This course aims to acquaint participants with IBM SPSS Statistics, a popular and respected program for analyzing data that is used across a range of disciplines. The curriculum has been recently revised to not only introduce the basic functions and features of the software (including data entry and manipulation), but also to demonstrate how to conduct a range of statistical analyses. Hands-on exercises will supplement the lecture material.
The curriculum for this course is designed to be an applied introduction to a statistical program; as such, familiarity with basic statistical procedures (e.g., t-tests, ANOVA, regression) is assumed. Further, participants are encouraged to bring a USB flash drive to store their work.
