## Information

### Aims, contents and method of the course

### Assessment and permitted materials

The format of classes will be informal. Lectures will be short, and the focus of classes will be computer exercises and classroom discussions of results and homework. Lectures will take up at most a third of the overall classroom time as the focus in this class is on practical analysis. Students are encouraged to bring along their own data and research questions.Hinweis der SPL: bei Feststellung einer erschlichenen Teilleistung (Abschreiben, Plagiieren, Ghostwriting, etc.) muss die gesamte Lehrveranstaltung als geschummelt gewertet und als Antritt gezählt werden.

### Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

There will be two homework assignments (30 % each) as well as a final assignment (30 %) that will help participants to gain further understanding and experience in interpreting binary logistic regression models. Participation will account for 10% of the grade. Attendance at all classes is compulsory, though half of one class can be missed.

- interpret the results of binary logistic regression models using log odds, odds ratios and predicted probabilities,

- present these results as tables and graphs in ways suitable for general and specialist audiences,

- interpret interaction effects in the appropriate ways,

- use simulations to create measures of uncertainty for the predicted effects,

- distinguish different measures of model fit and include these in presentations of results,

- run straightforward diagnostic tests of their model,

- and use Stata to run and understand binary logistic regression models.
