Regression Analysis

Format Web-based

If your ultimate goal is creating a model that will predict a future value for some dependent variable, then you need Regression Analysis. Regression Analysis is one of the most powerful statistical methods for determining the relationships between variables and using those relationships to forecast future outcomes.

Learn how to derive and implement simple and multiple linear regression models. Assess the overall quality of the models and interpret individual predictors for significance. Discover the assumptions that underlie the models and how to test whether your data meets those assumptions, and what to do when your assumptions are not met.

Course Overview

Learning Objectives:

  • Review how to use a scatter plot to determine if two variables appear correlated and to what degree.
  • Explain how to calculate the correlation coefficient and the coefficient of determination.
  • Show how regression analysis can be used to predict the value of one variable from another variable by fitting a least squares regression line to the data and judging the validity of the model.
  • Describe how to use information generated by a computer output from a simple linear regression to write the equation of the line and perform predictions based upon the model.
  • Explain the purpose of multiple regression and how it differs from simple regression.
  • Describe the elements of the multiple linear regression model and identify assumptions about the data required for regression analysis to work.
  • Use the “best subsets” method to determine the possible regression models and apply several techniques for selecting the best model.
  • Discuss what can go wrong with multiple regression that may lead to incorrect conclusions.

System Requirements
Here is what you need to participate in an ASQ web-based, self-paced, or instructor-led virtual WebEx course.

Registration Email

After course registration, you will receive an email with access instructions. If you do not, please check your email junk, spam, or clutter folders. If the email is not there, please contact ASQ. For virtual WebEx courses, you will receive another email 24 hours prior to the start of class containing additional access information.

Technical Requirements

  • Mac: Safari 7 or later, Google Chrome (latest version), Firefox (latest version)
  • For instructor-led virtual WebEx courses, a speakerphone or telephone headset in a designated room or space with no distractions (preferred)

NOTE: Refer to product description for any additional system requirements.

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.

Cancellation Policy
ASQ reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule courses and to change instructors. Please be advised that in the event of a course cancellation, ASQ is not responsible for airfare penalties or other travel related expenses you may incur.

    • Requests for cancellations/transfers received at least 5 business days before the start of the course receive a full refund/transfer.
    • Requests received within 5 business days of the course starting incur a $150 processing fee.
    • After the course starts, there are no refunds or transfers.
    • Registrants who fail to attend without advance notice are liable for the entire course fee.
    • If you cannot find a substitute, we can transfer your course fees to another ASQ course of your choice.
  • You must successfully complete the entire course or program before IACET CEUs and a Certificate of Completion can be awarded.
