To gain knowledge and expertise in the following methods of analysis: One-Way Anova, Multiple Regression analysis, Path analysis, Logistic Regression analysis and multilevel analysis. Being able to connect a statistical technique to a certain research problem and to be able to apply this technique on empirical data and to correctly interpret the results of such analyses.
Students are advised to attend the tutorials. Attendance of SPSS-practicals is obligatory. Students are required to complete the assignments for the SPSS-practicals sufficiently.
