Research students' workshop: Quantitative methods explained

This event has already taken place.

Friday 13 October 2017

Research students new to quantiative statistics are invited to attend a free workshop at Footscray Park Library, on 13 October.

In this free mini workshop, ABCs of Quantitative Methods Terminology, Research Ambassador Alessandro Garofolini will provide peer-to-peer support to research students new to quantitative statistics or wanting to revisit the fundamental terminology.

Statistical terms explained

Using graphical representations and practical examples, the Research Ambassador will guide research students in understanding statistical terms and their use (for instance, a P value set to 0.05).

Research students will get familiarised with terminology (not statistical software packages):

  • descriptive statistics
    • measure of central tendency
    • measure of dispersion
    • measure of position
  • inferential statistics
  • sample size
  • level of significance
  • study power.


Register online for the ABCs of Quantitative Methods Terminology workshop.

Upcoming workshops

The next Research Ambassador mini workshop will cover common tests (i.e. t-tests and ANOVA) and what these tests mean graphically.
