The first session discussed the 'design and collect' process; and the second session discussed statistics for impact analysis.

During this third session, some of the points we cover are:

  • Understand measures of statistical significance (p-values)
  • Moving from statistical significance (p-values) to measures of effect size and confidence intervals
  • Communicating results with confidence intervals
