SPSS (with AMOS)

Description

Information Technology provides annual licensing for SPSS statistical software and AMOS, an add-on module for SPSS. SPSS is a comprehensive software package that includes data management, statistics, and reporting capabilities. AMOS (Analysis of Moment Structures) is a structural equation modeling program that, while it is a separate installation, is launched from within SPSS. Dr. Jeff Shockley, an Assistant Professor for the Department of Supply Chain and Information Management, uses AMOS to conduct confirmatory factor analysis for measurement models, and estimates structural equation models (models that use simultaneous equations) to empirically test theoretical models.
