Quantitative Analysis for Academic Research

A Webinar

Presented by: Michael Guo

Thursday 11th January 2022

What this webinar is about

The aim of the webinar is to provide participants with a way of dealing with the collection and analysis of quantitative data in order to convert data into knowledge.
Quantitative analysis of data is a central issue for many if not most masters and doctoral students. This requires some familiarity with statistics and with data modelling as well as some knowledge of appropriate software systems with which to conduct the analysis. There are several software products available and one of the more established and utilised is SPSS.

This webinar provides useful guidance for handling some of the challenges associated with quantitative data analysis and demonstrates how these can be tackled using SPSS, which is available at a large number of universities.
