Part I.      Introduction     SPSS Self-Tutorial II introduces you to the Explore, T-Test, Cross-tabulation, Correlation, Scatterplot and Regression statistical routines of the SPSS for Windows program. It also teaches you how to create new variables through the mathematical manipulation of existing variables, how to directly edit your data, and how to label and format your variables. This exercise is the second in a sequence of two SPSS for Windows exercises that are developed for EPFA 511. You must complete the first SPSS exercise, the "SPSS for Windows Self-Tutorial I", before you do this exercise , since this exercise is based on the assumption that you are already familiar with the basics of using the program, as covered in the "Self-Tutorial". All SPSS tutorials are designed to work in conjunction with the provided 29-variable, 577-case NYCSCH1.SAV data file, which is fully described in the first self-tutorial. The instructions given in this tutorial specify the tasks you must carry out. For procedures and types of analysis that were not covered in "SPSS for Windows Self-Tutorial I", this document spells out complete descriptions of the required steps. For the types of tasks that were covered in the "Self- Tutorial", you are expected to be able to adapt the techniques used therein to the specifications of this exercise. As was the case for the he first tutorial, we will conclude our work with each and every statistics-producing window by clicking on Paste so that a save-able file of our statistics-producing commands will be created. Once we have generated a statistics-producing command, we will execute it to produce statistical results.
