Data analysis workshops
A series of data analysis and implementation workshops are held in regional venues each year. Additional workshops, discussions and further guidance are provided on request.
All Data Analysis Workshops are on hold due to COVID-19 related restrictions.
Data analysis tutorials
Data analysis tutorials for staff and students are being developed at present.
There are many more possibilities for further analysis of the data than can be carried out by participating institutions and/ or the central StudentSurvey.ie function. Third party researchers/ organisations and other interested parties are encouraged to contact the Project Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss these possibilities or to propose ideas for future research.
Additionally, both of the StudentSurvey.ie datasets are archived with the Irish Social Sciences Data Archive annually and may be accessed by request.
