    Statistical thinking is vital for solving real-world problems. At the heart of statistical thinking is making decisions based on data. This requires disciplined approaches to identifying problems and the ability to quantify and interpret the variation that you observe in your data. • Obtain a common understanding of Statistical Thinking, its definition, and its application. • Clarify the distinction between Statistical Thinking and statistical methods. • Provide “practice” in applying Statistical Thinking to real situations. • Provide attendees the opportunity to address implementationFile Size: KB.

    Statistical Thinking This blog is devoted to statistical thinking and its impact on science and everyday life. Emphasis is given to maximizing the use of information, avoiding statistical pitfalls, describing problems caused by the frequentist approach to statistical inference, describing advantages of Bayesian and likelihood methods, and discussing intended and unintended differences between. During this performance-based examination, candidates will apply the skills and knowledge necessary to apply statistical thinking and fundamental statistical methods to solve industrial problems. Successful candidates should have the ability to: Explain the importance of using data and applying statistical methods to solve problems.
