Hello! I’ve started to curate some good resources for those that want to learn a little more about research methodology for their jobs. This is mainly aimed at newbies with no formal or academic research education or training.
Need to work out a statistical sample size? Here’s a sample size generator: https://www.surveysystem.com/sscalc.htm
Not sure what statistical test to use? No problem! Bill Trochim’s Center for Social Research Methods has got a great little took for helping you find your way the correct stats test: http://www.socialresearchmethods.net/selstat/ssstart.htm
Want to learn more about specific statistical formulas and methods? They are pretty much all here: http://www.statsoft.com/Textbook
This resource from University of South Carolina will help beginners and those out of practice get back into designer research and writing research proposals. The UI could use a little work but all and all it’s a very useful tool: http://libguides.usc.edu/writingguide/purpose
CIRT has a one pager for those of you that would like a brief idea on how to design research. https://cirt.gcu.edu/research/developmentresources/tutorials/researchdesigns
What are the different types of research methods, I hear you say?
Great intro video on research methods
I’ll update this as I come across new resources but if you find any yourself, please share below or ping me on twitter.
