This course is designed to provide an intensive introduction to the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and Analysis of Moment Structures (AMOS). The objective of the one-day training program is to instill confidence in the usage of statistics and interpretation of various research data. SPSS and AMOS are User-friendly Windows-based statistical software and powerful and versatile tools for data analysis. The training combines lecture and practices sessions.
