Course Overview

Learn how to write a great quantitative market research report, even if you are new to report writing.

What makes for a great quantitative research report? It needs to synthesize and present survey research findings in a way that your audience will find useful and memorable. You want your audience to understand and retain key research findings and to maximize the chance they will put them to use.

The options for interpreting, synthesizing, and reporting quantitative data are taught here in a fun, practical way.

In this market research training program, Instructor Kathryn Korostoff teaches students how to interpret quantitative data to address project objectives, and how to report the findings using various text, visual displays, and even multimedia approaches.


  • This class includes homework assignments, and students should be prepared to spend one hour per week on homework.
  • This class does not include how to conduct Quantitative Data Analysis; that is a separate class titled, “Quantitative Data Analysis for Survey Research.”
  • This class teaches a PowerPoint approach to reporting.
  • Prerequisites: At least two years of market research professional experience OR completion of Market Research 101.

Upon course completion, you will be able to:

  • Craft a plan that will mitigate the risk of schedule slips
  • Optimize reporting formats for different audiences
  • Synthesize data efficiently
  • Develop key findings that will inspire insights
  • Deliver bad news constructively

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