We demonstrate tools for performing univariate analyses of both categorical and continuous data. We also will review a suite of interactive teaching tools to help your students understand fundamental statistical concepts such as Sampling Distributions, Confidence Intervals, Hypothesis Testing, p-values, and Power, among others.

Teaching Statistical Inference with JMP

Statistical inference – inferring population parameters from sample data – is a central component of statistics education. This webinar will guide you in using JMP to teach core statistical inference techniques. We demonstrate tools for generating point and interval estimates of common parameters and for conducting hypothesis tests using both traditional parametric methods and resampling/randomization techniques. We also review JMP’s interactive concept applets and other resources for teaching statistical inference.

Teaching Exploratory Data Analysis with JMP

Many classroom data analysis exercises involve a clean data set, clearly defined question, and single analysis. But real-world data analysis isn’t always so straightforward. Instead, it often involves some form of data exploration: initially assessing data integrity, searching for patterns with whichever graphs or analyses are needed, formulating new questions based on initial findings, and so forth. Teaching this exploratory process helps prepare students for the real-world data analysis challenges they will face after graduation. This webinar will help you build this important skill into your course by reviewing JMP tools for exploring data visually and statistically as well as for assessing data integrity. We also review relevant teaching resources.

Teaching Regression and ANOVA with JMP

Regression and ANOVA are central to statistics education across many disciplines. JMP’s interactive, graph-first interface makes it a strong tool for teaching these foundational techniques and the concepts underlying them. This webinar reviews JMP tools for simple and multiple regression and for one-factor and factorial ANOVA. We also review relevant JMP teaching resources, including case studies, tutorial videos, and interactive concept applets.

Teaching Advanced Regression with JMP and JMP Pro

A solid foundation in ordinary least squares (OLS) regression will take students a long way in their careers. Yet, many will someday encounter situations that OLS cannot readily handle. Perhaps the response distribution is non-normal. Or perhaps the predictors are highly correlated or outnumber the observations. Or maybe there are so many possible models that they need a principled way to select the best one. In these situations, familiarity with advanced regression techniques is critical. This webinar guides you in using JMP and JMP Pro to teach several advanced regression methods: generalized linear models, stepwise regression, and regularized regression. Emphasis is on JMP Pro’s Generalized Regression platform.

Teaching Categorical Data Analysis with JMP

JMP includes a range tools that are helpful in teaching categorical data analysis concepts and techniques, including confidence intervals and hypothesis tests on proportions, contingency analyses, logistic regression, and more. This webinar will provide an overview of these tools along with some teaching-oriented tips along the way, and it will also provide a brief review of JMP's free teaching resources related to categorical data analysis. By the end, you'll be better prepared to use JMP to teach categorical data analysis in your course.

Teaching Predictive Modeling with JMP Pro

Predictive modeling is a core part of education in data science, business analytics, and other domains. JMP Pro includes machine learning algorithms commonly taught in this area, including decision trees, neural networks, support vector machines, k nearest neighbors, and more. It also includes tools for model tuning, validation, comparison, and deployment both inside and outside of JMP (e.g., in Python), and all are implemented in JMP's interactive, no-code interface that makes powerful techniques accessible to a wide range of students. This webinar demonstrates how to use JMP Pro's predictive modeling tools in the classroom and will highlight free teaching resources available to complement your course.

Research with JMP

Cleaning and Preparing Data for Analysis

Researchers are intimately familiar with the amount of work often needed to clean and prepare data so it’s ready to perform specific statistical analyses. At times, these efforts can take quite a bit more time than the analyses themselves. In this webinar, a statistical scientist from JMP demonstrates a variety of easy-to-use tools to help expedite these efforts. Topics include importing data, recoding and transforming variables, filtering data, and recording/automating operations, among others.

Tools for Data Exploration

Each new data set we encounter brings with it the need for initial data exploration. Before building models or running tests, we need to summarize the data numerically and graphically, screen for patterns or anomalies, and ensure that the data are suitable for further analysis. Put more generally, we need to "get to know" our data. In this webinar, you’ll learn JMP tools and techniques you can use for  the initial exploration of every new data set you analyze.

Graph Builder and Beyond: Data Visualization with JMP

This webinar is for any academic looking to visualize their data, either for data exploration or for presentation and publication. We demonstrate how to make a variety of basic and specialized graphs in Graph Builder, with additional graphing platforms covered in the accompanying JMP Journal file. Learn how to create effective data visualizations easily, without writing any code.

This webinar focuses on constructing different types of graphs. To learn how to customize graph aesthetics and export in high quality formats for presentations or publications, see Producing Pubilcation-Quality Graphics.

Producing Publication-Quality Graphics

Research publications and presentations call for high-quality data visualizations, often following specific formatting requirements, aesthetic preferences, or other customization needs. While most JMP users are aware of JMP's strength in exploratory graphing, fewer are aware that JMP also is capable of producing highly customized, publication-quality graphs. In this webinar, you'll learn basic and advanced techniques for customizing graph formats and aesthetics as well as how to export graphs in high-quality image formats that can be resized without becoming blurry or pixelated. You'll also see how to perform extremely fine customizations on JMP graphs after exporting them, opening up a nearly infinite level of customization.

Building, Diagnosing, and Interpreting Linear Regression Models

Linear regression modeling is one of the most widely used statistical tools in academic research. Applying this foundational technique effectively requires a degree of technical knowledge regarding model construction, diagnostics, and interpretation. This webinar, which is appropriate for novice to intermediate linear modelers, will help you build the technical knowledge to be able to confidently use linear regression models in your work. We'll see how to: build standard least squares regression models with a mix of continuous and categorical factors, diagnose and address common problems with regression models, and interpret model parameters appropriately.

Designing Quantitative Research Studies

Designing research studies involves important statistical considerations regarding study structure, sample size, accounting for covariates, and more. In this webinar, we demonstrate several methods useful in research study design: determining the amount of data to collect, designing multifactor experiments, and sequential experimentation strategies. Though methods for analyzing data are presented, focus will be more on strategies for designing and running research studies.

Statistical Analyses for Comparison Research Studies

Many research studies involve testing for and quantifying the differences between treatments. These studies could consist of a simple A/B comparisons of a single factor all the way to exploring the impact that multiple factors including their potential interactions have on an outcome. In this webinar, a statistical scientist from JMP demonstrates a variety of tools in JMP that researchers can use to design comparative studies and perform the proper analyses needed to determine if there are statistical differences across treatments.

Research Methods with JMP: Clustering, Factor Analysis, and SEM

In this webinar we will explore techniques needed for Research Methods, including high-dimensional data visualization and modeling using JMP's graphing and multivariate analysis platforms (e.g. Multivariate, Cluster, PCA, Factor Analysis, and SEM).

Using JMP to Analyze Data with Many Variables:

Sept 15th, 2020. Presented by: Kevin Potcner

In the webinar you will learn tools in JMP that can analyze data with a large number of variables. Techniques will include: 1. Using animation-based visualization to explore data over time (using Bubble Plot). 2. Performing a large number of statistical tests simultaneously to find those response variables that result in statistically significant results (using Response Screener). 3. Finding the variables that most impact a response when there are more variables than observations (using Bootstrap Forest). 4. Comparing variation between two groups of highly-dimensional data (using Principal Component Analysis).

Analyzing Functional (aka Curve) Data with JMP Pro

Researchers in numerous domains often encounter functional data, or one continuous measure that unfolds across another. Prominent examples include chemical spectra, financial series, and sensor data; think any data where the unit of analysis is not a single point, but a curve. Functional data analysis (FDA) offers techniques to analyze these curves in order to characterize their shapes and to understand how other variables affects their shapes, how their shape characteristics affect other variables, and even how to optimize their shapes. JMP Pro's Functional Data Explorer  enables researchers to use FDA techniques to solve analytic problems involving this potentially challenging type of data. This webinar will provide an overview of FDA and Functional Data Explorer in order to help you add FDA to your research tool belt.

Genomics Research with JMP Pro

JMP Pro 17 marked a significant change in how genomic data analysis is performed in JMP. New platforms were introduced for genetic marker analysis and breeding simulations, and several existing platforms were optimized for the handling of large, wide data sets. Unlike the specialized JMP Genomics software, these new features are built directly into JMP Pro and do not require a SAS backend. This webinar demonstrates how to apply JMP Pro in genomics research through case studies on Differential Gene Expression and GWAS.

Tools for Reproducibility and Automation

Reproducibility of statistical results is paramount in scientific research. Many researchers use code-based software in part for this very reason: code both documents and executes the exact steps needed to reproduce an analysis. Even with its point-and-click interface, JMP provides several ways to capture and re-execute JSL code for your actions, offering the best of both worlds: the ease of point-and-click and the inherent reproducibility of code.

This webinar demonstrates several tools for reproducibility in JMP, including Workflow Builder, a new tool in JMP 17 for automatically recording and re-executing point-and-click actions, as well as for applying those recorded actions to new data sets.

JMP Integration and Extensibility

In this webinar we explore many ways to extend core JMP functionality through its integration with R and Python. We show how to connect JMP to R and Python, how to create your own add-ins for JMP that take advantage of these connections, and where to find more examples and help on this topic. We also reference the JMP integration with SAS, CAS, and Matlab, and even code-generation in Python, C, SAS, SQL, and Javascript.

This webinar is geared for JMP users who need an analysis available only in R or Python, or users of R and Python who also want to make use of time-saving, interactive, and powerful features in JMP, as well as JMP users who want to package a JMP GUI front-end for an R or Python routine, to allow other JMP users to “use” R and Python in a JMP point-and-click interface.
