This course covers the basics of Data Management scripting using IBM SPSS Data Collection Author Professional. You will utilize IBM SPSS Data Collection tools to understand the survey structure and data association. Each lesson then builds on the fundamental requirements to manipulate survey and case data, while at the same time introducing best practices and recommended guidelines. You will learn about each of the events that can be accessed during the data management process, building up to a definitive, all-encompassing solution at the end of the course. The survey and case data used during this course are the solutions to the IBM SPSS Data Collection Scripting (Survey Creation) Level I course, thereby providing a sense of continuity to students from both classes.
