Workshop contents and objectives

You should attend this workshop if you have no or not much skills with basic statistics and statistical packages, especially if you attend another workshop during the Summer School that requires skills with statistics and software.

The aim of this 3-day workshop is to acquire, deepen or brush-up skills with statistics and SPSS.

Topics covered

Working with SPSS (windows, menus, command language, output management)
Preparing data for analysis (data entry, data transformations, scale construction)
Descriptive statistics and data exploration (categorical and continuous variables)

Based on a combination of a series of e-learning modules, completed by short presentations and tutoring sessions adapted to the needs of the participants, you will work on your own, at your pace. We will be around to provide guidance, further explanations and help in case of difficulties. The e-learning modules of this workshop will remain available after the Summer School.
