Statistical Support: About This Tutorial

Providing statistical assistance for undergraduates and graduate students with their data set.

What is SPSS?

SPSS is a data management and analysis software package, maintained by IBM. On the surface it looks a lot like a spreadsheet and performs many of the same functions. Unlike most spreadsheets, however, SPSS provides easy access to a large bevvy of statistical tests and graphics and supports much larger datasets. It is probably the most popular and well-known commercial statistical software within the Education, Sociology and Psychology department.

 


Where can I use SPSS?

SPSS is available for use in Knowledge Commons (Level 2), as well as using the Remote access options at the College of Social and Behavioral Science website, https://apps.csbs.utah.edu/Citrix/XenApp/auth/login.aspx.
