Researchers across the country can now carry out their work faster through the newly launched Measurement, Learning and Evaluation (MLE) unit at the University of Ghana.
The unit is a centre where research data can be managed, stored and analyzed locally with robust data security and back-up systems.
Whether in Walewale or Techiman, a researcher could forward his or her socio-economic research findings to the unit for analysis and processing, Director of Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER), Felix Asante told Joy Business.
In the past, when a researcher has finished a questionnaire, he/she is compelled to keep it until he/she returns to Accra before getting someone to input and analyse it.
However, with the MLE unit once a researcher has finished with an interview, they only have to submit, their data to be analysed.
The turnaround time in analysing research findings would be greatly reduced with this new unit.
It is open to any institution in the country, in the University of Ghana and any other institution in the world.
