Statistical Analysis Using SPSS

SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Science) is an instructor-led classroom course that provides an application orientation to SPSS. Students will review several statistical techniques and discuss situations in which they would use each technique, assumptions made and how to set up the analysis and interpret results. Students will better understand when and how to use these techniques and apply them with confidence, interpret their output and graphically display their results. 



Introduction to R

R is an open source software package that can be used for statistical computing and graphics. The R language is widely used among statisticians and data miners for developing statistical software and data analysis and runs on a range of operating systems. The primary objective of this course is to provide participants with an introduction to R to cover statistical techniques which include: T-test for means, Variance Tests, Chi-Squared Tests, Normality Tests, Analysis of Variance, Correlation analysis and Regression Modelling.  Data visualisation is also explored and participants will be exposed to the powerful potential of R’s graphical elements in order to create customisable visuals to aid in the storytelling of data.
