Overall System Status:
SPSS is statistical analysis software.
SPSS 22 is controlled via a license manager.
Per our license agreement, SPSS may only be installed on computers owned by Dartmouth, and used for academic teaching and research. It may not be installed on a personally-owned computer. However, all public computers at Dartmouth do have SPSS installed on them and are available as a working option.
For help with an SPSS installation on a Dartmouth-owned computer, members of the Dartmouth community must contact the IT Service Center at 646-2999, send e-mail to email@example.com, or call their department's IT support office. Academic Computing staff may download the installers
Students have the option of purchasing their own copy of the software directly from SPSS at a greatly reduced price, or leasing a copy for a fixed period of time. Students can get more information on these options at http://www.spss.com/vertical_markets/education/online.htm.
NEWS July 2014: the license server used to enable SPSS on campus is changing. Windows users should update their system configuration, or consult the resources listed above for assistance. Existing version 20 and 21 installations will continue to run after updating the license server configuration.
