Regression Modelling is a course in applied statistics that studies the use of linear regression techniques for examining relationships between variables. The course emphasises the principles of statistical modelling through the iterative process of fitting a model, examining the fit to assess imperfections in the model and suggest alternative models, and continuing until a satisfactory model is reached. Both steps in this process require the use of a computer: model fitting uses various numerical algorithms, and model assessment involves extensive use of graphical displays. The R statistical computing package is used as an integral part of the course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate a thorough understanding of the R statistical computing language, particularly the graphical capabilities;
- Fit simple linear regression models, interpret model parameters and relate theses back to the underlying research question;
- Analyse and interpret relationships between a response variable and a covariate;
- Analyse and interpret relationships between a response variable and several covariates;
- Assess and refine simple and multiple linear regression models based on diagnostic measures, including identifying and discuss the implications of outlying and influential data points; and,
- Explore and discuss a useful multiple linear regression model from a number of competing models.
Offerings of this course outside of Semester 1 and Semester 2 are available only to students enrolled in the M. Applied Data Analytics.
- The research-based assessment will consist of assignments. (50) [LO 1,2,3,4,5,6]
- The other assessment may include but is not restricted to: exams, quizzes, presentations and other assessments as appropriate. (50) [LO 1,2,3,4,5,6]
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Students are expected to commit 130 hours of work in completing this course. This includes time spent in scheduled classes and self-directed study time.
