UNIVERSITY OF YORK, YORK

ASSESS is an independent user led group for SPSS, a computer package for analysing and presenting data. Recent ASSESS workshop topics include SPSS  syntax, SPSS macros, Logistic regression and Hospital Episode Statistics.
Four parallel half-day workshops together with a day of SPSS user presentations are provisionally planned to be held at the Alcuin Research Resource Centre, University of York, on Friday 31st October 2014. Two workshops will run in parallel from 10am to (approx) 12-45pm and two further SPSS workshops from 1-50pm to (approx) 4-30pm. The 28th Users group meeting illustrating SPSS applications by users will run, in addition, all day in the auditorium. Each delegate may, therefore, attend a morning workshop or the morning users group session and/or an afternoon workshop or afternoon users group session.

Workshop topics are at http://spssusers.co.uk/Events/2014/confprog.html. The workshops will be taught in an interactive hands-on workshop-style format, with frequent examples. A full set of notes and example files will be given to all workshop attenders. There will also be handouts at the users group sessions. John Hall, formerly director of the Survey Research Unit at the former Polytechnic of North London (now part of London Metropolitan University) with experience in using SPSS to design and teach courses on survey methods, will lead the 'Beginners Guide to Survey Analysis using SPSS' in the morning. Paul Norman, a lecturer in Human Geography Applied Spatial Analysis & Policy from the University of Leeds will lead 'Classifying areas using k-means Cluster Analysis in SPSS' also in the morning. Darren Walker, an experienced SPSS user and lecturer in research methods from Cardiff Metropolitan University, will lead the afternoon session 'An Introduction to Factor Analysis in SPSS'. Mario Hair, an independent statistical consultant with over thirty years experience of using and teaching SPSS, will lead the 'Factorial Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) in SPSS' afternoon course.

The booking fee includes a coffee break mid-workshop but not overnight accommodation.  A buffet lunch is available and is included for those attending both a morning and an afternoon event. Further details will be sent to delegates upon receipt of booking forms.


Come along to:
* obtain training in using SPSS from experienced tutors who are fellow users
* learn about statistical methods used for data analysis in SPSS
* exchange ideas with other SPSS users
* plan for an even better user group and suggest events for 2015


The venue for both the workshops and user (presentations) meeting is the Alcuin Research Resource
Centre (ARRC) on York University campus located in Heslington, 2 miles to the south-east
of the city centre. It takes 10-15 minutes in a taxi from the railway station.
The Number 4 bus runs regularly to the University from York railway station (see
http://www.yorkshiretravel.net/). Parking at the University is very difficult.
Location details are at http://www.york.ac.uk/about/maps/. Accommodation is
