Learn how to run regressions and ANOVAs in SPSS GLM accurately and efficiently

I am no statistics expert, but I'm frequently asked if Academic Ladder can help with statistical problems. The best I can do is refer you to specialists who know what they're doing. I believe that The Analysis Factor, a web site that specializes in helping people with the statistical aspect of their research, has a lot to offer.

Here is an announcement that I just received from Karen Grace-Martin, the owner of The Analysis Factor. For those of you struggling with running regressions and ANOVAS in SPSS GLM accurately, I suggest you check it out.

Here is the registration page for those who just want to sign up: Learn how to run regressions and ANOVAs in SPSS GLM accurately and efficiently.

Imagine understanding your statistical software well enough to just write the program, choose the menu options you need, get the right output, and be able to read it easily. Think of the time and frustration it would save!

I am inviting you to my Running Regressions and ANOVA in SPSS GLM Workshop, which starts November 3. If you use SPSS for regressions or ANOVAs in your research, this 3 hour workshop (plus 1 hour Q&A) will help you get to that place.

I've decided to try out something new in the second Question & Answer session, which meets on December 15th. Send me your data and one research question, and in 10-15 minutes I'll show you how to run the appropriate analysis through the GLM or regression. You'll see me analyze it using menus and syntax, I'll explain why each option is appropriate in this analysis, and we'll go over the results and what they mean. Then I'll send you the syntax program, for you to use or edit.

I was already offering this second bonus as a Question and Answer Session, but I thought we'd try this out. I've been thinking about how great of a learning tool consulting is—there's nothing like seeing the statistical analysis in terms of your own, real data.

An additional benefit is it exposes you to other kinds of models and data. It's when you see a variety of models that you really start to get this stuff. You'll see how similar the methods are, even when the topics aren't. So you'll know what to look for.

I'm limiting this bonus session to the first 10 people who register so everyone who wants to send data can participate. There are only 3 spots left to receive this bonus.

On top of that, the Early Registration discount ends tomorrow, October 21, at midnight eastern. It's $30 off the full price.

So if you're intererested, I suggest you register now:

And if you're not sure if it's for you, just give me a call. 607-539-3216. I'll be here all day today and I'm happy to help you figure out if it meets your needs.

Happy analyzing,

The Analysis Factor

I hope this is of help to some of my readers and clients!

"ABD" -- what does it really mean?

I thought I knew what the definition of ABD was. It was exactly the same as defined here in Carnegie Mellon's University Doctoral Candidate Policies for All But Dissertation (ABD) : After the completion of all formal degree requirements other than the completion of and approval of the doctoral dissertation and the public final examination, doctoral candidates shall be regarded as All But Dissertation(ABD). I have, though, occasionally run into the term ABD being used as a somewhat disparaging designation for one who fulfills the formal degree requirements of the Ph.D. but never finishes the dissertation, and then quits the program. Most recently, I saw it in What They Didn' t Teach You in Graduate School: 199 Helpful Hints for Success in Your Academic Career , by Paul Gray and David E. Drew. Number 9 of their helpful hints is one that I strongly agree with: "Remember that a Ph.D. is primarily an indication of survivorship." They go on to say, "You stuck wi

Academic Exhaustion Syndrome: Four Recovery Strategies

The semester’s over. If you’re anything like the academics I coach, you feel like death warmed over.  Those last stacks of grading got done on sheer will, determination and fumes. And this is before considering your writing deadlines, committee responsibilities, and other demands.  You are suffering from Academic Exhaustion Syndrome.  Academic Exhaustion Syndrome (an advanced, more scholarly state of burn out) is a state of emotional, and physical exhaustion caused by prolonged stress, ending with grading, over the course of the semester and academic year. As the stress continues, you begin to lose interest and motivation to work, you have fantasies of standing up and screaming in the middle of a meeting, and you wonder what temporary loss of reality testing made you decide to become an academic.  This dreaded Syndrome can: Reduce your productivity and saps your energy Make you irritable and have thoughts of strangling an undergraduate Make you feel like you have nothing more to g

The Second Holiday Writing Challenge for Academics

Here's a little boost for those who need a little kickstart to write over the holidays.  I first offered a Holiday Writing Challenge  back in 2005, so I'd say it's about time to do it again. Here's what you do: Post in the comment section: what you'd like to work on (if anything) over the holidays, and the maximum amount of time you'd like to spend on it daily . Please keep this time limit reasonable and low unless you're under huge deadline pressure -- in which case you don't need this challenge in order to get something done! Whether you're a professor or a grad student, make sure you get a copy of the Dissertation Toolkit.  These tools will give you more information and tips for productive and creative writing.  For those of you who have had trouble making yourself write, you may want to start with VERY short writing goals . Even 5 or 10 minutes will be enough to get you jumpstarted.  Don't go more than 25 or 30 minutes withou
