FDP – Research Methodology and Data Analysis through SPSS
Research plays an important role in development of the society by increasing the quantum of knowledge and solving crucial problems in different areas of social sciences. The recent research movements are generally based on recognition of need for critical. The traditional emphasis on factual knowledge and singular truths is diminishing and the knowledge generation and cultural interchange is increasing. This necessitates the awareness of research tools.
Many researchers in the social sciences use SPSS to perform data analysis, but often formal training in use of the software and how to interpret output is severely lacking. This workshop using SPSS aims to eliminate the quantitative skills deficit which exists among many social science researchers.
This FDP will concentrate on transforming participants into competent and confident users of SPSS to enable them to conduct independent data analysis for their own research needs. Working with datasets, the course will cover widely-used statistical methods including descriptive statistics, data visualisation, statistical inference, categorical data, correlation and regression, analysis of variance and multivariate analysis (such as factor analysis).OBJECTIVES To create awareness and knowledge about research process i.e. meaning, types of research types method, selection of research problem, review of related literature, hypotheses, sampling, research tools, parametric and non- parametric tests. To give training in the use of SPSS package. To enhance the quality of research in the B schools. TOPICS TO BE COVERED Meaning of research, types and areas of research, statement of objective. Tools of research and their standardization. Descriptive and historical research. Descriptive and Experimental research design. Parametric tests and non-parametric tests. Use of SPSS package.
