New tutorials on MULT RESPONSE (in syntax)
I'm aiming at students and researchers who only have Gradpack or who have
never heard of SPSS, but have survey data to process (a growing population
now that academic institutions are looking for cheaper alternatives) for
many of whom English is a second language. My tutorials should work with
every release from 11 onwards and my syntax is much easier to understand
and follow than anything created by the GUI.
>>>I have nothing against syntax - I designed
a lot of it (as well as a lot of the SPSS gui), but I'm genuinely baffled.
I taught a lot of students in days of yore, and I cannot believe
that this syntax solution is easier to understand than the gui. Not
to mention that the gui is translated while syntax is not. And current
students would be on versions long past 11, so compatibility that far back
doesn't seem to be of much benefit.
