Measurement_Uncertainty_Course_Uncertainty_ConceptWe are glad to announce that the on-line course Estimation Measurement Uncertainty in Chemical Analysis will during the Spring semester 2015 be offered as a free on-line course (so called MOOC) to participants from all over the world. The course will be running during Mar 02 – Apr 12, 2015 and is open for registration.

The course gives the main concepts and mathematical apparatus of measurement uncertainty estimation and explains in detail two principal approaches to measurement uncertainty estimation – the ISO GUM modeling approach (the “bottom-up” approach) and the single-lab validation approach as implemented by Nordtest (the “top-down”) approach.

The course contains close to 50 short video lectures, schemes, practical examples, calculation files and numerous self-tests (among them also full-fledged measurement uncertainty calculation exercises). The full course material is accessible from the web page

During the online course period the online materials will be supplemented by discussion forum and possibility to ask questions from the teachers, as well as by tests and exercises that will be graded (and will jointly determine the final grade). The students who register to the course will be enrolled as guest students at UT and will eventually get one ECTS credit and a certificate form University of Tartu if they will successfully pass the course. In order to pass the course the registered participants have to take six graded tests and get higher than 50% score. These tests are available to registered participants via the Moodle e-learning platform.

This course can be used via web by anyone who wishes to improve the knowledge and skills in measurement uncertainty estimation.
