Goodale, Uromi Manage [1].

Now that I have my data what do I do with it? Detecting diagnosing and editing data problems after data collection.

Bring your own data to this workshop and learn the basics of data screening. Work one on one with the instructor to answers these questions about your collected information.
•Do the data accurately reflect the responses of the experiment?
•Is there missing or absent data or excess data and what do I do about it?
•Does the missing data reflect an underlining unaccounted variable?
•Do some data points represent values that will misrepresent the phenomena I am studying? What do I do with these outliers?
•Does my dataset meet the statistical assumptions of the Analytical technique I will be using? What are my options if my data set does not meet the statistical assumptions?
•How do I report the data screening process in the final write up?
•What do I do to make sure that I avoid some of the problems I encountered with this data set in my next data collection effort or experiment?
