Listed below are brief descriptions of several hypothetical data sets. For each of these data sets, we have set up a dozen or more statistical analyses. Some of the analyses are clearly specified. Other analyses will require decisions about the appropriate way to test the hypothesis.
We encourage students to also develop and test their own hypotheses with these data as a way of becoming more familiar with the process of data analysis using SPSS for Windows. Click on the heading for the data set to get a full description of the data and the questions to be evaluated with statistical analyses.
The data sets are labeled pract1.sav, pract2.sav, and pract3.sav. You can access them by clicking on the data set numbers below or going to the section that stores all the data sets elsewhere on this website..
