Using the Reaction game, students will conduct their own 'clinical trial' in this module. They will test their reaction time and use their mental arithmetic skills to analyse the data set, getting an insight into the world of a statistician. A fun and engaging module that helps them understand appropriate measures of central tendency and spread (mean, median, mode and range) in a real world context.
