This seminar is one part of the two-part research methods and design series. This course involves a comprehensive review of the argument for good measurement. Students will survey several practical measurement techniques that are common among communications researchers. In addition, existing datasets will be explored in order to get hands-on training in quantitative data analysis including internal reliability, scaling, factor analysis, and other measurement techniques. The course focuses on the relationship between conceptualization and measurement, giving students the opportunity to begin thinking about the measurement techniques that are relevant to concepts of interest to them.
