Hi all, I’d be really interested to hear what you think the best websites out there are for resources for teaching qualitative and quantitative research. I also thought that putting together a list of useful websites would be really handy for lecturers who use this site, and also for student members. So I’ll kick it off with a few of my favourites, but would be good to hear other peoples’ suggestions for good web resources they’ve come across!
This website has a huge list of sites for qualitative research, but not all include teaching resources as such http://www.nova.edu/ssss/QR/web.html
I direct people to this website quite a bit, though it’s a bit patchy http://onlineqda.hud.ac.uk/index.php
And for quants, here are some I direct people to:
http://faculty.chass.ncsu.edu/garson/PA765/statnote.htm – Quantitative (well-known and widely used in the States)
http://www.math.uah.edu/stat/ – Probability and Statistics
http://www.stat.sfu.ca/~cschwarz/MultipleChoice/ – Statistics multiple choice questions
There’s so much stuff out there, would be nice to hear from people who have tried and tested things.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts.

I am so lucky you responded; this is the type of resources I have been looking for all this time. Dynamite.
Can I please ask you a question: how far are you with your research activities, Katie?

I am Commissioning Editor for Research Methods at SAGE and not actually a social science researcher myself! But I try to help out when I can on methodspace by providing links to SAGE content and other content that I think will be useful to researchers.16th February 2012 at 6:34 pm #2698
For all you R users out there, this is a great website catalogue of a whole bunch of video tutorials on R… Really great resources here!! http://jeromyanglim.blogspot.com/2010/05/videos-on-data-analysis-with-r.html

I hope that folks will find my site to be useful.

Thanks for posting Gene! Your website looks great! Really useful!!2nd July 2012 at 11:22 am #2693Ingo RohlfingMember
For statistical purposes, I like http://www.statsoft.com/textbook/. A full statistics textbook explaining a diverse range of topics on a non-mathematical level.3rd July 2012 at 12:05 am #2692George ArgyrousMember
I regularly use the resources at statpages.org, especially the online pages for conducting statistical tests. Very handy of you have descriptive statistics an want to conduct hypothesis tests upon them.
