Be organized and neat Lab sessions & PASW Computer laboratory sessions will be an integral part of this course and will be integrated into the lectures. In the lab sessions, you will learn how to use the PASW (formerly SPSS) statistical analysis programs and will work practice problems using PASW. Many of your homework assignments require that you use PASW. You do not have to purchase PASW; the College has a site license and it’s available on the network. Unless you own your own copy of PASW, you will need to plan your schedule so that you can be on campus to do your homework assignments that require PASW, you cannot not access it off campus.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
