The Analysis Factor | Choose the Right Statistical Analysis using Four Key Questions

Wednesday, January 26, 2022 / 3-4pm (ET)


There are hundreds of statistical tests available. Possibly thousands. And every colleague you ask has a (different) opinion about which one you need in your research. How do you choose which one is the right one? To figure that out, you first need to answer questions about your research question, your design, your variables, and the data itself.


Covered in this webinar:

  • The four questions you have to answer to get the analysis correct
  • The actual steps you have to take to answer each question
  • How later steps in the analysis can require revisions to your analysis plan
