THE EMPIRICAL DATA COLLECTION AND PROCESSING AS A FACTOR OF RESEARCH ACTIVITY EFFECTIVENESS
A modern scientific development cannot be imagined without the use of a statistical methodology, which is based on the empirical research. So, it is necessary for social and economic development of the whole society. The level of young scientists’ ability to conduct the empirical research can be considered as a quality factor of their future research activities.
The preliminary analysis of young Kazakh scientists’ works showed very little applicability of systems and technology use for the processing of statistical data. The objective is to determine the main critical points in the empirical research that cause the most trouble in the applicability of the statistical research methods, systems and data processing technologies for the writing of Undergraduate level final qualifying works.
The analysis of existing empirical data processing technologies and their level of accessibility to university students was made in order to address this problem. The investigation was conducted among Undergraduate courses across 56 departments in different directions, the main reasons were identified and the analysis of possible ways to overcome the causes was made. An example of a particular case decision and simplification of the empirical data processing is also presented in the research findings.
