Describing and Defining Your Data

The Clinical and Translational Science Institute's (CTSI) Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Center serves as a resource for researchers at the University of Pittsburgh. Our objective is to provide education so that you can learn to effectively recognize and avoid research misconduct and understand the resources that are available to support your research. Click here for more information or to view the Fall 2020 schedule.

The Describing and Defining Your Data workshop, presented by Heather Eng, CTSI BERD is the first in a series of five workshops co-sponsored by CTSI Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design Core and the RCR Center.

This workshop series will address:

Part 1 - How to critically review your proposed data collection instruments, including issues of form design, validated vs standardized instruments, and foreign language translations.

Part 2 – How to convert the Table of Measures from your grant proposal into a tool to document data collection sources and track form development, file transfer protocols, and versioning.

Part 3 - How to create a data dictionary that can be used to build a data collection system. Topics include variable naming conventions, types, codes, dependency, and validations

(subject matter: data acquisition).

Registration is required. Please register by December 2.
