ASSESS is an independent user group for SPSS, a computer package for
analysing and presenting data. It is run by users, for users and is
completely independent of manufacturers of the software. In 1996, 2000
and 2002 ASSESS gave one-day workshops on the subject of SPSS macros
and syntax and last year ran three day workshops on syntax, macros and output.
Two one day workshops are provisionally planned to be held in the

Both days will be taught in an interactive hand-on workshop-style format,
with frequent examples and exercises for participants to work through.
A full set of notes and exercise solutions will also be given to all who
attend. If participants have SPSS-related queries relating to their own
data which they wish to explore, both tutors will be willing to
(at least attempt to!) answer these at the end of each day.
Dr Chris Stride is the statistician at the Institute of Work Psychology,
University of Sheffield, and has over a decade of experience teaching both
statistics and SPSS to non-statisticians.
Dr Peter Watson is a statistician at the MRC Cognition and Brain Science
Unit in Cambridge, has been teaching SPSS for non-statisticians for 15
years and has given three talks to the SPSS users group. Chris and Peter
led a three day SPSS workshop at the University of Sheffield in 2007.
Each day will run from approximately 10am to 4-45pm. The booking fee includes
