AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES A key part of teaching is to make students able to solve and solve simple statistical problems by using SAS, in particular through the use of the online manual and examples. The section on building and presenting reports is very much taken care of. TEACHING METHODS The lessons are held in a computer lab. The language part always follows an exercise that is carried out by the students and whose solution is discussed collectively. 34 hours of the course are reserved by two external teacheres using SAS in their professions. Here are some examples and the SQL proc is introduced. SYLLABUS/CONTENT Programming in SAS: Data Steps and Proc.

ASSESSMENT METHODS Through the written test, it is evaluated the ability to draw simple SAS programs. Instead, the preparation and presentation of an activity carried out through SAS software aims at assessing self-employment and team-work skills.
