# Statistical Analysis with The General Linear Model

## Dublin Core

### Description

This course is about a large and complex set of statistical methods tied together by a unifying conceptual framework known as “The General Linear Model” (GLM). This model can be used to answer an amazing variety of research questions within an inﬁnite number of diﬀerent experimental designs. Basically, the GLM can be used to test almost any hypothesis about a dependent variable (DV) that is measured numerically (e.g., height, income, IQ, age, time needed to run a 100-yard dash, grade

point average, etc.; but not categorical DVs like eye color, sex, etc.). In a ﬁrst statistics course, students will have seen some special cases of the GLM without knowing

it. For example, the various kinds of “t-tests” (one-sample, between-subjects, within-subjects, etc.) are special cases of the GLM. So are correlation, regression, and the Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). We will not assume any prior knowledge of these techniques, but students should realize, if the new methods seem familiar, that they are now seeing the big picture.
