4.4 Session summary

In this session you’ve learned the fundamental elements of quantitative and qualitative analytical methods, and been introduced to mixed methods as a bridge to overcome the methodological divide. You have also seen that access to data and to data analysis skills are unevenly distributed. This inequality constitutes a broader divide, called the ‘digital divide’, and presents a global problem that, hopefully, we are contributing to address through this course.

You should now complete a short quiz to check what you’ve learned in this session. Open the quiz in a new tab or window and come back here when you’ve finished.
