About:

The course, RES/720, builds on the student's knowledge of quantitative research methods and statistics. The appropriate selection of a research method, design, and analysis - experimental, quasi-experimental, and correlational is reviewed. A study's alignment, instrumentation, and threats to reliability and validity will also be discussed. Competency A: Explain the nature of the quantitative research method. Competency B: Demonstrate understanding of research steps from identifying a research problem through to presenting research findings. Competency C: Apply an appropriate quantitative research design and analysis to a substantive area of interest. Competency D: Align inferential statistical procedures and data collection techniques with appropriate types of research designs. Competency E: Distinguish among types of variables and levels of measurement in an analysis. Competency F: Determine an appropriate population and sample within the area of study. Competency G: Evaluate the reliability and validity of instrumentation and the need to pilot test new or modified instruments. Competency H: Evaluate the threats to internal and external validity in research studies. Competency I: Demonstrate understanding of how to present research findings for publication.

This graduate-level course is 8 weeks This course is available to take individually or To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
