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 explores linear regression techniques for examining relationships between a variety of variables, including both continuous and discrete response variables. Emphasis will be placed on the practical aspects of analysing large data sets, fitting a model and assessing a model using a statistical package. The simple regression model will be reviewed. Multiple regression models will be introduced, together with logistic regression and other generalised linear models. Applications to business, natural and social sciences and other areas will be illustrated.
On completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Describe the principles of linear modelling in data analysis;
2. Formulate an appropriate model;
3. Estimate the parameters of a model using a statistical computer package;
4. Apply and explain statistical inference to a model using a statistical computer package;
5. Evaluate the appropriateness and validity of a model;
6. Interpret the results of an estimated model and predict the consequences of these results;
7. Produce the results of analyses in a form which is suitable for publication; and
8. Apply important extensions to the linear regression model.
