Statistical Advising and Online Survey Advising Services - Fall 2014

Advisers work only during the fall and spring semesters.

Advisers can answer basic, how-to questions about procedures and/or provide minimal interpretive help with the results of analyses when using Loyola-supported statistical applications.

Walk-in support is provided by statistical computing advisers in open access labs. Service is on a first-come, first-served basis and is designed to serve the needs of undergraduate and graduate students who have basic questions about particular procedures in the most commonly-used of Loyola's supported statistical analysis software packages: Minitab, R, SAS, and SPSS. The advisers are senior graduate students with backgrounds in research methods and quantitative research design and analysis and an excellent working knowledge of one or more supported statistical applications. Advisers work on a fixed schedule during class sessions.

Advisers offer limited consultation for graduate students on thesis or dissertation research.

Assistance includes advice regarding the following: the selection of appropriate statistical models for analyzing data, data set design, statistical software programming, interpretation of program output to a degree appropriate to the research, and design of tables, graphs, and charts. Advisers will not run statistical analyzes for thesis or dissertation work nor assist with any writing activities.

Consulting is by appointment only. To schedule a consulting appointment contact Lauree Garvin at 773-508-7653, lgarvin@luc.edu.
