This is an introductory statistics class focused on the concepts of biological data analyses and on how statistics can help extract scientific insight from data. With the use of real examples from biology and medicine we will learn what statistic methods to use in each case and why. During the course, we will demonstrate how to carry out the calculations for the methods learned and how to implement these methods in the computer program R.
Welcome to the CSI Library tutorial for CC CLUE credit. The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce you to using the library's resources to locate appropriate sources for your academic papers. It was designed with ENG 111 and ENG 151 students in mind. This tutorial also teaches information literacy tools, such as avoiding plagiarism, navigating fake news, and citing your sources in MLA style. This tutorial has 5 chapters, and it should take you around 45 minutes to go through all five sections. Plan accordingly!
These tutorials allow students to access them on a variety of devices (desktop computer, tablet, phone) and integrate a variety of presentation methods (images, video, text). They also include an interactive assessment feature, so that students respond to quiz questions throughout the tutorials and get immediate feedback on their responses. Finally, these tutorials allow students to receive a certificate of completion, along with a percentage-based score. They were designed with the idea that students can retake them, either for a better grade after learning from the responsive quiz feedback, or simply to go back to features they'd like to remember in the future.
