Research Process: Getting Started

General tutorial for students new to the academic research process.

How to use this tutorial

Welcome to the Research Process: Getting Started tutorial!  This tutorial will introduce you to the key concepts and skills you'll need to begin your research process.  

To begin, take the Pre-test.  This test will evaluate what you already know about research.  This is not graded, it is just an evaluative tool.  You can email your results to your professor or librarian and yourself.

Move through sections 1-5 at your own pace.  There are videos to watch and tutorials to read through.  

When you are finished, take the post-test.  This test will evaluate whether this tutorial was effective in increasing your knowledge about the research process.  You can email the results to your professor or librarian and yourself.
