Who is this class for: This course is aimed at anyone who wants to improve their statistical inferences, either because you are preparing to do empirical research for the first time, or because you were never taught these important statistical concepts in a clear and accessible manner in the past. I didn't know most of the things you will learn in this course until well after I got my PhD, and I've tried to create the course I would have liked to have gotten when I started to do research. You should have some basic knowledge about calculating descriptive statistics, and how to perform t-tests, correlations, and ANOVA's (If you don't have this knowledge, try https://www.coursera.org/learn/basic-statistics first). We will use R in many of the assignments, but you don't need any previous knowledge of R - we will mainly use it as a fancy calculator.

Great, well designed course. By far the best online course I've taken on any platform for any topic. In my opinion the course offers something for all experience levels and is useful as a first advanced excursion into statistics for beginners, but equally interesting as a refresher for experienced researchers. Thanks to Daniel Lakens and everyone else who was involved into making this course possible.

It's a really interesing course about statistical inferences. You can learn a lot about how to recollect data, how to analyse it and how to interpret it. It is very recommendable for all kind of researchers.

This is an excellent course for firming up statistical knowledge and replicable research practices. Likely useful for all psych/cognitive science PhD students and researchers further along who come from the frequentist training tradition.

An accessible and interesting course. I learned so much (and refreshed myself on things I should already know!). Thank you so much Dr Lakens for putting together this course. I've been recommending it to everyone!
