  • What level of statistical training is required for the course?

    This course is for learners with a foundational knowledge of linear and logistic regression analysis. Prior experience with R is not required.

  • Is there a time limit for the course?

    Once you enroll and the course has launched, you will have unlimited access to the content. You are free to pause and return to your lessons as needed.

  • Will you give me feedback on my analyses?

    Unfortunately, personal feedback is not possible given the volume of researchers we serve. We are certain that Dr. Coffman's thorough approach to guiding you through every step of using R, along with the helpful handouts included in the course, will enable you to successfully perform propensity weighting techniques with your own data. Note that we here at QuantFish are always happy to help you navigate any technical issues related to the course itself.
