Course Overview

Learn how to write a great qualitative research report, even if you have never done so before.

What makes for a great qualitative research report? It needs to synthesize and present qualitative research findings in a way that your audience will find useful.  And that is not as easy as it may sound. Qualitative information can be complex and rich—analyzing it properly takes discipline, and presenting it so that others can grasp key results requires careful planning.

The options for analyzing and reporting qualitative research results are taught here in a fun, practical way.

In this market research training program, Instructor Kathryn Korostoff will teach students how to analyze qualitative information in order to address project objectives, and how to report the findings using various text, visual display, and multimedia approaches. This is useful for learners who are writing for internal or external clients. 

Upon course completion, you will be able to: 

  • Create a timeline for writing a great research report
  • Choose the best structure for a qualitative research report
  • Use structured analysis to ensure thorough synthesis of your qualitative data
  • Produce a report that will ignite insights

As a student, you get lots of helpful videos, readings and reference material.
