This course offers an introduction to the uses and functions of the statistical software SPSS including data entry and editing, and the basics of analyses and graphs. The course is ideally suited to those with little/no experience with SPSS, but basic knowledge of statistics is advantageous.

This is a practical course that will introduce delegates to SPSS and its uses for statistical analysis through hands-on experience. The course is suitable for individuals who are new to SPSS or who feel they would benefit from a refresher course. No prior knowledge of SPSS is assumed; however, knowledge of basic statistics (e.g. p-values, significance tests) is advantageous. The course will cover the following topics:

  • Getting started with SPSS files
  • Data entry: manually and from excel
  • Editing and organising datasets
  • SPSS options and functions
  • Descriptive statistics
  • Graphical displays
  • Parametric significance tests
  • Nonparametric significance tests

Everyone wishing to attend should ensure SPSS is installed and licensed on their computer. Where possible, we recommend using a recent version of SPSS (e.g. version 25) for maximum compatibility with the notes provided during the course.

Please note: this is not a statistical theory course, it is intended to teach delegates about the SPSS software. As such, dedicated time cannot be given to describing and explaining theory and statistical tests (these are taught on our 5 day course - 'Introduction to research methods and statistics').
