## Applied Analysis of Variance and Experimental Design

 Lecturer Dr. Lukas Meier Time Mo 13-15 Coordinators Dominik Rothenhäusler, Emilija Perkovic Place HG G 5

Beginning of lecture: Monday, 21/09/2015. (Exercises start on 21/9/2015 at 15:15 in room HG E 1.1, with a special introduction to the "R" software)

Exercises: Details about the exercises can be found here

Doctoral students: Attaining the exam is required for doctoral students in order to obtain credit points.

### Objective

At the end of his course you will be able to design an experimental study, carry out an appropriate statistical analysis of the data and properly interpret and communicate the results.

Notice: Former course title: "Angewandte Varianzanalyse und Versuchsplanung" / "Applied Analysis of Variance and Design of Experiments"

### Exam (for regular students)

 Performance assessment information Official Information from course catalogue General information You can expect (see examples below) 3 "regular" exercises 2 multiple choice exercises Old Exams Last two exams Please note different lecturer contains topics that we did not discuss (crossover designs, fractional factorials, many calculations by hand, ...) was: open book / now: closed book (see conditions in myStudies) but: it should give you an idea about the length of the exam New Exam Some modified exercises from above exams can be found here. This PDF will give you an idea about the style, not the length of the exam! Compared to the old exams you can expect that the questions about fractional factorials will be replaced by something about random effects, mixed effects and/or split plot models. Will the exam be on the computer? No, it will be 'on paper'. Nevertheless, there will be R-related questions like interpreting R output selecting the right command for formulating a model (of a list of commands) etc. More questions? Please ask!
