I am a student and currently analyzing data collected for my thesis. I need your help on following issues: 1. Is it legitimate to use Likert scale/ Likert-type items data in parametric such as t-test, ANOVA? 2. Is it legitimate to combine (Strongly disagree + disagree, neutral, agree + strongly agree) and report as (agree, neutral and disagree) categories? Thank you in advance
South African Universities today are battling to meet the needs of a diverse group of students. Some of whom received excellent training in qualitative research and some who hardly received any training at all. To make matters worse when writing their dissertations studentslack role models and experience academic and social alienation and lack of support services. This is especially true for students who have little contact with other students and staff members.Resent research emphasized the importance of on-line learning through shared experiences and building virtual communities of learning. Apart from developing a sense of identity, cohesion and belonging needed for learning, being part of an e-learning group should help the student to foster an understanding of issues involved in qualitative research and develop the critical and reflective skills needed to write a dissertation.
In an effort to address the above mentioned problems QualiQuest a unique qualitative research e-learning site was designed for the University of Pretoria and will be facilitated by my husband, Prof Willem Schurink and myself. This site helps them to become aware of the new developments on the qualitative research horizon and it also aims to by means of e-portfolios empower the students to share their ideas and assist other students.
