Pelatihan Pengolahan Data Berbasis Komputer Bagi Peneliti Pemula
Based on the observations we conducted on the students, it can be concluded that most students faced difficulties in processing research data to complete the thesis. This was due to the lack of students' understanding of research methodology and statistics as well as the students’ minimum ability to use the help of a data processing application in a computer, such as SPSS. Based on this problem, we took an initiative to carry out a community service program specifically for students who were conducting research with the theme "Computer-based Data Processing Training for Novice Researchers". The target of this activity was the final year students of STAIN BENGKALIS who were in the process of completing a thesis. The ultimate goal of this activity is: a) To improve the students' understanding of statistical science. b) To improve the students' data processing ability in using one of the research data processing software, especially SPSS.
