Brief introduction to Qualtrics
Basic spss skills
SPSS - Statistical Package for the Social Sciences

Definition:
 SPSS is a computer program used for survey
authoring and deployment, data mining, text
analytics, statistical analysis, and collaboration and
deployment. (Wikipedia)

(Lecture notes – ISEM3120 – Data set 1 & Sample
Questionnaire)

Input Data
 Open SPSS (close the excel file first)
 Open an existing data source – OK
 Select your data file (in case of excel file, you need to
change the “File of type” to Excel (*.xls,*.xlsx,*.xlsm))
 Another way to open data:
File – Open – Data                                          4
Basic spss skills –
Compute Mean & Standard Deviation
Mean – the sum of the values divided by the
number of values.

 Example: Compute the Mean of Factor 2 (Q14-Q18)
1. Transform – Compute Variable
2. Give a name for target variable: MN_F2
3. Function group: All
4. Functions and special variables: Mean (double click)
5. We get the formula of Mean in Numeric Expression: MEAN(?,?)
6. Select Q14-Q18 to replace the “?” in the formula, Qs should be
separated with a “,”
7. Click OK
8. Then we can see the mean of Factor2 (MN_F2) in the last          5
column of the data file.
Basic spss skills –
Compute Mean & Standard Deviation
Standard Deviation – shows how much variation
exists from the average (mean value).

 Example: Compute the Standard Deviation of Factor 2 (Q14-Q18)
1. Transform – Compute Variable
2. Give a name for target variable: SD_F2
3. Function group: All
4. Functions and special variables: Sd (double click)
5. We get the formula of Mean in Numeric Expression: SD(?,?)
6. Select Q14-Q18 to replace the “?” in the formula, Qs should be
separated with a “,”
7. Click OK
8. Then we can see the Standard Deviation of Factor2 (SD_F2) in
6
the last column of the data file.
Basic spss skills –
Compute Mean & Standard Deviation
Another way to compute Mean & Std. Deviation
 Analyze – Descriptive Statistics – Frequencies
 Select the variables you would like to compute, in this
case, Q14 – Q18
 Click Statistics
 Check “Mean” and “Std. deviation”, and click Continue
 Click OK
 Then you can see the result in the output window

7
Basic spss skills –
Plot Pie CHART & HISTOGRAM
Pie chart
 Graphs – Legacy Dialogues – Pie
 Select “Summaries of groups of cases”, click Define
 Drag the variable you want to plot pie chart into
“Define slices by”
 Click OK
 Then you can see the pie chart in the output window

8
Basic spss skills –
Plot Pie CHART & HISTOGRAM
Histogram
   Graphs – Legacy Dialogues – Histogram
   Select the variable
   Check “display normal curve”
   Click OK
   Then you can see the histogram in the output window

9
Basic spss skills –
Run a regression model
Y = aX1 + bX2
 Y: Dependent variable
 X1, X2: Independent variable
 a, b: coefficient

10
Basic spss skills –
Run a regression model
Example:
Run a regression modeling with Factor2 (F2),
Factor4 (F4) and Overall User Satisfaction (OUS)

 Compute the Mean value of F2, F4, and OUS :
MN_F2, MN_F4, MN_OUS
 Analyze – Regression – Linear
 Put MN_OUS into Dependent
 Put MN_F2 and MN_F4 into Independent
 Read the result: R2, β, Sig.

11
Endnote skills
Endnote is a reference management software
package, used to manage bibliographies and
references when writing essays and articles.
(Wikipedia)

Main purpose for BBA project:
 Manage reference
 Cite reference

 9. You could use Endnote now
Endnote skills - install
Get started with Endnote
 Create a new library (Can save it on your local disk or on
 A library is where you put a set of references.
(e.g., You can create a library only for one paper)
 To open your library, find the folder where you save your
library, then double click “My Endnote Library.enl”
 Create new group in your library:
Right click “My Groups” – “Create Group”

Endnote skills –
Create new reference
Manually create reference
 Reference – New Reference
 Input the information of a article (i.e., author, year, title,
journal … )
 Attach a file to a reference

Edit reference
 Double click a reference, or
 Select a reference – right click – Edit Reference

Delete reference
