The training will provide basic understanding on the quantitative methods of research. The course includes research methodology and statistical procedures. In all stages of a research project, statistics play an important role from design of research topic, analysis of findings and interpretation of results. Researchers must be aware of the various types of research work, elements of a research report and preliminaries in doing a research study.
The course topics include overview of the research process, sampling methods, exploratory data analysis and introduction to descriptive and inferential statistics. There will be lectures and presentation on research methodology, statistical procedures and use of statistical software for better and faster calculation and delivery of outputs. Individual and group workshops are part of the training curriculum to reinforce learnings gained from lectures. Output presentations by participants will be conducted to ensure that the concepts and techniques were correctly understood and applied. One computer per participant shall be observed to maximize experiential learning.
What will participants gain?
Participants will gain familiarity and level of confidence in identifying appropriate basic statistical analysis for various data types resulting from a specified research undertaking. Statistical analysis with the aid of software application and corresponding interpretations of results will also be part of the training.
