PSYC 879: Applied Nonparametric Statistical Methods (4 )
This course covers nonparametric statistical methods for testing hypotheses when the assumptions of ordinary parametric statistics are not met. Topics include a review of parametric statistics, sampling distributions, the logic of hypothesis testing, and motivations for using nonparametric techniques. In-depth coverage will be given to distribution-free procedures, sign tests, contingency tables, median tests, chi-square and other goodness-of-fit tests, rank correlations, randomness tests, Monte Carlo methods, resampling methods, tests of independence, 1-sample, 2-sample, and k-sample methods, permutation tests, and function smoothing and splines. There will be an emphasis on the theory underlying nonparametric methods. Applications across the behavioral and social sciences are emphasized. Course consists of three hours of lecture and a required one-hour lab session where computing applications are taught. Prerequisite: PSYC 790 and 791 or equivalent, or consent of instructor. LEC
