Learn about the underpinning logical arguments for statistical inference and the terminology used in this hands-on course. SPSS is used throughout the day, so attendees are expected to be familiar with this statistical software as well as descriptive statistics.
This course is a logical continuation of the Introduction to Statistics 1 course. Besides continuing to cover the commonly used statistical tests, it also provides an overview of selecting the most appropriate statistical test.
Gain an overview of what Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) is and how it relates to regression techniques and factor analysis. The software AMOS is used and you will develop skills in the use of AMOS, path diagram construction, analysis formats, output management and modelling practice. The course will then build on these concepts and skills to introduce the structural equation modelling.
