You can preview and download the dataset from this tab. The dataset is available in multiple file formats, compatible with most common software packages. You can also view and download the Codebook, which provides information on the structure, contents, and layout of the dataset.
This dataset is designed for teaching multiple regression. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 1998-99 (ECLSK) at the National Center for Education Statistics, and the example presents an analysis of whether a kindergarten student-s general knowledge performance (which includes knowledge of social studies and science) can be predicted by their performance in reading and/or math. The dataset file is accompanied by a teaching guide, a student guide, and a how-to guide for SPSS.
In this tab you will find guides on using this dataset. The Teaching Guide is designed for faculty who are teaching research methods and statistics, with suggestions on how to use the dataset in lab exercises, in homework assignments and as exam questions. The Student Guide introduces the method for students, and can be used in teaching to provide students with an introductory overview of the method or test. The How-to Guide shows how to perform the technique or test using data analysis software.
