A recording of this webinar will be made available within a week of the live session.

A/B testing is the process of using randomized controlled experiments on a web page or technology platform to determine which of two versions has a higher conversion rate. While this method of testing has become ubiquitous, there remain some common traps to which even the most sophisticated data scientists fall prey.

Join Ramesh Johari, Associate Professor, Stanford Department of Management Science & Engineering, as he discusses some common practices and pitfalls in A/B testing.

You will learn:

  • To analyze the output of A/B tests
  • To balance quick results with statistical significance during continuous monitoring
  • To maintain data integrity when running simultaneous experiments
