ASSESS is an independent user led group for SPSS and R, computer packages for analysing and presenting data. Recent ASSESS workshop topics include SPSS/R syntax, SPSS macros, Logistic regression and Hospital Episode Statistics.
A one day SPSS syntax course (comprising two distinct half-day workshops) and two other 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 25th October 2013. 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 27th 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/2013/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. Jacqueline Collier of UEA will lead the morning course ‘Writing and Using SPSS syntax: Beginners’ which will introduce good practice in using SPSS syntax to complete beginners. The author of ‘Using SPSS: A Beginner’s guide’, Jacqueline Collier of the School of Rehabilitation Sciences, University of East Anglia, holds a MSc in Medical Statistics and is a Chartered Psychologist. Darren Walker, an experienced SPSS syntax user and lecturer in research methods, of Cardiff Metropolitan University, will lead the afternoon session ‘Writing and Using SPSS syntax: Next step’ which will look at how SPSS syntax can be used to incorporate features into statistical analyses such as AN(C)OVA and Factor Analysis. Elizabeth Wiredu who has extensive experience teaching a range of statistical methods to clinicians will lead the ‘Correlation & Regression in SPSS’ workshop which will look at aspects of modelling using linear regression. Kevin Ralston of the University of St Andrews, who will lead the SPSS Multilevel workshop, teaches the application of multilevel models at Essex summer schools and has used these in various publications. This workshop is aimed at beginners new to this exciting and rapidly expanding area of analysis.
 
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.

* obtain training in using SPSS and R from experienced tutors who are fellow users
