Info: The QAC 201 final exam is a research poster session that provides students with the opportunity to share the fruits of their work with others. With an increase in enrollment this fall (over 100 students!) we are looking for folks in the area who would be interested in playing a role in evaluating student poster presentations. It is a great opportunity to visit campus, connect with students and share your expertise.  If you are available to act as an evaluator for this session, please click the registration button.  To register, please contact Professor Arielle Selya directly.

The Quantitative Analysis Center (QAC) at Wesleyan has been developing an introductory course aimed at attracting a larger number of students to opportunities in the area of data analysis and applied statistics. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), this course allows students to ask and answer questions about which they feel passionately. Students generate hypotheses based on existing data; conduct a literature review and evaluate the content of empirical research; prepare data for analysis; select and conduct descriptive and inferential statistical analyses; and present research findings to expert and novice audiences. By providing opportunities to learn one of four major statistical analysis software packages (R, SAS, SPSS, and Stata) and translate across them, this course aims to empower students to manage, analyze and interpret large data sets from a range of different disciplines.
