SPSS is a computer program used for text analytics and statistical analysis. It was originally its own company and stood for Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, but was purchased by IBM in 2009. SPSS is used in both Social and Natural Sciences here at Colorado College.
SPSS is available in the Barnes, Palmer 2, Psychology Department, Math and Library North Basement labs, and via the SAS terminal server.
This software uses a network license, which means
- we can install it on any college-owned computer on campus
- to use the software, you need to be on the CC network
- plugged in to the network on campus
- or on WiOfTheTiger
- or via VMware View if you're off campus
If you are a faculty member and need SPSS on your college-owned portable computer, contact Weston Taylor.
