August 18th 10AM-Noon
We can use technology to help draw conclusions and generate theories from large amounts of data, data in the form of numbers and text. This workshop will introduce four tools that can facilitate and extend this analysis: 1) Qualtrics—a survey creation tool; 2) Atlas.ti—a qualitative analysis software for interview transcripts, open-ended questions, video, and other language-based documents; 3) pivot tables in Excel—an Excel feature for quickly organizing and comparing large data sets; and 4)SPSS Statistics—a tool for statistical analysis.
In this workshop we will work with a set of qualitative and quantitative data work from collection to analysis. The workshop will cover acquiring the software and licensing options, the key features of each tool for examining a data set, and working between the different tools. We will also touch on different methodological approaches to data analysis. You can participate as an observer or work hands-on during the time.
10:00-11:30--Demonstration of the four tools
11:30-Noon—Open lab Q and A. This is a time for participants to play with the software and to have individual questions answers.
