View Curriculum
  • It is recommended (though not mandated) that participants have clear understanding of high school mathematics and basic statistics

Data Science - Hypothesis Testing using Minitab, R is designed to cover majority of the capabilities from Analytics & Data Science perspective, which includes the following:

  • Learn how to formulate a hypothesis statements with business context
  • Preform 2 sample t test for continuous output with discrete inputs in 2 categories
  • Using ANOVA for continuous outputs with more than 2 discrete categories of inputs
  • Performing 2 – proportion test for discrete output and discrete inputs in 2 categories
  • The Chi – Square test for discrete outputs with multiple discrete inputs 
  • Introduction to Non Parametric tests like: Mann Whitney test, Paired T test, Moods median Test and Tukey pairwise comparisons  
  • Learn about Hypothesis testing techniques & how to accomplish the same using R and Minitab
Who is the target audience?
  • Participants who want to take up a career in Data Analytics, Quality management and other allied fields
