Study Notes

SPSS Data Types and Design Requirements

  • A column specified as 'string' in SPSS accepts alphanumeric characters, including letters, numbers, and special characters.

Data Entry Requirements for Different Designs

  • When entering data from a repeated measures design with two conditions in SPSS, each participant's data should be entered on a separate row, with multiple columns representing the different conditions.
  • When entering data from an independent samples design with two conditions in SPSS, each group's data should be entered in separate rows, with a separate column indicating the group membership (e.g., 0 and 1).

Impact of Data Type on Data Entry

  • If a column is specified as 'string' in SPSS and only numbers are entered, the numbers will be treated as strings, not as numerical values.

Coding in Repeated Measures Design

  • Coding the first column in a repeated measures design in SPSS allows for identification of the participants and linking of their data across different conditions.
