About

The Linear Statistical Modelling programme offered by The Open University UK covers statistical modelling where a response variable depends on one or several explanatory variables: such as how well patients respond to a treatment, given their age and disease severity; or how different strains of wheat compare when grown in various conditions.

Overview

Taking a practical approach, you’ll use real problems and data to stimulate analyses and their interpretation. Statistical tools are introduced, and use of the statistical software package, Genstat (supplied) is taught. You need a reasonable understanding of basic statistical ideas, as developed by Analysing data (M248). You’ll learn to use the most important methods of analysing data – a skill that too few people have.

What you will study

This Linear Statistical Modelling  programme offered by The Open University UK   is about the statistical modelling of situations in which a response variable depends on at least one explanatory variable. It offers a practical treatment of an important area of statistical methodology, applicable in a wide variety of situations. For example, it enables us to deal with questions such as how cavity wall insulation will affect the total energy consumption of a house; or how the probability of a successful bone marrow transplant is influenced by the ages of the donor and recipient, and other factors; or how loss due to abrasion might depend on the hardness and tensile strength of samples of rubber.

Linear statistical modelling uses real problems and data to stimulate analyses and their interpretation. Technical background is not ignored, but the main emphasis is on the knowledge needed to analyse data effectively.

Programme Structure

Throughout your module studies, you’ll get help and support from your assigned module tutor. They’ll help you by:

  • Marking your assignments (TMAs) and providing detailed feedback for you to improve.
  • Guiding you to additional learning resources.
  • Providing individual guidance, whether that’s for general study skills or specific module content.
  • Facilitating online discussions between your fellow students, in the dedicated module and tutor group forums.
