The major concept that were covered in this course is majorly the issue of the software of the IBM SPSS which enables the educators to have the ability to deliver the basic knowledge to the learners more effectively and also to enable learners to gain more information and critical analytical skills in classroom situations. This is software which is to be licensed and be used by students for analyzing statistic problems especially in the class situations. It is very vital since it normally gives the correct information as could be required by the learner or the tutor. This software again is very vital in that one can be able to make some vital predictions especially what is going to happen next without having exactly the clue about the situation itself. This may help them to make some necessary arrangement in terms of avoiding problems in any way.
Some major concepts behind the study of this course was majorly to enable learners to be able to know how they can be able to know how to use the software IBM SPSS in entering data and analyzing data in graphs and charts which are statistics related. This concept can boast the trend of carrying out a statistical analysis alongside other means like the case of using spreadsheet for data management but due to the facts that it would be having some limitations in the usage, then SPSS will be of great importance since it has some inbuilt capabilities in the analysis of data which makes the work of the students and the educators a little bit simple and more efficient. This help also with the course materials to the learners and also the educators at some points.
The software allows for in-depth access to the information by students and allows them to come up with the required report and best graphs for their statistical analysis. Some of the major benefits of the information that was covered under this concept of the SPSS are like the case of the effective data management by learners. It makes the means of data analysis a bit faster since it knows the locations and position of the cases and the required variables for the data analysis. It is worth noting that in data management by the use of the IBM SPSS, arrow normally represents the case whereas the column represents the variable in use by the analyzer. This enhances the efficiency of the data management by the learner or the educator with that regard.
The concept of SPSS has a wide range of options in use since it gives the learner the ability the options in making standardized graphs and charts for the analysis purposes. Some demerits of some data analysis that are commonly used by the statistical analyzers are like they can only allow the analysis of data that are entered by the use of some already installed plugins within the computer applications in excel spreadsheet. SPSS comes with some more advanced techniques of screening or generally cleaning the information in preparation for the process of data analysis and gives the correct impression of what should be expected by the learner or the educator.
The IBM SPSS has also another vital advantage in it that makes it best for the data analysis process. It has the ability to manage data and gives the best output in an organized manner for the learners. It works in a way that it puts the output needed by the students separate to the data used and this ensures that it gives the data output in an organized manner for the learners and the educators in general. This software is capable of providing in-depth data analysis techniques to the learners than the excel spreadsheet and with this in mind, it has many merits for use than the common excel spreadsheet for analysis purposes especially in learning situations.
Besides the software benefits to the students, the software can be of great importance to any industry in analyzing its data and coming up with the precise value of their item in the common markets. This will enable them either to increase the yield or lower the level of productions in case the product is not selling out. This software can help one come up with some predictive means of analysis and make the appropriate analysis of data and make the correct assumptions with respect to the type of data one could be having at hand.
Generally, the course was administered relatively in the best way despite some meager challenges like the case of using the IBM SPSS software by students for the first time. it posed a great challenge to the students on how to come up with the best analyzed data. It requires adequate time and proper understanding for one to be able to analyze the given data by using the given SPSS software. For future use, it would be vital for one to undergo proper training in order to use the software more effectively.
