STA3300 Experimental Design

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Sciences
School or Department : Maths and Computing
Version produced : 21 July 2014


Pre-requisite: STA2300 or approval of examiner


This course covers principles of design such as randomisation, replication, factorial arrangement and blocking. Practical experience is gained in designing, carrying out, analysing and writing up the results of an experimental study. Methods of analysis are discussed and practiced, mainly on computer. The emphasis is on general principles of design and analysis rather than in describing the details of particular design layouts. Consideration is given to assumption checking, robustness, prior and posterior analysis, contrasts, confounding, covariates, error control and reduction, and interpretation of results.
