Welcome to the Research Methods for Health Sciences course. This course provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to design a research project and present it in the form of a research proposal. There are 6 modules to complete, which provide an introduction to: Module 1: Introduction to Research Methods Module 2: Research Questions, Research Objectives, and Hypotheses Module 3: Quantitative Studies Module 4: Qualitative and Mixed Studies Module 5: Literature Reviews and Critical Appraisals of Research Module 6: Scientific Skills The completion time for this course is estimated at 143 hours, consisting of 27 hours of learning resources, 55 hours for time to study content and assimilation, and 61 hours of participating in learning activities and quizzes, to assist the learners in the synthesis of learning materials. This course is equivalent to 3 credit hours. The course requires the completion of all activities i.e., quizzes, peer activities, discussion forums, and a final assignment that are needed to complete the course. At the end of each module, there is a practice quiz of ten (15) multiple-choice questions. After you’ve completed each lesson, quiz, peer activity, and learning activity, you will have access to a final exam consisting of fifty (50) multiple-choice questions and a chance to evaluate this course. The final exam will be designed so that participants can have multiple opportunities to answer correctly until the required score of 70% or higher is obtained. Once you’ve passed that last test, you will be able to download a certificate of completion from Ecorbit Academy and our course’s co-sponsoring organizations (listed above). We keep all of your personal information confidential, never sell any of your information, and only use anonymized data for research purposes. Also, we are happy to report your testing information and share your work with anyone (your school, employer, etc.) at your request.
