ASSESS is an independent user led group for SPSS, a computer package for analysing and presenting data. Recent ASSESS workshop topics include SPSS syntax, Logistic regression and Hospital Episode Statistics.

Four half-day workshops together with a morning of SPSS User presentations and an afternoon users clinic are provisionally planned to be held at the Alcuin Research Resource Centre, University of York, on Friday 30th October 2015. The workshops will be taught in an interactive hands-on workshop-style format, with frequent examples. All example files and notes will be given to all workshop attenders (on USB sticks). There will also be handouts at the morning user talk session. In addition there will be a plenary 30 minute recorded webinar open to all delegates given by a member of IBM SPSS which will take place immediately after lunch prior to the afternoon parallel sessions.

Frances Provan of the University of Edinburgh will lead the ‘Writing and using SPSS syntax:Beginners’ morning course. Frances is an experienced SPSS tutor who has tutored on SPSS syntax both at the University of Edinburgh and for ASSESS. Keith Bentley is a lecturer at the University of Salford and will lead an ‘Insight into using SPSS to look at bivariate and multi-variate associations within data from the British Crime Survey’. Peter Samuels who leads ‘Statistical analysis of independent groups in SPSS’ is an academic skills tutor at Birmingham City University. Peter Watson, a statistician with MRC, has led the SPSS macros course for ASSESS in previous years.

The booking fee includes a coffee break mid-workshop but not overnight accommodation. A buffet lunch is available and is included for those attending both a morning and an afternoon event. Further details will be sent to delegates upon receipt of booking forms.


Come along to:
* obtain training in using SPSS from experienced tutors who are fellow users
* learn about statistical methods used for data analysis in SPSS
* exchange ideas with other SPSS users
* plan for an even better user group and suggest events for 2016

Centre (ARRC) on York University campus located in Heslington, 2 miles to the south-east
of the city centre. It takes 10-15 minutes in a taxi from the railway station.
