Learning outcomes

After completing the course, the doctoral student is able to analytically read research that uses quantitative research methods. S/he can assess the validity of quantitative research and the fruitfulness of the methods applied. S/he is also able to choose the quantitative research methods that best serve her/his own research task and to give justifications for choosing those particular methods. S/he learns to master the methods s/he has decided to use efficiently, reliably and responsibly. S/he can interpret and report the results of her/his analysis in a way that is appropriate to the field of science in question as well as estimate how well those methods work.


The course offers the doctoral student a comprehensive picture of quantitative research methods and it is organised in order to support the quantitative analysis of the student’s research. The courses under this heading investigate formulating the research questions into statistical questions, the justifications for choosing the most relevant analysis methods, the limitations set by the data for the applicability of particular research methods as well as matters related to conducting analyses and interpreting and reporting them.
