Evaluation of software quality depends on statistics for many functions, such as assessing the number of bugs in different software routines and evaluating the efficiency of a program.
Students in this course are introduced to statistics in assessing the quality of software. Students synthesize theory with practical applications to learn the fundamentals of statistical reasoning, use of numeric and graphical descriptive statistics, parameter estimation and inferential methods, research design, and linear regression. Students also have the opportunity to practice using a statistical software package to solve statistics problems.
