Quantitative research design for a proposal


Researchers busy with a research Proposal. This could be a Master’s or Doctoral Proposal.


WHY should you consider this workshop?“To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished, is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of.” This quote is from the Statistician R.A. Fisher, this workshop will assist with the research design in order to ensure that it is correctly applied.Who should attend: Everyone considering quantitative research including lecturers, students, as well as other quantitative researchers before data is gathered.The goal of this workshop is to help prepare the student with the design of a research project to ensure that the research approach, research design, sampling and questionnaire is done in such a way that the research questions can be answered by conducting statistical analysis.Here’s some things you’re going to learn:The correct research approach, and design for the quantitative study.How to have valid and reliable constructs for the questionnaire.How to sample in the correct manner and have a large enough sample size for analysis.Which statistical techniques to use to test the research hypotheses.Make sure the research hypotheses, questionnaire and statistical analyses are aligned.What format the data must be in for statistical analysis.How to distribute the questionnaire online. An example PhD is used throughout the course.Completing this course you will have the knowledge to have your proposal ready for submitting to the research committee.
