Statistics as Principled Argument II: More Descriptive and Inferential Statistics on SPSS (Event Flyer)
Presented by: David Hardy, Ph.D.
Psychology Department, Loyola Marymount University
This workshop will provide instruction on database management, descriptive statistics, and inferential statistics (hypothesis testing). We will be using SPSS, a popular statistical software program. Instruction on SPSS will be integrated with an overarching conceptual theme that statistics can help you make (or criticize) more strongly an argument. Descriptive statistics such as measures of central tendency and variability will be briefly covered. Inferential statistics will also be introduced, where hypotheses can be tested and arguments can be made (or not!). Academic performance in LMU students will be examined to illustrate these procedures and rhetorical strategies. Handouts will be provided along with demonstration exercises.

This event is part of the Quantitative and Qualitative Skills Workshop (QQSW) series.
