About the Event

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Writing the right objectives and research questions, defining the population and parameters of interest, choosing an adequate sample using an appropriate sampling design, usage of valid and reliable study instruments and choosing a sound data collection method must be well thought at the begining of a research purpose. Many researchers fail in this area. In some manuscripts and theses, weaknesses in these aspects are very glaring showing that the researcher(s) did not start with the right foot. No statistical analyses can correct the damages made at the designing stage. The aim of this workshop is to help novice researchers to acquire knowledge and skills needed to conduct quantitative researches.
