WISERD is committed to delivering a series of Training & Capacity Building events having identified the types of courses that would be of most benefit to WISERD researchers and those outside of WISERD.

The next event is aimed at researchers who wish to perform basic statistical analysis using SPSS software.  For example, to create descriptive statistics including charts to represent quantitative data, and to perform basic analysis such as t-tests and Chi Square tests. No prior knowledge of the software or statistical analysis is required. However, if attendees do already have a reasonable knowledge of statistics, the morning session will be optional.

The morning session:

(statistical analysis) will be aimed at researchers with no background in quantitative research, or those who have not worked in this area for some time and need refreshing on the basic areas.

The afternoon session:

is an introduction to using SPSS statistical analysis software. It is aimed at researchers that have no previous experience of using it but wish to develop some basic skills in order to run simple analysis of their own. Some prior knowledge of statistics is required, up to the standard covered in the morning session.

Date: 6th April 2016

Location: University of South Wales

Times: 9.30am - 4.30pm
