New Undergraduate Course Offering!! 
IDST 3500 Fundamental Statistics in the Health Sciences

This online course focuses on the introductory statistical techniques used in health science research.  Students are provided with an introduction to descriptive and inferential statistics.  Further students will be introduced to concepts such as reliability, validity, measures of central tendency, variability, probability, and statistical techniques such as independent and dependent t-tests.  Students are expected to take the material/concepts presented in class and apply them through a series of homework assignments and quizzes.  The overall goal of the course is not only to help students understand the mathematical/statistical concepts presented but also to assist in the application of these procedures.  This is a great opportunity for students to learn about statistics using an interprofessional approach beginning, fall 2015!

For more information about the course, contact Dr. Tracy Davis, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies.  Email address:
