EDP 688 SPSS Series I (3)

The goal of this course series is to prepare students with enough working knowledge to use SPSS Statistical Software to start research analyses for their graduate research projects, theses, and dissertations. This is the basic introduction course that deals with data management including creating a SPSS data file, entering data and defining all components and descriptive statistics including creating new variables and conducting analyses and presenting the results. Students will learn the materials and practice in a computer lab and review as well as practice on-line for a week before coming back to the computer lab for the summary and questions and answers section. Students will take web-based tests, and conduct a major project and a few minor projects. Students will post their projects on the web site for the corresponding section. Each student is also required to review other students’ projects and provide on-line comments and feedback to at least two other students’ projects.
