You should attend the following classes each week:
· one 1 hour lecture
· one 2 hour SGTA class
Check timetables.mq.edu.au or the unit iLearn page for class details.
Lectures begin in Week 1. Lecture notes are available on iLearn prior to the lecture.
SGTA classes begin in week 2 and are based on work from the current week’s lecture. SGTA classes are held in computing labs and allow you to practice techniques learnt in lectures. We will mainly use SPSS, but we will supplement this with other statistical software. You will complete worksheets as part of the learning process.
