A friendly video course for anybody who wants to get the first notions of statistical analysis with SPSS.

If you are an absolute beginner and don't know anything about SPSS, this free course is for you. After completing it, you will know how to create an SPSS data set, how to work with your data (select cases, split files, weigh data etc.), how to summarize and visualize your data with charts and tables, how to compute the statistical indicators for your data series, and also how to perform a couple of statistical tests (the ch-square test for association and the independent samples t test).

In a word, you will have a solid idea about how SPSS works and what you can do with it.

All that's required from you is basic statistics knowledge (this is not a Statistics 101 course).

This course is structured in 27 lectures, covering about 20 topics. For every topic I have prepared practical exercises, so you can consolidate your knowledge and form your skills. You can find the exercises in the PDF files attached to almost every lecture.

With this course you can master the basics of SPSS in a few days only (depending, of course, of your learning pace).

So... just press the enroll button to start learning now. :)

Who is the target audience?
  • students and graduate students in statistics and social sciences (psychology, sociology, marketing etc.)
  • anyone who want to learn the basics of statistical analysis in SPSS
