Statistical investigation process
The statistical investigation process is a cyclical process that begins with the need to solve a real world problem and aims to reflect the way statisticians work. One description of the statistical investigation process in terms of four steps is as follows.
Step 1. Clarify the problem and formulate one or more questions that can be answered with data.
Step 2. Design and implement a plan to collect or obtain appropriate data.
Step 3. Select and apply appropriate graphical or numerical techniques to analyse the data.
Step 4. Interpret the results of this analysis and relate the interpretation to the original question; communicate findings in a systematic and concise manner.
Perceive what is meant, grasp an idea, and to be thoroughly familiar with.
The extent to which tests measure what was intended; the extent to which data, inferences and actions produced from tests and other processes are accurate.
