The course language is “simple English”, but we can answer questions in German or French.
The course is a hands-on course where most examples will run as exercises within R / RStudio
This course will cover theoretical and practical aspects of measurement properties in health sciences. We will talk about reliability, measurement error, different forms of validity, and we will learn how to calculate and interpret statistical tests for reliability and validity.
