HRS434 Science Honours Research Completion (8)

In this subject, students will complete their planned Honours research. Students will be guided by their supervisor(s) to develop their knowledge, skills, and confidence as a researcher, particularly in relation to data analysis and interpretation.  Through regular communication with their supervisor(s), students will have opportunities to reflect on their collected data, analyses, and interpretations. This subject is an alternative to HRS431, which is identical to this subject except that students are allocated more time to engage in research activities in that subject; in HRS434, less research activity is required to be indicated in the student's progress reports.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this subject, students should:
  • be able to, under supervisory guidance, analyse and interpret data to address a research question;
  • be able to, in supervision conversations, reflect on their research progress, including how they are ensuring adequate analytical rigour and what meaning their emerging findings might have for their field of study/practice; and

This subject will cover the following topics:
  • Approaches to ensuring rigour in relation to qualitative and quantitative data analysis; and
  • Forms of validity in relation to drawing conclusions from qualitative and quantitative data.
