__SPSS Lab: Basics (Part 1)__

__Lab HW__

Imagine that you are working for a college admissions office. The office wants you to input data for incoming students into SPSS and produce some reports for them.

- Input the above data into SPSS. You can skip the column titled "Participant," because this is represented by the default first column in SPSS (which is numbered 1, 2, 3, etc.)
- Input Age and GPA as numbers
- Input Gender and Major as numbers with assigned values

- Transform GPA into a new variable called: GPA_rank, using the following conversion rules…
- 2.50 – 2.99 transforms into 1 (which should be labeled, "Low GPA")
- 3.00 – 3.49 transforms into 2 (which should be labeled, "Medium GPA")
- 3.50 – 4.00 transforms into 3 (which should be labeled, "High GPA")

- Compute GPA into a new variable called: GPA_percent, where the GPA scores are converted into percentages, with "4.00" representing 100%. For example, if someone has a GPA of 3.8, then they would have a percent of 3.8 / 4.0 = 95%. You can use the following formula when computing this variable…
- Equation: GPA / 4

- Create a report showing the frequency of Gender and Major
- Create a report showing the mean and standard deviation for Age and GPA_percent
- Create the following graphs
- Pie chart showing Gender
- Bar graph showing GPA_rank
