SPSS is a statistical software package, mainly used in the Social Sciences. It features a point and click interface which makes it easy for the user to learn. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce students to the software as well as its different functions and commands. Topics such as data entry, manipulation and description will be covered as well as the basics of statistical analysis and interpretation using SPSS. This is a great opportunity for students to learn how to analyze their own data, which is becoming an extremely valuable skill in research, academia and the workplace.
