Lab Work & Project:
All the units will include discussion on theoretical concepts followed by practical SPSS demonstration on real/simulated data. Learners are welcome to bring and discuss their actual problems related to quantitative analysis. Our every learner receives personal attentions and we endeavour to equip every learner to develop a sense of professional competency in quantitative data analysis using SPSS.
