This web course is designed to help librarians faced with statistical 
questions at the reference desk. Whether assisting a student reading 
through papers or guiding them when they brightly ask “Can I run a 
t-test on this?”, librarians will feel more confident facing statistical 
questions. This course will be ideal for library professionals who are 
looking to expand their knowledge of statistical methods in order to 
provide assistance to students who may use basic statistics in their 
courses or research. Students taking the course should have a general 
understanding of mean, median, and mode.

Takeaways:

  * Develop knowledge related to statistical concepts, including basic
    information on what the goals of statistical tests are and which
    kinds of data scales are associated with each, with a focus on
    t-tests, correlations, and chi-square tests.
  * Explore different kinds of statistical tests and increase ability to
    discern between the utility of different types of statistical tests
    and why one may be more appropriate than another.
  * Increase literacy in evaluating and describing statistical research
    that uses t-tests, correlations, and chi-square tests.
  * Improve confidence in answering questions about statistical tests in
    a reference setting, including explaining tests and results and
    assisting users in determining which statistical tests are
    appropriate for a dataset. Helping others analyze graphical
    representations of statistics.
