Welcome: Using Statistical Regression Methods in Education Research  

Using statistical regression methods in education researchThis website aims to teach statistical regression methods for use in educational and social research. We try to avoid going into the technical details to help you to learn these methods and to interpret your research findings using SPSS. If you're new to this website then why not view the introduction video or have a look at the information about using the site? Alternatively you could plunge straight in to our Foundation Module.

Quick Summary

This site is primarily for researchers and students in the field of Education who have limited experience in quantitative research methods and wish to expand their expertise without drowning in a sea of abstract examples and formulae. This site is not aimed at statisticians or those with high levels of experience in quantitative methods. There are plenty of resources available which are pitched at such audiences. What there is a relative lack of are resources aimed at students or researchers in the field of education who do not have a background in statistics but wish to develop their quantitative skills and apply new tools to their work. If you fall into this second group then this site may be for you!
