This method will periodically connect to a message broker using PHP::AMQP, and collect messages from the LSE Student Information System. Students are added and removed from courses (SITS Modules) and groups (CMIS classes). It will create Moodle accounts if these do not already exist.
The course provides a precise and accurate treatment of introductory probability theory, statistical ideas, methods and techniques. Students will also be exposed to the Minitab statistical package. Topics covered are data visualisation and descriptive statistics, probability theory, random variables, common distributions of random variables, multivariate random variables, sampling distributions of statistics, point estimation, interval estimation, hypothesis testing, analysis of variance (ANOVA), linear regression, nonparametric tests, goodness-of-fit and independence tests.
