This introductory course of applied statistics is primarily recommended to students of Erasmus+ and other foreign exchange programs. The course is also recommended to Czech students from 3rd or higher grade (programs: Applied research and its methodology, Social and Public Policy). Students will learn and practice basic statistical methods by analyzing sociological survey data in a program called SPSS (Statistical Product and Service Solutions). As this is an introductory course, no previous knowledge of statistics is required.

The classes are a combination of lectures and seminars. The first part of each class (approx. 40 minutes) is a lecture during which the tutor introduces key concepts in statistical theory and methods of data analysis (see syllabus below). The second part (approx. 40 minutes) is a seminar where students apply the methods introduced during the lecture in the SPSS environment. Institute of Sociological Studies will provide the enrolled students with the SPSS licence (so that they will have the software installed on their personal computers).

The course will be taught ONLINE via zoom in the summer semester. Online classes will be recorded and the videos will be available to enrolled students. To enter the online classes (on Tuesday between 17:00 and 18:20) please use the following zoom link: https://cuni-cz.zoom.us/j/91734503051?pwd=OU92K0RzbGdZSWU3czg0aVZMSXBldz09

Požadavky ke zkoušce - angličtina
Poslední úprava: Mgr. Ivan Petrúšek (25.01.2022)

Grading will be based on homework assignments (7 mandatory assignments, each worth 5 points) and a final exam (worth 65 points). Students may earn up to 100 total points.

Deadline for homework assignments: Wednesday (11:59 pm) via email. In other words, students will have eight days to prepare and submit their homework assignments.


  • 91 - 100 points = grade A
  • 81 - 90 points = grade B
  • 71 - 80 points = grade C
  • 61 - 70 points = grade D
  • 51 - 60 points = grade E
  • 0 - 50 points = not passed (grade F)

NOTE: Total points earned will be rounded to the whole number (e. g. the overall result of 50.5 points is rounded to 51 points and corresponds to the grade E).
