-test...)
- XLSTAT demo : association tests (Chi-Square and Pearson’s correlation)
- Which Statistical Test should you choose?
Senior statistics consultant
Jean-Paul Maalouf is a senior statistics consultant who joined the Addinsoft team in 2014. He holds a PhD in biology and has extensive experience in teaching statistics, which he has been doing intensively since 2012. He has taught at the largest French research institutions (INRA, CNRS, INSERM, CIRAD, several universities), as well as at private companies around the world. His teaching methods are based on a conceptual approach and are more focused on concrete examples than on the explanation of complex mathematical formulas. The concepts are thus easily grasped by people who do not necessarily have a background in mathematics but wish to become quickly operational in the field of data analysis.
