This course gives a practical introduction to the use of multiple linear regression in the analysis of continuous outcomes.
In simple linear regression a continuous outcome (e.g. blood pressure, salary) is predicted using one variable by searching for the line that best fits the data. In multiple regression we extend this idea to the context where 2 or more predictors are used to predict the outcome. In case of a categorical predictor multiple regression is often referred to as ANOVA or ANCOVA.
The course is offered online using a blend of instruction videos, self-study exercises, online Q&A and livestream teaching through the electronic learning environment Blackboard/VICE. You need to have SPSS installed on your PC (see instruction video).
To obtain the credit for the doctoral school, there is a mandatory evaluation through a take-home task at the end of the course (regardless of your faculty).
