Statistics Lab

Prereqs & Reqs

Pre-requisites:  PSY1010 + PSY2010 with a grade of C or higher

Co-requisites:  PSY3010

Just like a photographer needs a camera and an artist needs a paintbrush - you will need:

1. a computer (desktop or laptop) with decent memory so that you can run several programs at once such as: excel, proctorio, Canvas, and SPSS (see below).

 

2. a reliable internet connection

3. the program SPSS installed on your computer - this software download will be provided to you free of charge - if you need help installing it, contact SUU IT at 435-865-8200

4. the book below - which we WILL be using for the class and lab.

White, L.H.  (2018). Statistics Straight Up: The Essential Guide to Understanding and Using Statistics. New York, NY: Linus Learning.

5. time - between lab time and homework, you should fully expect to spend 3 hours/week on this lab (not including the class). Why so much? Because most of you will be learning a new program called SPSS. It will be slow going at first, but once you become familiar with it, things will go faster for you. Nevertheless, you should allow plenty of computer time in your schedule. 

Both myself and the stats intern are here to help you! Just note that we won't do the assignments for you. You will learn nothing if we did.
