Statistical analyses are only as good as the data that go into them. This is why the majority of time on any data analysis project should be spent, not on conducting the analyses (i.e., actually running the model), but instead on the steps needed to prepare the data for analysis. There are dozens of decisions that go into data management. If not properly documented or considered, those decisions can produce erroneous results or preclude replication.
This seminar is designed to teach researchers how to prepare data for analysis in a way that is both accurate and replicable. By following these principles, your data analytic projects will be both well-planned and executed. The scope of the seminar ranges from such broad topics as developing research plans to the detailed minutia of planning variable names.
Starting March 18, we are offering this seminar as a 3-day synchronous*, remote workshop. Each day will consist of a 4-hour live lecture held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. You are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time.
Each lecture session will conclude with a hands-on exercise reviewing the content covered, to be completed on your own. An additional session will be held Thursday and Friday afternoons as an “office hour”, where you can review the exercise results with the instructor and ask any questions.
The fee of $895 includes all course materials.
