IBM SPSS software enables educators to teach effectively, helps students gain critical analytical skills and supports more accurate and insightful institutional research and decision making, he added.

The workshop objective was to train the participants in how to produce various advanced level statistics according to their research needs and how to use SPSS and AMOS for producing quantitative analysis, interpreting values, applying tests and producing results in graphical modeling.

Around 40 participants of SSUET were connected to the other institutions and researchers across the country through this Webinar, HD Video Conference.

The program also focused on Interpretation and writing quantitative findings and building capacity to produce quantitative analysis through software.

Quantitative analysis has become increasingly pre-requisite to academic research, managerial reports and field analysis. Sophisticated quantitative techniques are applied to report patterns, test significance, infer statistics and present results in graphical models.
