Course content

This one-day course will provide hands-on experience of using regression modelling in SPSS.  The start of the course will be devoted to modelling a quantitative outcome with respect to a variety of different types of independent variables (factors, covariates, interactions) and different types of model selection procedures as well as considering the statistical validity of regression models. The course will then progress on to modelling binary outcome variables using the very popular approach known as logistic regression.  This course is ideally suited to any researcher working with multiple variables which may be related to a dependent variable. SPSS will be used throughout the day with tutor lead examples to explain concepts. This is a practical hands-on course avoiding a mathematical exposition. 


This is a non-credit bearing course and no assessment will be undertaken. You will receive a certificate of attendance on completion of the course.
