Summary
  • Dr. Mark Williams's the Research Assistant is a menu-driven, easy-to-use statistical program, which comes with a module which helps users determine which type of statistics they should use with a particular line of study. The program can perform up to 25 variables with 200 observations to produce various types of data output. An accompanying program, CBSG's Snapp Graph ($39.95), accepts Research Assistant's data to produce any type of graph needed on screen or printed out. It does not save data if modules are changed, and a zero division error will cause a program crash. SPSS's Statistical Package for Social Studies ($795) aids in the study of social groups where large data analyses are needed. The program performs any type of analysis, and it can be used in classroom and in administrative tasks as well. It needs 384Kbytes of memory and a 10Mbyte hard drive.
