Testing Hypothesis by Quantitative Methods

Academic research is a systemic process of collecting and analyzing data with an aim to test hypotheses that have been derived from a theory. This process often involves the use of statistical methods in data analysis. Choosing the correct statistical methods is important, as your choice determines how well you can appropriately answer your research questions and tests your hypotheses. In this webinar, I will discuss how to make this choice. I will also introduce some statistical software that can make statistical testing easy. In particular, the following issues will be discussed:

  • Types of Research Questions
  • Types of Statistical Tests
  • Test of Mediating Effects
  • Test of Moderating Effects
  • Test of Moderated Mediation or Mediated Moderation
  • Statistical Software (SPSS, AMOS, Smart PLS)
