Integrated Mixed-Methods Research With Factor Analysis:
Methods@Manchester Summer School 2015
This summer school teaches factor analysis for beginners/intermediate. It uses mixed methods too. It focuses on the use of attitude scales and indices in a mixed-methods research context. The content focuses on four topics:
• Mixed methods data management;
• Construction of a scale of attitudes;
• Factor analysis; and
• Methods of using qualitative data to strengthen an argument and make the analysis rigorous and transparent.
The school offers unique new training. This one-week event involves 28 hours of contact time of which about 5-6 hours are computer practicals led by the experienced tutor, Wendy Olsen, based on her rich previous experience. The computer practicals in Factor Analysis include SPSS (possibly including AMOS), STATA, and MPLUS software.
