Research Methods Education Program (RMEP)


CARMA’s Research Methods and Education Program (RMEP) has been designed to provide a comprehensive educational experience for doctoral students and faculty. RMEP is based on assessments of learning for our webcast lectures, panel sessions, and short courses. Material covers a variety of quantitative and qualitative topics at introductory and advanced levels. A key objective of RMEP is to reward CARMA participants for their efforts at learning research methods.

Using assessments, participants verify their knowledge of key concepts through short multiple-choice quizzes. As each Assessment is successfully completed, the accomplishment will be recorded on the participant’s RMEP Gradebook. Participants may also receive Digital Badges based on the completion of assessments.

RMEP Assessments will be grouped by the following Modules:
