Although we will try to help you at all stages of your research, we encourage you to contact us at the beginning of your research for assistance with data collection, experimental design, and sample-size calculations.
Appointments are made by completing the online "Request for Assistance Form". Consultations typically last between 30 minutes and one hour. Follow-up consultations are usually necessary.
The SCC provides applied statistical consulting, but the personnel of the SCC should not be considered research assistants. For example, we will not perform data entry or perform mass production of graphs and tables. However, we will attempt to assist you in creating examples of what are needed. This service is provided free of charge to UVM students, faculty, and staff who are not otherwise covered by grant funding for statistical support.
