Introduction to Statistics using SPSS

Some of the SIS staff (Damian, Jake, Asim, Bob, Tanya and Mary Anne) were privileged to attend a workshop titled "Introduction to Statistics using SPSS". It was conducted by Anindito Aditomo (Nino) of the CoCo Research Centre at the University of Sydney and the Faculty of Psychology at Surabaya University.
While Nino worked on improving our knowledge, skills and understanding the guys at the back
(you know who you are :-)) provided relevant
entertainment. The workshop was very useful
and should see an increase in the use of descriptive
and inferential statistics in research within the School.
Thank you Nino.
