The Children’s Research Network held a practical workshop on 'Reporting Quantitative Findings'. This took place at our office in 9 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 on Thursday, 26th October 6-8pm.
This was the tenth workshop in the CRN Research Skills Summer School, aimed at practitioner researchers and research interested professionals, including early years educators, social workers, youth workers, teachers, international development practitioners, research consultants and early career academics. The Summer School consists of a series of workshops held on Thursday evenings, including sessions on sampling and recruitment; data collection methods; data analysis and training in different software packages; practitioner research; introduction to statistical analysis; ethics; and conducting literature searches and reviews. The full series is available here: http://www.childrensresearchne...
In this workshop on sampling and recruitment, participants learnt the best and most effective techniques for reporting on quantitative findings, including producing graphs and other statistical representations.
Participants had the opportunity to work closely with Amy Healy from Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick and work hands on with a statistical analysis software package.
This event was of interest to researchers, practitioners and service providers who are about to plan or commence or have just begun a new research project.
