• # Playbook: Understanding MODERATION Through Simulation

By Mladen Jovanovic on 31/12/2013

Playbook: Understanding MODERATION Through Simulation Introduction I recently spoke with my college professor regarding the understanding of statistics, and I remarked that I learn the statistical concept the best (and with full comprehension) through simulation. He remarked that I might be in the minority of students (p<0.01 – see what I did here?). Not sure if this is true...

• # How to Visualize Test Change Scores for Coaches [Part 2]

By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/12/2013

To continue the previous How to visualize test change scores for coaches blogpost, here is another way to visualize individual change scores without falling for group averages. This way we can easily see individual ranks in both pre- and post- test, along with change score (which is also color coded). Quite easy to identify the outliers.

• # Understanding Inferential Statistics Using Correlation Example

By Mladen Jovanovic on 19/11/2013

In the following R and knitr experiment/blog post I will be documenting my play with correlation and inferences. I am just reading Discovering Statistics Using R by Andy Field and I am trying to code some staff from the book, plus experiment and see how inferential statistics work.

• # Quick correction in simulating Typical Error

By Mladen Jovanovic on 12/11/2013

I am awaiting review and opinions/critiques from statistics wizard Will Hopkins for my How to visualize test change scores for coaches, but even on his first look he pointed to one small error I did in simulating typical error for vertical jump. It is not huge error, but it is an error in representing typical error in measurement.

• # How to Visualize Test Change Scores for Coaches

By Mladen Jovanovic on 09/11/2013

Coaches are not interested in making inferences to a population, statistical significance, nor mean values (P<0.01). What they are interested are individual athletes, their reactions to training and what are practically significant and meaningful changes.

• # Real-Time Fatigue Monitoring using Metabolic Power and CP/W’

By Mladen Jovanovic on 26/10/2013

Over the years there were couple of tries to monitor fatigue real-time in team sports, such as soccer. The most simple one was to use heart rate (HR) data and see if the players were getting tired by checking if the HR was getting higher and higher. Long story short – this doesn’t work and I have no clue…

• # Playing with R, ggplot2 and knitr

By Mladen Jovanovic on 24/10/2013

Over the last month I have been learning R programming language that is completely FREE and used extensively in statistics and data analysis. I have been also playing with ggplot2 which is a great graphics package for R, along with knitr which was used to produce this blog post/report.
