September 12, 2014 to October 03, 2014 November 14, 2014 to December 05, 2014 January 16, 2015 to February 06, 2015 March 13, 2015 to April 03, 2015 May 15, 2015 to June 05, 2015 July 10, 2015 to July 31, 2015 September 11, 2015 to October 02, 2015 November 13, 2015 to December 04, 2015

Thank you for your submission.

Statistics 3 – ANOVA and Regression

Aim of Course:

To provide an easy introduction to ANOVA and multiple linear regression through a series of practical applications. Once you've completed this course you'll be able to correctly analyze studies with a single dependent variable and multiple independent variables. The course provides an introduction to analysis of variance (ANOVA) and multiple regression such as you might find in a year-long or four-credit college course that also included the content of our Introduction to Statistics 1 and 2 courses. This course provides a transition to more advanced or specialized courses and also a broadened perspective for anyone teaching basic statistics, especially AP Statistics.

Course Program:




  • Simple Regression
  • Multiple Linear Regression
  • Regression Inference
  • Model Assessment


  • Assumptions for Regression
  • Interaction
  • Regression for Prediction
  • Multicollinearity


Homework in this course consists of guided data analysis problems using software.

In addition to assigned readings, this course also has practice exercises, short narrated software demos, and supplemental readings available online.

Anyone who needs an introduction to ANOVA or regression, especially those interested in taking regression or more advanced courses at statistics.com.



These are listed for your benefit so you can determine for yourself, whether you have the needed background, whether from taking the listed courses, or by other experience.

If you are unclear as to whether you have mastered the above requirements, try these placement tests.

Organization of the Course:

This course takes place online at the Institute for 3 weeks. During each course week, you participate at times of your own choosing - there are no set times when you must be online. Course participants will be given access to a private discussion board. In class discussions led by the instructor, you can post questions, seek clarification, and interact with your fellow students and the instructor.

At the beginning of each week, you receive the relevant material, in addition to answers to exercises from the previous session. During the week, you are expected to go over the course materials, work through exercises, and submit answers. Discussion among participants is encouraged. The instructor will provide answers and comments, and at the end of the week, you will receive individual feedback on your homework answers.

Time Requirement: about 15 hours per week, at times of  your choosing.

Students come to the Institute for a variety of reasons. As you begin the course, you will be asked to specify your category:
  1. You may be interested only in learning the material presented, and not be concerned with grades or a record of completion.
  2. You may be enrolled in PASS (Programs in Analytics and Statistical Studies) that requires demonstration of proficiency in the subject, in which case your work will be assessed for a grade.
  3. You may require a "Record of Course Completion," along with professional development credit in the form of Continuing Education Units (CEU's).  For those successfully completing the course, 3.75 CEU's and a record of course completion will be issued by The Institute, upon request.

Course Text:
There is not a required text purchase for this course. All the course materials will be provided during the course.


In this course, software is needed for statistical analysis and simple resampling/simulation operations. We recommend one of these 3 options:
  1. Regular Excel (not Excel Starter) and Box Sampler
  2. Regular Excel (not Excel Starter) and Resampling Stats for Excel
  3. StatCrunch
  4. R

Excel: you will need to have some facility with using formulas in Excel. If you don't, please review either this tutorial or this tutorial before the course starts.

Box Sampler: this is a free add-in for Excel, designed as a visual teaching and learning tool for doing resampling simulations. Runs only on Windows.  Installation file is here, documentation here.

Resampling Stats for Excel: this is a commercial add-in for Excel, designed as a practitioner's tool for doing resampling simulations. A free license is available to all course participants, while they are enrolled in the statistics.com sequence of introductory statistics courses. Runs only on Windows. Download the installation file here.

StatCrunch: this is a very affordable web-based statistical software program, which also has simulation and resampling capabilities. Runs over the web, so can be used with both Windows and Mac. Resampling is not as intuitive as with Box Sampler and Resampling Stats for Excel.  Learn more at www.statcrunch.com.

R: R is a powerful opensource statistical scripting language that is widely recognized as an industry standard.  You will need to have familiarity with R and RStudio prior to taking the Statistics 1, 2 or 3 courses if you choose to use R as your software package.  Comprehensive supplemental materials are available for R users.  You can learn more about R here and RStudio here.
