CMI Short Courses
This course will show participants how to use statistical analysis software, in this instance SPSS. In the course, participants will be introduced to the SPSS environment as well as useful key concepts (such as cases, variables, values, and levels of measurement) to perform basic descriptive data analysis. A key component of the course involves getting familiar with basic SPSS data analysis commands in hands-on sessions. By the end of the day, participants will be familiar with the software; know how to open a data file, enter data, and do basic data manipulations; and be able to produce simple descriptive statistics, one- and two-way tables, as well as simple graphs.
This is a foundation course that does not require any previous experience of SPSS and that will provide participants with the appropriate background to progress to other CMIST courses, particularly Introduction to Data Analysis 1 and Introduction to Data Analysis 2.
