Detailed discussion of the program data vector and data handling techniques that are required to apply statistical methods. Topics are based on the current content of the Base SAS Certification Exam and typically include: importing, validating, and exporting of data files; manipulating, subsetting, and grouping data; merging and appending data sets; basic detail and summary reporting; and code debugging. Additional topics with practical applications, such as graphics and advanced reporting, may also be introduced. Statistical methods for analyzing data are not covered in this course. Regular access to a computer for homework and class exercises is required. Previous exposure to SAS is expected.

Prerequisites are being adjusted to:


* delete ST 302 (no longer taught) 


* add either ST 312 or ST 372 (to allow ST minors into the course more easily)


* add a statistical computing prerequisite (ST 307)


Course offering is being updated from Spring to every Fall and Spring, effective immediately. Recent enrollments: Spring 201: 53, Fall 2016: 48, Spring 2017: 50.


Catalog description is updated to more specifically indicate that this course is based on the SAS programming language.

Student Learning Outcomes

We have been slowly phasing in the new prerequisites for our 400-level ST courses (specifically the addition of ST 307) over the past two years to allow students outside the major to be able to take some upper-level ST courses to complete their minors. ST 307 has been required for new minors since Spring 2015, and we have been advertising this planned change for the past 3 years.
aeherget (Thu, 30 Mar 2017 16:05:30 GMT): AECHH: Based on last approved syllabus from 1988, description is changing to more closely align with the existing student learning outcomes.
