Quantitative Phase

So I've already pilot tested my instrument and already distributed my survey to scholars.

I even e-mailed Dr. Mike Linacre to inquire on how I should analyze the results of my IRT analysis in my instrument.

I'll get back to RASCH analysis and WINSTEPS tutorial on a later time.

But for now, I need to study now on the statistical analysis I'll be doing for my quantitative data.

I realized I should be doing "Ordinal Regression Analysis" instead of multiple regression analysis because my survey is a Likert Scale.

I'll worry about having access to SPSS on a later time too. I have statistica but I've always gotten used to SPSS.

Well, here goes the quantitative phase of my thesis... And I still have a qualitative phase. People say that my thesis is not a dissertation but I think I just gotten used to a mix method study. One isn't complete without the other.

Lord just let me pass on time.

Thesis Update

On Friday, October 30, 2015, I started distributing my initial survey for pilot testing.


By November 1, 2015, I was able to reach my targeted number of participants (and even growing).

I can't believe I've gathered enough participants over the weekend.

I was actually giving myself a week for data gathering.

And now, I already have the revised survey and it's ready for the distribution once my mentor gives me the go signal.

The power of networking indeed.

I'm so grateful.

I suddenly realized why God gave me chance to work in my university. Even if it was just one school year. The relationships I have created with the Lasallian Scholars have been helpful and the key behind my thesis. Heck, even my whole thesis is about them.

I am still at awe at how many students supported me in answering and spreading the word about my thesis survey.

I can't believe it.

Thank you so much my fans! <3 hehehe

Kidding aside, THANK YOU SO MUCH.. I don't know how I can make it up to you guys.
