This PowerPoint presentation about the Library was delivered during Freshers’ Week 2013.
Laura Pearson and Phil Assheton are running further MASH workshops in the library to help you with all your maths and stats needs.
Please Email MASH@lincoln.ac.uk to book on to any of the workshops below:
Introduction to SPSS (Beginner) – Monday 4th March 2-3pm (ul101)
This is for you if you have not used SPSS yet. It is a brief overview of what it is and how to navigate around it. By the end of this session you will know how to input various forms of data and run some analysis to gain descriptives and frequencies.
t-tests on SPSS (Intermediate) – Monday 4th March 3-4pm (ul101)
This is for you if you know a bit about SPSS, maybe had some work using SPSS in previous years and are a little rusty. By the end of this session you will know how to set up a data set for the different t-tests, to run the analysis and begin to interpret the output.
Correlations on SPSS (Intermediate) – Tuesday 5th March 2-3pm (ul101)
This is for you if you know a bit about SPSS, maybe had some work using SPSS in previous years and are a little rusty. By the end of this session you will know how to set up a data set for correlations, to run the analysis and begin to interpret the output. You will conduct both a Parametric (pearsons) and a Non-Parametric (spearmans) Correlation.
Non-Parametric Tests of Difference on SPSS (Intermediate) – Tuesday 5th March 3-4pm (ul101)
This is for you if you would like to carry out a Man-Whitney U test or a Wilcoxons T test. These are non-parametric tests for continuous data on Unrelated and Related data respectively. By the end of this session you will know how to set up data for the two tests, run them and begin to interpret the output.
ANOVA’s on SPSS (Advanced) – Wednesday 6th March 10-11.30am (ul101)
This is for you if you have used SPSS and know you would like to do an Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). During this session you will run several different ANOVA’s and given help to recognise which to use.
An Introduction To Linear Regression – Thursday 14th March 2-3PM (ul101)
This session will present a basic introduction to the process we use for finding straight-line relationships between variables. You will be given a very simple overview to help you interpret the SPSS output and understand the nature of the relationship in your data. It is expected that you should already know how to enter data into SPSS (see other workshops if you need to fill this in!).
SPSS – Bespoke Workshops
If you would like a workshop on SPSS for you and a group of your fellow students please contact us with your needs. We can run workshops at various times to suit both students and tutor.
Excel – Bespoke Workshops
These will be Student led workshops. Once again, let us know your needs and we can arrange suitable workshops once there is a fair demand.
Please email MASH@lincoln.ac.uk to show interest in any of these workshops.
If you have not found the workshop that you were hoping to, please email us with your workshop suggestion.
Are you confused by SPSS and want some answers?
…then help at the Library is available:
Laura Daley in the Maths and Stats Centre in the Learning Development room (opposite the Library issue desk) would be able to help you. The opening hours for the Centre are:
Although the MSSC is a Drop-In centre, you are welcome to book an appointment by emailing Laura at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Maths & Statistics Support Centre helps students with assessment worries and analysis for project work e.g. Mathematical work with algebra, equations or formulae or Statistical concepts such as probability, significance testing and graph-drawing.

Also, the Library contains many books about SPSS.
