Practical Training: Data Analyses
Students will study existing datasets and will characterise the presented variables in terms of measurement scales. They will also formulate hypotheses regarding possible relationships between variables and will suggest appropriate tests. Students will report these ideas in concise, clear and comprehensive English. The practical training course provides preparation for an advanced training course in the third period, during which the same datasets are analysed via statistical tests (and is thus intended as part of the internship preparation).
