College of Doctoral Studies SPSS Access Instructions SPSS (Statistical Program for the Social Sciences) is a computer program that is the de-facto standard used by research institutions and universities for the completion of quantitative analysis. As a doctoral learner, knowledge of quantitative research techniques and the application of these methods as provided in the application software is a required doctoral competency. Doctoral learners are required to use SPSS during several courses to complete specific assignments. Doctoral learners may execute SPSS Base Module and Advanced Statistics in one of two ways. SPSS Installation on Learner's PC or MAC SPSS Base and Advanced Statistics Modules may be installed on a PC or MAC computer. The combined program is very large so please make sure you have at least 2 GB of available disk space on your computer. Once the program file is downloaded, you may access SPSS software to complete classroom assignments and perform quantitative analysis as related to your own research. Actual installation can be performed in less than five minutes after the file has been downloaded. However, the initial download may exceed 60 minutes if your Internet connection is relatively slow. In some instances when the download exceeds 60 minutes, the download may not complete. Should you experience issues when attempting to download the SPSS file, please access the SPSS Server (below). Please use the following links to obtain installation instructions and the program file: • • • • • Instructions: How to install SPSS on your PC PC Download File – 32 bit PC Download File – 64 bit Instructions: How to install SPSS on your MAC MAC Download File All SPSS programs installed on learner computers employ a security activation key which is in effect for 12 months. Should you receive a message indicating your SPSS software is out of date or requires a new activation key, simply follow the instructions referenced above. The update is typically completed in less than five minutes. SPSS Server Access The SPSS Server provides a convenient alternative method to access SPSS Base and Advanced Statistics Program via the Internet. Instead of downloading the entire SPSS program onto your computer (which can exceed 60 minutes), you may access the SPSS program via the Internet by downloading a small activation file (in less than five minutes). Once the activation file is downloaded, you may access SPSS software from any location where you are connected to the Internet to complete classroom assignments and perform quantitative analysis as related to your own research. Please use the following link to obtain instructions on how access the SPSS Server. • Instructions: How to access the SPSS Server Remember that when completing course assignments using the SPSS server, it is necessary to first download the SPSS data file (.SAV) prior to accessing the SPSS Server. Once the data file is download to your computer, you can OPEN the file directly from SPSS. Technical Support Should you encounter any technical issues when attempting to install SPSS on your computer or access the GCU SPSS Server, please contact GCU IT Technical Support at 877-428-8447. Hours of operation: Monday – Friday: 6 AM – Midnight; Saturday and Sunday: 7 AM – Midnight (AZ time). Should you require assistance using SPSS to perform analysis, please contact your GCU faculty member. © 2015. Grand Canyon University. All Rights Reserved.

Module 2 Problem Set- Data Evaluation in SPSS

The primary objective of the study was to evaluate if there are exist differences between
GAF and consumer satisfaction between public or private clinical agencies.
Q1. Identify the independent variable. Identify the dependent variable(s).
The independent variable in the study is the Agency element. On the other hand, the dependent
variables in the study are GAF and consumer satisfaction.
Q2. Are there any missing values for any of the variables? If there are, what do you
recommend doing to address this issue?
The variables in the data reveal a number of missing cases. Based on the missing cases in the
variable GAF, consumer satisfaction as well as the agency, it is recommendable to utilize
Average imputation method to address the issue of missing data in the dataset. Average
imputation method entails replacing the missing cases with an average variable for the element
mostly adopted when the sample size is small (Little, & Rubin, 2014). On the other hand, for the
cases where data are missing for an entir...
