Students: Graduate Research

Student initiated projects are supported by the availability of various tools and workshops on how to use them.

REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a free and secure web application that OISE faculty and researchers can use to build and manage online surveys and databases. While REDCap can be used to collect virtually any type of data, it is specifically geared to support online or offline data capture for research studies and operations.
  1. Students request access for REDCap use by completing the REDCap Account Request Form for Research Projects.
  2. Self-enroll with UTORMFA. The University of Toronto is enhancing the security and protection of your account with multi-factor authentication (MFA), a security enhancement that requires two sets of unique credentials accessing an account: your UTORid paired with a code sent to your mobile phone. Learn more about MFA, and enroll, at U of T’s utormfa page.
  3. Or, make an appointment with Education Commons to pick up an e-token (a device that allows secure connectivity).

Workshops and research design consultations are available to OISE researchers on the topics of

  • developing design and methodology for graduate theses and research projects;
  • developing and validation of surveys, questionnaires and measurement scales;
  • conducting qualitative and quantitative data analysis;
  • communicating results (including tables, charts, and graphs) for research reports and peer-reviewed publications.

Registration for these workshops is available online for a fee.

Consultations are available with OISE statistical consultant Olesya Falenchuk.
