Nina Zdorova participated at Workshop on Quantitative Linguistics Methods
The international online Workshop on Quantitative Linguistics Methods was aimed at researchers with different background in quantitative research. Thus, both basic and advanced topics were covered during the workshop. The workshop was divided into three parts: planning a study, visualising data in R, and analysing data (given by Jesse Egbert, Tove Larsson and Luke Plonsky correspondingly). A memeber of HSE Center for Language and Brain Nina Zdorova participated (PDF, 141 Kb) at this workshop.
The first part covered the questions like formulating research questions and hypothesis of the study, choosing a method and data collection planning. Workshop participants learnt how to work with the Daniel Dixon's application Sampling Investigator (Dixon, 2020) designed for calculating the necessary minimal sample size for your study.
The second part was more interactive as participants coded in R together with a speaker learning how to visualize data in R in graphs and work with descriptive statistics.
The last part of the workshop covered interpretation of results in quantitative study and discussed possible issues in it.
Thus, within one day workshop participants repeated basic concept of conducting a qualitative research and upgraded their skills in data analysis.
