HOW TO DO ASSIGNMENT 02 SPSS
SPSS Assignment 02 Due Week 11
Hard copy only in class or on level 6
You can purchase SPSS from the following web site: It is $80 for 6 month or $114 for 12 months for Statistics Standard Grad Pack version 22.
HOW TO DO ASSIGNMENT
Because the data is already in a spreadsheet you can do Fileà Open à select the spreadsheet in SPSS and will convert all data and variables into SPSS ready for them to use as a .sav file.
You will notice they need to do some tidying up such as remove text in some of the data, check variable view for correct use of data types.
All work is done through the Analysis menu:
Analyse à Descriptive à frequencies (choose statistics and charts to do the right stats and the histogram)
Analyse à Descriptive à Q-Q Plot
Analyse à Descriptive à Correlate à Bivariate
Analyse à Descriptive à Scale à Reliability Analysis (here they need to go into the options and choose “if item deleted” to get the results they need)
All output in the spv file can be converted to a Word document by doing File à Convertà choose word document.
