ANNOUNCING A NEW COURSE SEQUENCE
Starting Spring 2009
STAT 4510/7510: Applied Statistical Models I
STAT 8220: Applied Statistical Models II
A fresh update our classic Regression and ANOVA courses
Stat 4510/7510, formerly called Regression and Correlation Analysis, has been updated
and re-titled Applied Statistical Models I. The content of this course has been revised to
provide a unified presentation of linear models including classical regression and analysis
of variance topics. By presenting classical regression and ANOVA topics in a cohesive,
condensed format, students will also be exposed to random and mixed effects models in
the first semester. Topics in the “new” 4510/7510 include simple linear regression,
multiple regression, analysis of designed experiments, multi-factor ANOVA, random
effects models, and mixed effects models.
Starting in FS2009 the second course in the new sequence, Stat 8220: Applied Statistical
Models II, will be offered. This course will focus on important modern modeling
techniques with an emphasis on methods and procedures that are of interest to applied
researchers. Topics include linear mixed models, generalized linear models, and
nonlinear models. Optional topics, time permitting, are generalized linear mixed models,
Bayesian estimation, longitudinal data models, nonparametric regression, generalized
additive models and log-linear models.
During both semesters, students will be expected to apply the techniques learned in class
to datasets using statistical software. We anticipate the use of SAS during the first
semester SAS and/or R during the second semester.
At the present time, we plan to continue offering Stat 4530/7530: Analysis of Variance.
Depending on student need, we will re-evaluate the necessity of continuing this course in
Other statistics courses that students may find important in meeting their career goals
may be found in our Schedule of Planned Statistics Offerings, which is a useful tool for
