Statistical Consulting provides free one-on-one consulting services to all current Kent State faculty, staff, and student researchers. Members from any discipline and any campus are welcome!
We help clients at any stage of the research process learn how to use statistical and qualitative data analysis software. We can help you select the software that's best suited for your needs, and show you how to get the most out of it. If you're in the planning phase of your research, we can help you design a statistically sound experiment or study. If you're in the analysis stage, we can help you interpret the results of statistical tests and graphs, and advise how to present your results.
We currently support the statistical software packages SAS, SPSS, JMP, GPower, and R; the qualitative data analysis package NVivo; and the online survey platforms Qualtrics and Google Forms. We also offer limited support for Stata.
Our tutorials for SAS, SPSS, and Qualtrics are intended for new and semi-experienced users of those programs. If you're new to these programs or looking to refresh your memory, this is a good place to start.
