  • SPSS Classes Offered – Spring 2012

    SPSS Banner

    The Teaching, Learning and Technology Center is offering free workshops on SPSS software for the spring semester.  SPSS (originally, Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) is a widely used application for statistical analysis in the social sciences.

    This software is commonly used by graduate students and faculty, along with market, health and government researchers. Even though this software is not standard on the SHU laptops, students can obtain a copy upon request if associated with an assignment in a specific class. 

    Space is limited and these courses have been very popular in the past so be sure to reserve your seat today!  This workshop is offered to all students, faculty and administrators.

    Level 1 SPSS: Descriptive Statistics and Coding

    This course will cover the first stages of using SPSS which includes creating a data set and then describing the data.
