This workshop covers the process of writing and testing survey questions in depth. There is no way to be certain that respondents will interpret your questions exactly as you intend and provide the answers you want, but this workshop will introduce what is known about the psychology of survey response and generally accepted best practices for question writing. Topics include how survey mode affects question writing, the potential for bias in questions, appropriate answer options, and writing survey questions for experiments. The workshop will conclude with a review of methods for testing questions to ensure their validity and reliability.

SSRI~ Workshop: Qualitative Data Collection Techniques

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop provides an overview on the rationales and methods for qualitative data collection. Qualitative research methods, including in-depth interviews, focus groups, archival analysis, and participant observation, vary considerably in the resources and time required to execute them reliably, and in the types of data they generate. Which data collection techniques are appropriate to which kinds of research questions and projects, and how do you execute these methods well? How are issues of reliability and validity considered and weighed in qualitative research? This research workshop will provide an introduction to a range of qualitative research methods as well as an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.

DVS Workshop: Data Visualization with Excel

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-02-07 18:30

1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Bostock Library 023(Library Classroom)
For many basic charts and graphs, Excel is one of the easiest ways to create a data visualization. Figuring out how to get Excel to produce exactly the chart you want, however, can be a bit of a headache. In this workshop, we will learn how to create and modify many different charts within Excel, in addition to learning how PivotTables can help arrange the data in the best way for the chart we want. We will also cover how to get the best results when taking charts out of Excel and putting them into documents, presentations, and other programs. Note: this workshop focuses on the charting capabilities of Excel and starts from a beginning level. While some experience with Excel is encouraged, this is not an advanced Excel workshop. Recordings of additional Excel workshops: - Basic Data Cleaning and Analysis for Data Tables - Advanced Excel for Data Projects
