Dr. Richard Horsley taught a short course for field and laboratory researchers to refresh their knowledge of statistics and experimental design. The course, Introduction to Statistical Experimental Design, took place January 16-18, 2018 in Loftsgard Hall at North Dakota State University.

Twenty-seven researchers from universities and industry attended the three-day course. Topics covered included a statistical review, experiment planning, hypothesis testing, mean comparison tests, regression, correlation, and several common experimental designs.

Class participants who work as certified crop advisers, agronomists and soil scientists earned 18 CEUs for completing the course.

Horsley is a professor and barley breeder and is head of the Department of Plant Sciences at NDSU. He has taught the graduate level course in experimental design (PLSC 724) yearly since 1987. The short course was offered in 2008, 2010 and 2013, and will be offered again in the future.
