Session #2 of my class was about hypothetical approach for data analysis.
It started with the structure of the approach.
(1) Define the purpose/goal/issue
(2) Develop hypothesis
(3) Select appropriate method(s)
(4) Select necessary data
After that, four teams competed in developping convincing hypothesis.
The issue was “sales decrease in the last three months”, for which each team was required to present their thoughts on the effective hypothesis.
Each idea was good but not specific enough to select an appropriate data set.
I hope the students will learn how to develop hypothesis effecgtively and efficiently through my coming sessions !
