MLO 1: Mathematical and Statistical Theory
Based on mathematical foundations, students demonstrate the ability (i) to interpret theoretical statistical statements, (ii) to communicate statistical ideas using mathematical language, and (iii) to address research questions using statistical theory.
MLO 2: Statistical Methods
Students demonstrate the ability to follow the statistical investigative process to formulate an answerable research question, collect, manipulate, and explore data, and analyze and conduct inference via statistical models.
MLO 3: Data Manipulation and Computation
Students demonstrate the ability to manage and manipulate data, use multiple programming languages, answer research questions through appropriate software coding, and perform basic statistical computation.
MLO 4: Statistical Practice and Communication
Students demonstrate the ability to communicate with collaborators effectively and respectfully. Students are able to adjust their use of language depending on the collaborators’ backgrounds, to practice ethics (particularly for human-subject data), to understand (or reformulate) a research question (or a project goal), and to implement appropriate statistical methods. Students are able to produce an informative report, both written and oral, which is easily readable by the target audience. Students engage in ethical reasoning and public action through their profession to promote social justice and equity.
