Note from June 29, 2020
Although we do not yet know how long the social distancing related to the Covid-19 pandemic will last, and regardless of the changes that had to be made in the evaluation of the June 2020 session in relation to what is provided for in this learning unit description, new learnig unit evaluation methods may still be adopted by the teachers; details of these methods have been - or will be - communicated to the students by the teachers, as soon as possible.

The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
Main themes
The objective of this course is to give a basic knowledge in the statistical data processing related with the biomedical domain. The course also deals with how computer software, in particular JMP (SAS) can be used to present and analyze data.
The course comprises theoretical lectures and exercise sessions: One- and two-dimensional descriptive statistics. Inferential statistics: populations and samples, probabilities, variables, theoretical distributions, confidence intervals (means, variance, proportion), hypothesis testing based on sample means (Student t-test) and proportions.
Aims

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1

This course is designed to introduce the students to the statistical and methodological issues applied to problems in the biomedical sciences and to avoid the common pitfalls in data analysis.

At the end of the course the successful student will be able to use the techniques of inferential statistics within the framework of his/her research. The course focuses on the most frequently used statistical methods. The underlying mathematical developments are limited to a strict minimum and replaced by intuitive reasoning and concrete examples, especially via practical exercise sessions.

Content
This course includes lectures and exercises with JMP software. It contains summary of the concepts of descriptive statistics and a two-dimensional: produce useful graphical and numerical summaries like mean, median, standard deviation, variance, confidence interval.  It focuses mainly on the basic issues of statistical inference: population and sample, probabilities, random variables, distribution theory, type 1 and type 2 errors , confidence intervals (mean, variance, and proportion), and hypothesis tests related to the mean (Student's t) and proportions.
Evaluation methods
Evaluation based on written evaluation with use of JMP software
