Quantitative Research Workshops


Fundamentals of Quantitative Methods 1: When and How to Use Statistical Techniques in your Research
Date: Wednesday, September 25, 2019
Time: 10:30—12:00pm
Location: MSR 160 CEGE Conference room
Facilitator: Dr. Marilu Isiordia

What to expect from this workshop. Struggling to decide whether quantitative methods are appropriate for your Master’s or Doctoral research project? Or, perhaps you have decided to use quantitative methods, but are not sure what inferential test(s) to implement? This is an interactive work-shop that will cover fundamentals about quantitative methods. Specifically, this workshop will provide you with the conceptual understanding of when quantitative methods are suitable for research and guide you in selecting ap-propriate statistical techniques for hypothesis testing. You will leave this workshop ready to design your statistical data analysis!

Fundamentals of Quantitative Methods 2: Analysis of Mean Differences
Date: Monday, October 21st, 2019
Time: 4:00—6:00pm
Location: MSR 160 CEGE Conference room
Facilitator: Dr. Marilu Isiordia


What to expect from this workshop. Does your Master’s or Doctoral research project aim to test whether there is a difference between two or more groups, such as between males and females or experimental condi-tions? This is an interactive workshop that will review common statistical procedures used in hypothesis tests involving mean differences. Specifically, this workshop will center on the practical use of t-tests and how this family of tests are used to assess the difference between two population means, based on the observed difference between two sample means. Additionally, intro-duction to analysis of variance will be provided. You will leave this workshop ready to evaluate mean differences in your own research!
