Acqui & Analy Research Data
In this course students will learn, by experience, the entire quantitative research process, from designing an initial instrument to reporting on the results of data analysis of the responses to the instrument. Students learn to design a survey instrument to meet a specific goal, enter the resulting responses into a statistical software package, 'clean' the data, obtain appropriate descriptive and inferential data analyses, and prepare a report describing the major finding. The course will involve a combination of individual assignments and group project work. Students taking this course will be required to obtain a copy of the statistical software package Minitab 14. This software is available only for the Windows operating system and so students must have access to a PC.
