CAPSAS: Computer Assisted Program for the Selection of Appropriate Statistics.
Shermis, Mark D.; Albert, Susan L.
A computer-assisted program has been developed for the selection of statistics or statistical techniques by both students and researchers. Based on Andrews, Klem, Davidson, O'Malley and Rodgers "A Guide for Selecting Statistical Techniques for Analyzing Social Science Data," this FORTRAN-compiled interactive computer program was assembled to: (1) provide a "real time" decision model for selecting a particular statistic or statistical technique: and (2) serve as a prototype for "real time" decision models in research and evaluation designs. With CAPSAS, the user has interactive access to short, non-mathematical explanations of technical terms and brief descriptions of key words embedded in a question. CAPSAS can be integrated with other software computer simulation and analysis programs. (Author/CP)
