A common goal of statistical research is to find links between variables. By using correlation to identify the strength and direction of a linear relationship between two variables and using regression to predict how much a dependent variable changes based on adjustments to an independent variable, you are empowered to make objective, data-driven decisions regarding your processes.
In this easy-to-follow eLearning course, equipped with engaging voice-over narration and compelling content-supporting visuals, animations, and hands-on interactions, learn how to use correlation, an indication of the strength and direction of a linear relationship between two variables, to identify relationships between variables, and use regression, a statistical measure that shows how much a dependent variable varies based on changes to an independent variable, to predict outcomes.
Review practical, real-life examples to reinforce your understanding and work through interactive activities and knowledge checks to apply what you’ve learned.
