Stand-alone exercises with downloadable codebooks and data sets, for use in introductory, substantive, or research methods courses in the social sciences using SPSS or other statistical software.
Definition of an ExerciseExercises contain a problem, (theoretical or statistical) a dataset and codebook and steps on how to answer the problem by analysis of the data set. Unlike the modules there is little or no theoretical material provided.
We hope that instructors will submit their favorite data sets and exercises to add to this location. Our homepage will provide a link to tell how to submit an exercise. As more material is added we will create a searchable index to find possible analysis exercises for a particular subject or analytical/statistical skill. The materials are available as downloadable word processing documents for printing or customizing by instructors.Ways to Use Exercises in Class
