a class exercise exploring Studentsâ€™ Attitudes to Research.
The exercise will include the two main components
1. Setting up an SPSS database (this will be undertaken as part of a specific SPSS skills workshop). Please note that attendance at this workshop is strongly recommended regardless of the studentâ€™s level of skill in developing SPSS databases, as specific instructions on how to conduct descriptive statistics and â€˜t-testsâ€™ required for the report will be addressed in this workshop.
2. Producing a research report (1,500 words).
Students will be provided with completed MA/MSc studentsâ€™ attitudes to research database.
This will be on myUniHub under the MA Social Work folder and the MSC Mental health Studies/Dual Diagnosis/MSc Complementary Health folders.
