KUK News

Kuruksherta University announced Three Day National Workshop on RESEARCH METHODOLOGY AND USE OF SPSS PACKAGE 21,22 & 23 March, 2014 at Faculty Lounge K.U. Kurukshetra

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Research plays an important role in development of the country through increasing the quantum of knowledge and in solving various crucial problems in different areas. Many teacher educators and researchers are also interested in undertaking research and guiding their students in different areas including education, but they lack the needed know how and the application of appropriate statistics used.
The recent research movements are generally based on recognition of need for critical inquiry and meaning in educational action. The traditional emphasis on factual knowledge and singular truths is diminishing and the knowledge generation and cultural interchange is increasing. This necessitates the awareness of qualitative research also.
In the era of computers, it is the high time to use computers in our statistical calculations, through the use of SPSS package during our research project. No doubt, before the advent of SPSS Package, many researchers have been using computers for their statistical analysis of data, but that process was not economical in terms of time, money and efforts.

1. choose and state the research problem related to quantitative and qualitative research;
