Facilitator: Dr Chantelle Clohessy completed her BSc (Mathematical Statistics and Physics), BSc Hons (Mathematical Statistics), MSc (Mathematical Statistics) and PhD (Mathematical Statistics) at Nelson Mandela University. Her research focus is in renewable applications and statistical techniques that are used to assess these applications. She is currently a senior lecturer in the Department of Statistics at Nelson Mandela University, where she has been lecturing for 10 years.


Target Group: Postgraduate students


Background: This workshop will focus on ANOVA, MANOVAs and ANCOVAs. Students will be working in R and Excel. The workshop will also cover the R commander package used in R and the Blue Sky Statistics Programme that will assist researchers in their analysis. An introduction into R will also be given to the students such that those that who have not worked with R can also attend. A recap on Hypothesis testing will be given with a reminder of basic statistics required for the ANOVA’s.


The following topics will be covered:

  • Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
    • Factorial experiment, two factor completely randomized experiment
    • Two factor, randomized block design
    • Single factor, repeated measures design
    • Single factor, independent measures design
  • Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA)
  • Introduction to Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA)


This workshop is funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) through the University Capacity Development Grant (UCDG)
