In this module we look at how to design experiments, how to analyse and present the data obtained and how to communicate those results to others. The lecture and workshop component includes the principles of experimental design, statistical analysis including t-tests, correlation and regression, ANOVA, ANCOVA and non-parametric tests and discussion of how to interpret and present data. The tutorial component consists of a series of writing exercises designed to teach how to structure an argument and how to communicate ideas effectively.
