Getting Started with Statistics for Librarians

by Robb Mackes / 29 September 2017 / No Comments

 

Does the term “p value” make you anxious when you read research articles?

How high is your confidence level in interpreting research data?

As librarians interact with more research through efforts with evidence-based practice and systematic reviews, they have a growing need for understanding statistics.  This confidence-building course will help you be more comfortable with statistical concepts for reading research findings and interpreting data.

Goals and objectives:

After participating in this recorded webinar, you will be able to:

  • Understand basic statistical terms such as standard deviation, t test, p value, and so on
  • Identify test measures used in published research studies
  • Interpret the data, formulas, and graphs used in the research findings
