IBM's SPSS statistics program can be installed by a faculty member on their office or research lab computers. The steps below are for campus Windows computers. Instructions are also available for campus Macs and for personal devices.
ATTENTION! Davidson does not expect to renew the SPSS site license after the 2021-22 academic year, as faculty teaching with it have chosen to switch to jamovi. If you will continue to need SPSS for research after June 2022, please let T&I know.
Click on the Windows Start button in the lower left corner of the Windows desktop.
Type software center and Windows will automatically begin searching your hard drive.
In the search results, click on the Software Center app.
In the left panel, click on Applications.
Click on the large SPSS Statistics icon to launch the installation.
Click on the Install button.
Click on the OK button to verify that you are using SPSS for teaching and academic research only. At Davidson, SPSS is not licensed for administrative or operational use.
Once installation is complete, it is recommended that you restart your computer.
