Cursusdoelen
After passing the course, the student can:
  1. make well-grounded decisions with regard to the empirical part of the master thesis (research design)
  2. check the requirements and assumptions of various multivariate statistical techniques and choose adequate techniques
  3. apply a suitable analytical approach
  4. report and interpret the results of multivariate analysis
  5. judge the quality of analyses and the validity of empirical findings
  6. read the methods and results section of scientific articles and draw respective conclusions 
Inhoud
This course provides students with knowledge on five multivariate statistical techniques typically used in empirical studies of design and marketing research. Specifically, students are taught to choose the adequate multivariate technique for his/her research questions, to check for the assumption of the selected technique, to autonomously conduct multivariate analyses using statistical software such as SPSS, and to interpret and report the obtained results. Moreover, students are taught to assess the results with respect to their reliability and validity.
