Tight internal budgets and shrinking external funding make the competition for external dollars as fierce as ever. Researchers must present strong proposals with cutting-edge methodology to rise above the crowd.
That’s where we come in. With a combination of services unique to education and human development research, we offer consulting on everything from developing a hypothesis and selecting the appropriate statistical analysis to the development of data collection protocols and reporting templates.
With specialized expertise in quantitative research methods, our work helps you achieve your research goals. Though we primarily serve graduate students, faculty, and researchers in CEHD, we also work with external partners.
SUMMER 2019 WORKSHOP
Foundations and Applications of R (FAR): Tidying, Visualizing, Modeling
August 12-16, 2019
Designed to support social scientists seeking to develop new, or deepen their existing, R programming skills for analyzing complex social science data. No prior experience with R or any other programming language is necessary. We’ll start with fundamental concepts and practices to get everyone on the same page, and then dive into visualization and advanced analysis.
