Research Methods for Computing

Regardless of whether you conduct research in the future, you will always be a consumer of research.  As a consumer of research, it is your responsibility to evaluate the information that is being provided to you.  Therefore, the goal of this course is to provide you with the tools necessary to not only understand how to create your on research study, but how to critically assess the different methodologies and components in various research designs.  In this course, you will be able to differentiate between different research methodologies, identify threats to validity, design questionnaires and IRB protocols, and synthesize empirical literature and theory in order to design a scientific research study.

In addition to TECH 646, this course can fulfill the research methods core requirement for the MS in CIT.
