This module has a significant advantage over the typical textbook, where the instructions about what to do are separated from the relevant SPSS screen shots, if there are any. It does require that the student actually read and follow the instructions given in Pp slides that hover above the SPSS window that the student has opened. A useful, but more complex addition, might be to embed in the Pp slides some video playback consisting of screen captures with narration. This would greatly increase the size of the Pp slides, but my students, if not most students today, like to be shown how to do things, rather than reading about it.

Technical Remarks:

I did not load the special software to see if it would keep the Pp slide show hovering above the SPSS screen while working in that screen. The Pp slides showing the different survey responses that were used in the date entry process had circles drawn around different responses, as in a real survey. However, these circles were not properly aligned over the possible responses on survey show in the Pp slide.

Time spent reviewing site: 15 minutes reviewing 4 of the Pp instructional slide shows.
