Data Analysis in Higher & Further Education

Addressing the digital and technology skills gap is of vital concern to education establishments, government, and businesses alike. So, how do you get students interested and engaged in STEM subjects at an early age?

By making statistics and data analysis simple and interesting, academic establishments can encourage students into STEM subjects and teach them softer skills such as communication, imagination, analytical, visualisation and storytelling skills.

A comprehensive tool that combines a visual data view, data transformation, open-source coding and visual options for graphs will inspire and encourage students within an educational environment and support the promotion of STEM, its learnings and research within the Statistics Community.


Why SPSS Statistics

SPSS facilitates the creation of a visual story from data and underpins the communication of that story within a learning environment. This powerful tool with a vast array of statistical tests is easy to use and visually represents data in useful charts and graphs, enabling an understanding of complex data in a straightforward visual way.
