We now have a license for all WSU students to download a copy of SPSS, the best-known commercial statistical software package. Any registered student is entitled to download a copy to their personal computer for free. Because of the way SPSS is licensed, it is only valid until the end of June of this year, but students can update the license starting in July 2015.
Because access is online students can do the download 24/7. They just need to visit
and log in with their WSU AccessID and password. Click ‘Student Software’, then choose SPSS from the column on the left, then select the product wanted. Detailed instructions can be found here.
Availability is restricted to students enrolled in a degree program. It must be installed on a personally-owned computer, and cannot be used for work-related purposes by those who are also employees (and, alas, it’s not available for free for those who are ‘just’ employees). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if there are problems getting to the SPSS link.
