Four –Day Training on

“Applied Research Methods: Impact Evaluations—Design and Analysis”

This training is empowered with SPSS and STATA

January 17 – 20, 2022

As the development goes on, many ask on different aspects of impact of the development funds that are being used for poverty eradication, uplift thru entrepreneurship and employment, to improve access to water and sanitation (WASH), gender empowerment, and access to reproductive health services, for example. There is a set procedure to measure the impact and progress towards project outcomes at different stages of project implementation. Applied Research Methods have the tools and skills that are essential for professionals who are working on impact evaluations and on research concepts to generate empirical evidence. Below are given detailed contents of the ‘Applied Research Methods’. This training will empower participants with practical tools that are essentially used in Applied Research Methods across the world. It will also empower participants to use SPSS/STATA as a tool to analyze data collected under Applied Research.

Contents

Day I

Introduction to applied research

Different forms of applied research

Theory of change

Designing an applied research

How to make research representative?

o Sampling methods

o Methods to calculate sample

Day II

Designing principles for Impact Evaluations

How Impact Evaluations Differ from Other Research Design?

Introduction to Randomized Control Trials

Key concepts: Counterfactuals, Intention-to-treat (ITT) and Treatment-on-the-Treated (TOT), Spillover Effect, Random Assignments etc.

Case studies

Day III

Use of SPSS/STATA as a tool to analyze data

Hypothesis testing

Different forms of t test (used to show impact)

Chi-Square test

Correlation

ANOVA (One Way, Factorial ANOVA) etc.

Regression Analysis

optional (this is basic analysis)

SPSS/STATA Basics

Database development

Data entry and cleaning

Generating new variables and recoding

SPSS syntax (all manual commands will be done through syntax also)

Analysis of multiple response questions

Day 4 is dedicated to SPSS/STATA and we assume that participants will have some sort of SPSS/STATA basic knowledge. In case you also require basic SPSS/STATA modules in the training, the fourth day will be reserved for all those wishing to learn SPSS/STATA from basics.

Important Dates **

TOT on “**Applied Research**” will be held on January 17 – 20, 2022.

The final agenda and venue details will be shared with all registered participants (who paid their fees).

Program Content

The present training program has been specially designed to provide a thorough knowledge on the impact of Assistive Technology (AT) in persons with disabilities and it addresses its contribution to differently abled children and adults with Dyslexia, Autism, Down Syndrome, ADD or ADHD, with Intellectual Challenges, with Severe Learning Difficulties, with Motor Control Problems, children who are Slow Learners or are Communicatively impaired, persons who are hearing or visually impaired and generally persons who need a different approach and tools to support them.

The program provides many opportunities with lots of practical examples and case studies rather than been theoretical and will cover a big series of issues and topics with emphasis on the implementation, the use and contribution of AT. The trainees will realize that there is strong justification for the use of AT, learn of terms and definitions, work with special devices and special software (demonstration and hands-on experiences), acquire skills of basic assessment procedures and tools and will become able to integrate AT into the Individual Educational Plan (IEP) of the student/child.

 

Duration of training: 5 consecutive days, 6 hours daily.
Note: Trainees will be given a free, fully functioning in Arabic, software called SALAM (Speech and Language Acquisition Method).

Language of training: Arabic and/or English, based on participants preference.

Date: 23 – 27 May 2021
