Recently information communication technologies have been actively employed in education. Science is also rapidly developing regarding its exploitation of IT in manipulating obtained data through research. Designing, accomplishing scientific research, collecting data and most importantly testing and manipulating the data are the integral parts of quality research. In many cases statistical treatment of large data sets requires a great deal of resources, effort and time. Information technologies have been providing effective solutions in this process.
The article is devoted to the basics of using one of the widespread statistical data processing tools, namely, Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software, developed by IBM Inc., in conducting mathematical statistical calculations in educational research. The author also illustrates several basic statistical calculations done in SPSS.
