This second course in statistical modeling will introduce students to the study of the analysis of variance (ANOVA), analysis of covariance (ANCOVA), and experimental design. ANOVA and ANCOVA, presented as a type of linear regression model, will provide the mathematical basis for designing experiments for data science applications. Emphasis will be placed on important design-related concepts, such as randomization, blocking, factorial design, and causality. Some attention will also be given to ethical issues raised in experimentation.

There are 4 modules in this course
In this module, we will introduce the basic conceptual framework for experimental design and define the models that will allow us to answer meaningful questions about the differences between group means with respect to a continuous variable. Such models include the one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) models.

In this module, we will learn how statistical hypothesis testing and confidence intervals, in the ANOVA/ANCOVA context, can help answer meaningful questions about the differences between group means with respect to a continuous variable.

In this module, we will study the two-way ANOVA model and use it to answer research questions using real data.
In this module, we will study fundamental experimental design concepts, such as randomization, treatment design, replication, and blocking. We will also look at basic factorial designs as an improvement over elementary “one factor at a time” methods. We will combine these concepts with the ANOVA and ANCOVA models to conduct meaningful experiments.

Frequently asked questions
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
When you enroll in the course, you get access to all of the courses in the Specialization, and you earn a certificate when you complete the work. Your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.
Yes. In select learning programs, you can apply for financial aid or a scholarship if you can’t afford the enrollment fee. If fin aid or scholarship is available for your learning program selection, you’ll find a link to apply on the description page.
