I teach SPSS for the Psychology class

Psychology, Bowie State University

January 28, 2020

This text is relevant to all of the statistics courses I currently teach. Students often find themselves lost with the steps associated with running statistical analyses in SPSS. It will be adopted and suggested as an additional textbook to assist them with their statistics course as we fully utilize SPSS in our program.
