ASSESS is an independent user led group for IBM SPSS Statistics,
a computer package for analysing and presenting data. Recent ASSESS workshop
topics include IBM SPSS Statistics syntax,
Logistic regression and Hospital Episode Statistics.

Two half-day workshops and one one-day workshop together with a day of
IBM SPSS Statistics User presentations are provisionally planned to be held
at the Alcuin Research Resource Centre, University of York, on Friday 21st October 2016.
The workshops will be taught in an interactive hands-on workshop-style format,
with frequent examples. All example files and notes will be given to all workshop attenders
(on USB sticks). There will also be printed handouts at the user talk sessions but not
for the workshops. In addition there will be a plenary 30 minute recorded webinar open to
all delegates given by a member of IBM SPSS Statistics which will take place immediately
after lunch prior to the afternoon parallel sessions.

Keith Bentley is a lecturer at the University of Salford and former senior police officer.
He will lead ‘Unlocking information already obtained to inform policy decisions and
forward corporate strategies using IBM SPSS Statistics’. This course looks at combining
police held data with third part local authority social data which is then used
in conjunction with IBM SPSS Statistics Predictive Analytics to reduce crime against
vulnerable citizens. John Lemon is an experienced computing advisor from the University
of Aberdeen and will lead ‘Good Practice for producing graphs and charts using IBM SPSS Statistics'.
Hannah Ayres and Gurdip Kaur of ORC International will lead the IBM SPSS Statistics
Key Driver workshop. Both are members of ORC International's Statistics team, responsible
for survey methodology consultancy including the identification of drivers of customer behaviour.  

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.


Come along to:

  • obtain training in using IBM SPSS Statistics from experienced tutors who are fellow users
  • learn about statistical methods used for data analysis in IBM SPSS Statistics

The venue for both the workshops and user (presentations) meeting is the Alcuin Research Resource
Centre (ARRC) on York University campus located in Heslington, 2 miles to the south-east
of the city centre. It takes 10-15 minutes in a taxi from the railway station.
The Number 4 bus runs regularly to the University from York railway station (see
