The Psychology Department of LSR organized a very unique skill enhancement session this Thursday- a session on making use of the SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) software. The department is known for its efforts to cater to students in creative ways and this session reiterated just that. The session was conducted by Dr. Saif Farooqi and was attended by a whole bunch of students from across the three years, alongside the Department faculty members – Dr. Bhawana Devi and Ms.Aneesha Juneja. Despite the wide spread presence of Stat blues amongst the students, the session was eagerly sought after for its practical importance. Knowledge of the software at the end of the session technically made most of the statistical procedures simple and easy. Further, the program had been organized just in time especially for the third year students who were required to make use of the software for their current assignment. Though the session was cut short due to paucity of time, it had been a period of immense skill acquisition.
