Applied Sports Statistics content overview

At Victoria University, we offer an Applied Sports Statistics unit that is delivered predominantly online* and provides a structured progression through the main concepts associated with MBI statistics, such as:

  • research designs
  • simple statistics
  • effect statistics with confidence limits
  • smallest important effects
  • inferential statistics applied to:
    • comparing group means
    • controlled trials
    • crossovers
    • validity
    • reliability 
    • meta-analysis
  • introduction to the concepts of mixed modelling and guidance on the use of the self-paced suite of materials available at Sportscience.

* Students will have the opportunity to meet Professor Will Hopkins face-to-face during our burst-mode lectures in February. If you’re overseas or interstate you can take part in a webinar or watch recordings of the sessions.

Delivery mode

The unit will run from 20 February - 24 May 2019.

It features 12 online modules. The format for these modules includes:

  • pre-recorded lectures
  • access to dedicated tutors online or via phone/teleconference
  • readings
  • activities
  • online assessments that can be completed from wherever you are
  • video assessment feedback.

The unit is delivered mostly by Professor Will Hopkins with the collaboration of other MBI champions, and coordinated by Dr Fabio Serpiello.

Enrolment – two options available

The unit will be offered in two different modalities, assessed and non-assessed.

The assessed unit (SFS7010 Applied Sports Statistics) is a normal higher-education unit with assessments and grading. Upon successful completion, you will receive credits that can be used for future recognition of prior learning (RPL).

The non-assessed unit (JNU0001 Applied Sports Statistics) features the same content as the assessed one, however you are not required to submit any assessments. This is a non-award unit, and therefore no credits will be recognised if you wish to use the unit for future RPL.

Cost

2019 costs are:
