# SPSS "Crash Course Question"

Posted on 2013-06-22

Need some assistance with SPSS. At this time, I'm a novice on the SPSS software package.

Obviously, there's tons of information on Google and YouTube. At the same time, having a specific question, I'd like to reach out to the EE network and see if I can get some general pointers:

Quick Background:

- As part of some research, I have several independent variables (across different categories) and several dependent variables.

- To determine correlation (in SPSS), I believe one of the viable options is to use "One-Way ANOVA"...

- Thus, for testing purposes, I've selected one of the independent variables and a dependent variable.

- When executing the One-Way ANOVA, I don't see any "Multiple R", "R Square", "Adjusted R Square", or "P values", etc. (as seen when computing in Excel).

My question:

Whether a one-to-one (1 independent variable vs. 1 dependent variable) OR many-to-one (several IVs vs. 1 DV), what are some viable statistics/test that I should run in SPSS?

Again, just looking for some general guidelines... SPSS is extremely powerful and I probably won't use more than 10% of its capabilities. Right now, it's just a bit overwhelming when learning this tool.

Thoughts/recommendations?

Thanks,

EEH
