Using SPSS to Report NSSE Data: Transform Your Analyses and Save Time with SPSS

Regional NSSE User’s Workshop

October 2006

Rick Shoup, Research Analyst

Center for Postsecondary Research, Indiana University Bloomington

goals
Goals
  • Identify key components of the NSSE datafile
  • Introduce users to SPSS command syntax
  • Expose users to less commonly used SPSS functions
  • Highlight how SPSS can save time
  • Demonstrate practical application of SPSS to generate customized NSSE reports
  • Make NSSE data more accessible
nsse datafile
NSSE Datafile
  • Core survey items
  • Administration fields
  • Institution-provided flags
  • Student-level benchmark indices and weights
  • Codebook and SPSS labels/values as references
graphic user interface gui
Graphic User Interface (GUI)
  • “Point-and-click” environment
  • Front-end interface that automatically generates command syntax
  • Most GUI processes can be “pasted” to the syntax editor
command syntax
Command Syntax
  • Powerful command language provided by SPSS
  • Runs “behinds the scenes”
  • Rendered in the third major SPSS window – the Syntax Editor
scripts
Scripts
  • SPSS scripts program tasks that cannot be done with command syntax, including:
  • Scripts use Sax Basic programming language
  • Scripts are created and modified in the fourth major SPSS window, the script window
  • Bold lines in a report
  • Print reports
  • Save output
basic spss functions
Basic SPSS functions
  • Opening files
  • Creating variables
  • Specifying variable and value labels/formats
  • Frequencies
  • Crosstabulations
advanced spss functions
Advanced SPSS functions
  • Ctables
  • Scripts
  • OMS

Walk-Through

We want to build a report that presents a side-by-side comparison of the Student-Faculty Interaction items for your institution’s Arts & Humanities, Biology, and Education Students.

slide11

Your Turn!

  • Develop a frequency report that shows only female (gender = 2) Arts & Humanities, Business, and Social Science students side-by-side.
  • Use only the Academic Challenge items:
    • (workhard, analyze, synthesz, evaluate, applying)
  • Also save a copy of the report in MS Excel but don’t include Business results.
  • Use a script to bold the “total” row in the SPSS output.

Summary

  • IR offices are often under pressure to produce customized reports FAST
  • SPSS syntax can standardize most institutional research demands and alleviate drudgery
  • Use your imagination—syntax can be used in many different ways
