SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) is a comprehensive statistical and data management package for analysts and researchers. Its statistical capabilities alone range from simple percentages to complex analyses of variance, multiple regressions, and general linear models as well as to generate tabulated reports, charts and plots of distributions and trends.

SPSS is a statistics and data analysis program for businesses, governments, research institutes, and academic organizations. During this event we will take a practical, visual, and non-mathematical approach to SPSS. From importing spreadsheets to creating regression models, to exporting charts, this course covers all the basics, with an emphasis on clarity, interpretation, communicability, and application. Education Quest will help you:

  • 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.
