Data Analysis

Course ID DAASQ
Format Web-based

By analyzing data using statistical methods and tools, you can reveal the basic nature and behavior of a process and show how stable or unstable a process is. Data analysis enables you to determine how well or how poorly a process is currently performing, determine relationships between process variables, identify possible root causes behind variations in quality, and determine possible methods for process improvement.


In this easy-to-follow eLearning course, equipped with engaging voice-over narration and compelling content-supporting visuals, animations, and hands-on interactions, learn the fundamentals of data analysis, including the concept of probability, normal and binomial probability distribution types, and common and special cause variation. Review practical, real-life examples to reinforce your understanding and work through interactive activities and knowledge checks to apply what you’ve learned.

WebEx – Virtual Course: Advance Preparation and Student Information

Join a Test Session

We strongly suggest that you join a WebEx test session in advance of your scheduled virtual training, using your preferred web browser. This can help prevent problems launching content the day your training begins.

If you do not have administrative privileges on the SAME computer you will be using the day of your training (i.e., your workstation within your organization) you may need the assistance of your local IT/IS help desk staff for the platform to engage correctly.

To join a test session (meeting), click here and enter your name and email address to join. If successful, you will see a screen that says "Congratulations! Your system is now set up properly ..."

Deactivate Pop-up Blockers

You should deactivate any pop-up blockers, spam filters, and company firewalls that could prevent the WebEx client platform or web-based course from working properly. Third-party toolbars such as Bing, Yahoo, and Google should also be disabled due to their own pop-up blocking capabilities.
