Most public health and wider health science journals report some form of statistics. The ability to understand and extract meaning from journal articles, and the ability to critically evaluate the statistics reported in research papers are fundamental skills in public health.
This type of assessment demonstrates how students can apply the skills that they learn in this course to real-world scenarios wherein they might need to interpret/review articles for public health use.
After reading excerpts from published research articles, you will be asked to answer questions that would ask you to describe, interpret, and report on different statistical concepts.
Please download the excerpts of these papers from the Assessment 2 folder of this subject.
It is essential that you use appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research. Please see more information on referencing here https://library.torrens.edu.au/academicskills/apa/tool
