## JASP or Jamovi? Which Should You Use?

Both JASP and Jamovi have come a long way and are viable free alternatives to teaching students SPSS. Which one should you use in 2024? In this video, Alexander Swan compares JASP and Jamovi to help make your decision. Check out the video notes for links to his JASP and Jamovi tutorial playlists.

## Resources: Stats of Doom

A comprehensive site created by Dr. Erin Buchanan offering lecture materials and videos for a full range of statistics concepts covered in a basic/introductory course (descriptives, graphs, z-scores, t-tests, ANOVA, correlation, regression, chi-square, etc.). Coverage also includes materials for several statistics packages (e.g., SPSS, JASP, R) Here is a link for a basic course. There

## Jamovi Assignments that Teach Climate Change

Kimberly A. Barchard (LinkedIn), Matthew R. Helm, John D. Watt , Kaelyn Griffin, from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas have created a series of Jamovi assignments. These 10 assignments include step-by-step instructions to take students from the basics of opening data files to the complexities of creating a professional conference poster (complete with literature review, method, results, graph, and

## Video: Introduction to R

This is a short video (5:20) from MarinStatsLectures introducing students to using R. It is the first in a series that will be a fantastic resource for both face-to-face and online teaching. Click here for a link to the complete playlist. If you check out the MarinStatsLectures page, you’ll also find lots of videos on

## Video: One-Way ANOVA (SPSS for Beginners)

Video (11:19) from Research by Design described as follows, “Using the same example from the Wizard of Oz involving Munchkins and wicked witches in various regions that we used learning ANOVA by hand, we are going to learn about conducting a one-way ANOVA using SPSS. We will create the dataset in SPSS, conduct a one-way

## Video: Chi-Square (SPSS for Beginners)

Video (7:37) from Research by Design described as follows, “We are now going to learn how to calculate a one-way chi-square in SPSS. This is the House of Pigs Chi Square, using the dataset BuildingPermits.sav. A house inspector randomly samples building permits pulled by 70 little pigs who were building houses, to determine whether a

## Video: Independent-Samples t-test (SPSS for Beginners)

Video (8:11) from Research by Design and Dr. Todd Daniel, described as follows, “Another way of measuring the difference between two samples is to compare two unrelated groups or participants or samples. In this design, you measure two groups one time; in contrast, the previous paired test measured the same sample two times. With independent

## Video: One Sample and Paired-Samples t-test (SPSS for Beginners)

Video (6:02) from Research by Design and Dr. Todd Daniel, described as follows, “When we calculate the mean of a sample, we can then use a one-sample t test to compare that sample mean to another mean, such as a mean from a population, a normative group, or another known value (mean). The “one sample”

## Video: Correlation (SPSS for Beginners)

Video (9:52) from Research by Design and Dr. Todd Daniel, described as follows, “Using the dataset we created in the first video, we now explore the relationship between our two scale-level variables: height and weight. We will use Pearson’s correlation to measure this relationship. We will also learn about a point biserial correlation with gender.”

## Video: Frequencies and Descriptive Statistics (SPSS for Beginners)

Video (14:01) from Research by Design and Dr. Todd Daniel, described as follows, “Having learned how to create a variable, you are ready to begin entering data. Dr. Daniel begins with descriptive statistics (numbers that describe our data) and shows you how to do some basic data cleaning and data exploration with the Frequencies command

## Video: Introduction to SPSS & Creating Variables (SPSS for Beginners)

Video (10:15) from Research by Design and Dr. Todd Daniel, described as follows, “Are you ready to learn how to use SPSS for your introductory statistics class? You have come to the right place. This is the first in a series of eight videos that will introduce you to using SPSS for introductory statistics. This

## Video: How to Do Chi-Square in JASP

Video (10:27) from Research by Design in which, “We learn how to calculate a One-Way Chi-Square goodness of fit test in JASP using the setting for Multinomial Test. For the null hypothesis, we assume that the observed values in one group (the Pigs) do not differ from the values in a comparison population (the Bears)

## Video: How to Do Simple Linear Regression in JAS

Video (23:18) from Research by Design in which, “Exploring our data about burnout and job satisfaction, we predict an outcome with a single variable using simple linear regression in JASP. I explain how regression works, then open an SPSS dataset in JASP. We explore the assumptions of homoscedasticity and linearity with a scatterplot and normality

## Video: How to Do a Pearson Correlation in JASP

Video (18:47) from Research by Design in which, “Using a dataset about burnout and job satisfaction, we learn how to conduct a simple correlation, how to interpret it, and how to write it up in APA style. We begin by exploring the theoretical relationship among the variables to understand how correlation works. After we walk

## Video: How to Do an One-Way ANOVA in JASP

Video (14:02) from Research by Design in which, “We are off to see the wizard with an example of a one-way (factorial) ANOVA involving wicked witches and munchkins. We open a .CSV dataset in JASP, check the assumptions of homogeneity of variance and normality, conduct the test, interpret the results, and write up the findings
