At Education Quest, our SPSS Training Course teaches you how to use SPSS to analyze Statistical data. Statistical Package for Social Science(SPSS) is the leading statistical software in the industry. This training is for individuals, companies, organizations, NGOs and government parastatals. Our SPSS tutorial training is a hand on type of statistical training. Our training will cover three sections:

  • Data Preparation
  • Descriptive Statistics
  • Inferential Statistics

Through this training you will be able to do the following

  • Build charts, scatterplots, and box plots
  • Calculate descriptive statistics such as means and standard deviations
  • Use inferential statistics such as t-tests and chi-squares
  • Enter and read data
  • Create new variables and crosstabulations
  • Model associations with correlations, contingency tables, and multiple-regression analysis
  • Format and export presentations to share your data.
