Types of Services

We offer free and fee-based services.

Free Service

For the free service, we provide information about available analytical and instructional resources. We also provide statistical and technological advice so that researcher may independently analyze their own data.  For the free service, we only provide insight and will not carry out the statistical analysis. We will provide information about available analytical and instructional resources. As consultants, we will suggest various analytical approaches that can be used to analyze the data along with their pros and cons. The final decision on the statistical method to use is up to the researcher and their team.
