Proper experimental design and sampling is a prerequisite to the efficient and cost effective resolution of comparative quantitative research questions. This subject introduces experimental design based analysis and sampling techniques through the use of examples from research and professional settings. It also extends the basic methodology with applications. Students will gain experience in using software packages, and in evaluating and presenting results in the form of a standard statistical report as used in professional practice.
