Quantitative Research: A Brief Review

Feeling comfortable reading and digesting quantitative research reports is difficult for many people because it requires the use of concepts and information that we may not employ in everyday clinical practice settings. Refreshing that content and its associated skills from time to time can help to make research more available, and help the therapist critique and get more out of professional reading.

Learning Objectives:

  1.  Understand the 3 things needed to evaluate the “goodness” of quantitative research studies, including the logic of research design.

  2. Articulate how internal and external valiity are judged

  3. Understand the basics of statistical inference
