Office Hours:

 

For online courses I am generally in the office Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m.  to 5:00 p.m. CST to answer questions by email or phone. When I am teaching face-to-face I will return messages and emails generally within 24 hours.  If you need to make an appointment to talk with me outside of these hours call or email to establish a time.

 

Course Overview:

The purpose of this course is to familiarize graduate students with the calculation and interpretation of common statistical s and the use of SPSS as a tool in their research projects.  The student will be guided through a series of lessons in SPSS that will both familiarize the student with the software and teach appropriate statistical ing and interpretation of results. The course will culminate with a project that will showcase all that has been learned in the course.
