Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.
While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit is focused on developing a comprehensive understanding of scientific methods and how to analyse scientific data. The unit will include data from current research projects being conducted within the faculty. The unit aims to cover as many different science disciplines as possible in order to present students with the breadth of statistical methods available and to learn the different analytical approaches. Data from disciplines such as Ecochemistry, Wildlife and Forensic Genetics, Health, and Conservation Ecology will be used. Students will develop their problem solving skills and are expected to apply these to the data sets introduced during the unit.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Be able to apply prior knowledge of scientific methods in the analysis and interpretation of scientific data;
2. Demonstrate knowledge of existing statistical methodologies such as linear regression, ANOVA and hypothesis testing using parametric and non-parametric tests;
3. Develop an understanding of the key concepts underpinning each method and the associated assumptions and limitations. Acquiring problem solving skills to enable the resolution of new problems and data types
4. Be able to communicate effectively using well-developed scientific thinking; and
5. Develop independent critical scientific thinking.
