Learning Outcomes

After successfully completing the Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD), students will be able to understand the three classic designs in the Complete Block Design, including the (1) Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD), (2) Latin Square Design, and (3) Graeco-Latin Square Design. Specific learning outcomes for all three designs include:

  1. Perform the four steps of the Design of Experiments
  2. Perform the post-hoc analysis and interpret the results in the context of the problem
  3. Design the Experiments Using both MS Excel and Minitab
  4. Perform Analysis Using Minitab
  5. Develop the Analysis Models
  6. Compare and Contrast between the Block Designs and the Completely Randomized Design
  7. Distinguish the Advantages of Block Designs
