Which Data to Answer Which Kind of Questions? Taking Advantage of QICSS Resoucres

Since 2006, McGill researchers can freely access on campus nearly a hundred of Statistics Canada micro-detailed databases in the Quebec Interuniversity Centre for Social Statistics (QICSS) Laboratory in Peterson Hall. Several of these databases allow researchers to explore issues relevant to the fields of educational psychology and learning sciences.

The goal of this presentation is to provide an overview of:

  • the context surrounding the creation of QICSS and its objectives;
  • the content and research possibilities of the datasets most used by researchers in psycho-education;
  • the requirements to obtain access to the data, the work environment and mode of  operation of the laboratory;
  • the training, scientific and knowledge transfer activities organised by QICSS.

This seminar will also be an opportunity to identify the services and activities that could be developed by QICSS to better respond to the needs and expectations of faculty and graduate students involved in the Learning Sciences program in Educational and Counselling Psychology.
