SCU2 Experimental Design and Analysis

 

This is an online course offered by the SCU. In this course, we cover the following content:

 

Terminology and the principles of experimental design

  • Basic terminology 
  • Practical issues in design 
  • Principles of experimental design 

Four commonly used designs included in this course:

  •  Completely randomised design with only one treatment factor: treatment factor is randomly allocated to all experimental units.
    • How to design the experiment
    • How to analyse the data
  • Completely randomised design with more than one treatment factor (factorial design)
    • How to design the experiment 
    • How to analyse the data
  • Randomised complete block design: the experimental units can be grouped into blocks of similar units.
    • Introduction to "blocks" 
    • Randomised complete block design with one treatment factor
    • Randomised complete block design with more than one treatment factor
  • Split-plot design: one treatment factor is applied to large plots and another treatment factor is applied to subplots within the large plots.

    • Split-plot design with two levels
    • Split-plot design with more than two levels
