At the end of the workshop the participants will be able to:

  1. Collect data;
  2. Set up data files;
  3. Enter data into data files;
  4. Check and clean data prior to analysis;
  5. Compare my sample to my population;
  6. Address statistical issues discussed during consultation with a statistician (e.g., Type I & II errors, power, effect sizes).

Recordings will be made available for viewing following the completion of each workshop. Viewing of recordings may not be substituted for participation in live workshops.

This workshop is a part of the MERC Virtual Workshop 2024 - Series 3.
