CONTEXT

The course is aimed at the identification, understanding and management of the basic concepts of the design of research and statistics, within the framework of scientific research processes as well as in the context of the interpretation and evaluation of test scores in various tests used in the applied field. 

From this perspective, the course aims to develop the skills that will enable students to make objective interpretations of the numbers that are handled in this discipline as well as critical interpretations of research in Sciences of the physical activity and sport. 

Data analysis is a tool that can be applied practically to any subject of the race, for the interpretation of the data managed in the field/discipline well to be able to assess the scientific knowledge of the same.
