Data analysis

Depending on the objects(s) of study, the research questions and/or hypotheses and the chosen approach (descriptive, explorative or testing), you choose a specific research method. An analysis strategy will be part of this method.

After you have prepared your sources or collected your data, you can start your analysis. Often, certain tasks that are part of the analysis strategy can be supported by specific computer programs (tools). One of the main goals of this workbench is to describe the tools that are used most frequently for this purpose in our faculty and to refer you to various relevant reference manuals and/or practical introductions.
