My Sessions

Basic Statistics (08:30 – 10:30)

In the training course, the basic principles of statistics necessary for statistical evaluation of PTs will be explained, starting from an explanation of data distribution and how to draw that, e.g. with a histogram. Different types of position and variability indexes will be provided to summarize the data. The normal distribution, its important properties and […]

Further Statistics (11:00 – 13:00)

The training will focus on the more sophisticated statistical techniques described in ISO 13528:2015. Robust techniques for the estimation of mean and standard deviation – Algorithm A, Qn method and Q/Hampel method – will be explained and can be compared in an exercise using an Excel programme provided. The principles of kernel density estimation and […]
