Target is to provide quantitative methodological competences, regarding to the construction of quantitative research instruments such as surveys or observations. It is necessary to investigate in relevant sources, to construct hypotheses, to operationalize them in an appropriate form, to collect data, statistically analyze them and finally create a serious report.

 

Project seminar with strong practical relevance. The construction of quantitative research instruments includes aspects of building research questions and hypothesis, the description of the main population or the construction of a sampling design. Students are introduced to the issues of measurement, classical test theory, term definition and operationalization. Theconstruction of research instrumente includes cognitive-psychological aspects, item - and scale construction or the realization as paper-pencil, telephone or oral data collection. Basics of descriptive statistics concern mainly the simple but correct data analysing and the creation of tables and plots.

 

Project groups. Some theoretical Lectures and practice by building learning groups. The practical parts will ensure the immediate implementation of the learned in the practice. Students write a small but high-quality research or evaluation report with introduction, method description, description of results and discussion.

 

Students write a small but high-quality research or evaluation report with introduction, method description, description of results and discussion. The seminar includes also the presentation and the defence of the own work and the results in front of an 'critical audience'.
