Dates: 18-Aug-2014 - 22-Aug-2014
Location: Santa Barbara, California, USA
Focus: Statistics for linguistics with R.
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate
The statistics bootcamp is a 30-hours hands-on
introduction to statistical methods for both
graduate students and seasoned researchers.
Using the open source software and programming
language R, we will:
- briefly recap basic aspects of statistical
evaluation as well as several descriptive
- discuss monofactorial statistical tests for
frequencies, means, dispersions,
- explore different kinds of multifactorial and
multivariate methods, in particular different
kinds of regression approaches as well as
hierarchical cluster analysis.
For all statistical methods to be explored, we
will discuss how to test their assumptions and
visualize their results with nice and annotated
statistical graphs, and sometimes we will
reanalyze published data from
studies. The participants will also get small
functions they can use for their own
statistical applications. Also, there will be a
small section on how to write small
statistical/visualization functions yourself.
The content of this statistics bootcamp is
based on Gries (2013c).
