Introduction to Data Analysis

This page from the Analytical Sciences Digital Library provides a good introduction to data analysis in analytical chemistry. Topics include means, standard deviation, and deciding if two results are different at some level of statistical significance is the basis for analytical decision making. This module teaches students how to use t-tests, Q-tests, and to tell when differences are statistically real. The complete text of the modules is available for download in either Microsoft Word or PDF format, and the data may be downloaded in an Excel file.
