Less Statistical & More Usage 0f SPSS

 

RCTD is organizing an international research workshop "SPSS Essentials-SPSS Statistical Analysis Made Easy" on 5-6 April, 2016 (9:30am-5:00pm GST) through High Definition Video Conferencing. The workshop is designed for the Beginners who have very basic level of understanding of the inferential Statistics and usage of Software SPSS. The workshop is a step by step approach for data analysis, summarizing and presenting data, data estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, comparing groups, measuring associations, seeing relationships and predictive analysis.

 

The workshop will focus more on understanding of key concepts and less on formulas and calculations, which can be done on statistical software (SPSS). The participants will be provided with their relevant discipline data sets, and they will perform the tests/exercises along with the international resource persons.

 

The researchers from Universities, Research Institutes, R&D Organizations and Social Sector Organizations can participate individually or institutional in their own auditorium/office/home from anywhere around the world. RCTD has a specialized video conferencing facility and an audience response system for hands on sessions and enhanced audio/video learning. The individual participant can participate using a laptop/desktop computer connected with internet.
