The webinar is an introduction to quantitative data analysis that could be used by doctoral students for their thesis. Data analysis could range from a wide scope from being very simple as when we undertake descriptive statistical analysis or we could extend it to more complex analysis as when we use structural equation modelling (SEM) to undertake analysis. Since invariably most students will be looking to undertake analysis as part of their mixed methods research, the webinar will start with using descriptive statistical analysis like how to use the three averages and the dispersion; how to undertake correlational analysis; and using cross tabulations. We will also explore how to use factor analysis and also multiple regression to undertake more deep inferential analysis. Since we envisage a small number of participants, we will request for you to send us some specific analysis you are interested in to use for your thesis, and we will try and demonstrate it during the webinar.
This webinar will assist doctoral students in:
