Research Update

Thank you. You are all tremendous!! I had so many people respond - nearly 100 in the past 36 hours - that I have closed the survey for now. There is a chance I will need to add some data and re-open, but what is more likely is that I will analyze the data now for two things: some of the trends that your responses suggest, and the quality of the questions I've devised. At some point I may revise my questions and re-open it. This analysis may take me a little while. But I will give you a report as soon as I am able.

What a generous and spirited community I have found in bloggers and blog readers- thank you!

Well, it wouldn't have been that bad to have more observations...

May - I'm afraid for now it's all my poor little grad student fingers could input!

I had not thought of that.

What software will you use to process your data?

May Excel and SPSS are fine for anything I'm going to do at this stage of the game. I've just been learning how to use some of the software for processing ERP data - which is very interesting - but I'm still a baby on it.

SPSS is used by professionals therefore it is a good choice. I suppose that you input the data in Excel and then you import it in SPSS. I am sure that you know how to code the variables (not an expert myself).
