University of Dar Es Salaam College of Engineering and Technology BUREAU FOR INDUSTRIAL COOPERATION (BICO) TRAINING COURSE ON DATA ANALYSIS BY USING SPSS/PASW SOFTWARE Introduction The skills to analyse project, research data into useful information is of paramount importance to all professions be it data from customer and/or marketing research or data from social-economic research conducted by Ministerial, Department and Agencies (MDAs), Local Governments Authorities (LGAs), Parastatal Organizations, Private Companies and Firms, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) or Community Based Organizations (CBOs). SPSS is the leading computer package for analysing research findings statistically. The analysis of research findings will be forceful and more sounding, if presented using SPSS computer package. However, the use of this package requires basic understanding of statistics and research methodologies and more important the package itself. The course will be highly action-oriented and is designed to provide participants with these necessary skills on basic research methodology, and the use of SPSS Computer package using well elaborated case-studies. At the end of this training, participants are expected to be able to design researches and analyse findings into presentable format, and provide useful information to project/programme beneficiaries and stakeholders. The course is even more important to postgraduate students from all higher learning institutions. Objectives To improve skills of researchers in design of good data collections tools and to perform basics and advanced data analysis using SPSS Package Organization of the course [TABLE="width: 629"] [TR] [TD="colspan: 2"]S/No.[/TD] [TD="colspan: 3"]Course Name[/TD] [TD="colspan: 3"]Course Timing[/TD] [TD="colspan: 2"]Location[/TD] [TD]Training Fee[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]1[/TD] [TD="colspan: 2"] Basic Data Analysis Using SPSS[/TD] [TD="colspan: 3"] 15[SUP]th [/SUP] 18[SUP]th[/SUP] November 2011[/TD] [TD="colspan: 3"] UDSM-CoET(BICO)[/TD] [TD="colspan: 2"] Tshs. 500,000/=[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]2[/TD] [TD="colspan: 3"]Advanced Data Analysis Using SPSS[/TD] [TD="colspan: 3"]22[SUP]nd[/SUP] 24[SUP]th[/SUP] November 2011[/TD] [TD="colspan: 3"]UDSM-CoET(BICO)[/TD] [TD]Tshs. 600,000/=[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] Course Modules [TABLE] [TR] [TD]1: Basic Course [/TD] [TD]2: Advanced Course[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]· Introduction to statistics and research methods[/TD] [TD]· Inferential Statistics and Hypothesis Testing[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]· Introduction to SPSS computer interface, data coding and entry by using SPSS,[/TD] [TD]· Analysis of Variance(Anova), One sample T Test, Paired sample T Test and Independent sample T Test[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]· Introduction and preparation of Data collection tools (Interview guides, questionnaires)[/TD] [TD]· Creating Custom Tables, Regression and Correlation Analysis[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]· Basic Data analysis and Presentation using SPSS[/TD] [TD]· Curve Estimating for Modelling data[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]· SPSS outputs Interpretation[/TD] [TD]· Exploratory & Confirmatory Factor Analysis/Structural Equation Modelling (SEM)[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] Target Group Researchers in different fields, Managers in various field, in private and public enterprises, DAPs, CEO, Directors, Statisticians, Planning Officers, Monitoring and Evaluations Officers, Records Managers, Lecturers from Higher Learning Institutions, Staff from Government Ministries, Local Government Authorities, Regulatory Authorities, Agencies and Parastatals Organizations.
