S1 Experimental vs. Correlational Designs - Dr Sabina Hulbert - Thursday 4th January, 1.30-4.45pm

  • Compares the basic principles of the two approaches to quantitative research design and reviews some of the fundamental types of experimental designs

S2 Hypothesis Testing and Inferential Statistics - Dr Sabina Hulbert - Thursday 11th January, 1.30-4.45pm

  • It will explain the principles of Null Hypothesis and Alternative Hypothesis testing within the contexts of inferential statistics. We will link concepts of point estimates, probability levels and sampling distribution of the means.

S3 Exploring Correlations and Testing Differences Between Means - Dr Sabina Hulbert - Thursday 25th January,1.30-4.45pm

  • It will provide a clear and in depth understanding of two different but equally fundamental ways to test statistical hypotheses: what is the association between two 4concepts/variables? And what is the difference between two observed sample means?

S4 Pilot studies and feasibility trials - Professor Doug MacInnes - Thursday 8th February, 9am-10.30am

  • Appreciate the reasons for undertaking a pilot or feasibility trail
  • Understand the methodological framework of a pilot or feasibility trial
  • critically evaluate the main parts of a pilot or feasibility trial process
  • differentiate between the practices and principles of a pilot or feasibility trial compared to a full scale trial.

S5 Questionnaire Design - Dr Sabina Hulbert - Thursday 8th February, 1.30-4.45pm

  • It will review the most common principles and good practices used when designing a questionnaire. It will outline the steps necessary for item generation and analysis. You will also have a chance to experience the Qualtrics online platform for designing surveys and experiments.

S6 Anova and Multiple Regression - Dr Sabina Hulbert - Thursday 22nd February, 1.30-4.45pm

  • It will address the statistical and conceptual elements of Analysis of Variance and Multiple Regression. You will be able to understand the similarities between the two analyses.

S7 Factor Analysis; Power Analysis - Dr Sabina Hulbert - Thursday 8th March, 1.30-4.45pm

  • In the first part of the session, we will learn what is factor analysis and how we can perform it. In the second part we will discuss the foundations of Power Analysis and will use Gpower to perform some computations.

S8 Resampling Statistics - Dr Sabina Hulbert - Thursday 22nd March, 1.30-4.45pm

  • A simple and easy to understand alternative to Inferential Statistics. We will explore the logic behind Resampling statistics and we will use a free to download Excel Add-in to experience resampling simulations by hand.

S9 ROC curves - Professor Doug MacInnes - Thursday 26th April, 9am-10.30am

  • Understand the basic principles of Receiver Operating Curve analyses and how to perform them

S10 Structural Equation Models - Dr Sabina Hulbert - Thursday 26th April, 1.30-4.45pm

  • It includes both a theoretical explanation of Structural Equation Models as well as the opportunity to test some models using the AMOS software.

S11 Quantitative Content Analysis - Professor Agnes Gulyas - Thursday 18th January, 11am-12.30pm

  • A general introduction focusing on quantitative applications.
