Workshop 7: Introduction to Non-Parametric Statistics Online

This a statistics workshop bookable please by only postgraduate research students and staff at Coventry University. Students on taught programmes of study can obtain one to one help from sigma (please see http://sigma.coventry.ac.uk)

Please note This is an Online Workshop

If you have ordinal or nominal data, e.g. obtained using questionnaires, then you need some special methods to analyse the data called non-parametric methods. These are also useful if you can’t use t-tests or ANOVA (studied in Workshops 5 and 6 above) due to problems with the assumption of normality. We will consider tests such as Mann-Whitney tests and Kruskal-Wallis tests for an ordinal response (dependent) variable as well as Chi-Squared tests for nominal data. There will be an opportunity to practise some of these analyses using SPSS.

(Note this workshop assumes previous experience of SPSS or attendance at Workshop 4 and that you can access SPSS remotely)

Should you wish to use SPSS on your own laptop or PC, then you must follow the instructions in the attachment provided at the bottom of this page BEFORE the day of the workshop. SPSS can be accessed via AppsAnywhere on any University managed PC.

It is important you check you have access to SPSS well BEFORE the day of the workshop so that sigma can help you troubleshoot any problems you may be having. There will NOT be any opportunities to solve any issues with access to SPSS on the day of the workshop. Please direct any questions about this to sigma_staff@coventry.ac.uk
