Descriptive and Inferential Statistics
Think about your work experiences. Have you ever witnessed the use of statistics at work? Perhaps statistics were used in monthly reports, in training, or in performance metrics.
- How are descriptive statistics different from inferential statistics, and when is it appropriate to use each?
- Provide an industrial/organizational (I/O) psychology-related example of research that uses both descriptive and inferential statistics. You may either use an example from your personal work experience or look for an example from the literature.
