Intellectus Statistics

Smarter Tools for Enhanced Learning™

Our Story

Intellectus Statistics was founded with the objective to provide statistics software where students understood their analyses and it was easy to use.

The problem: existing software output was difficult interpret and difficult to use.  The traditional response was to hire faculty to help students with their analyses, students pay consultants hundreds of dollars, watch YouTube videos, or purchase expensive survival guides.

We created Intellectus Statistics as an alternative.

By starting with students’ needs, streamlining the analysis decision process, and describing findings in English, we’re able to offer better software.

We believe that conducting and interpreting statistics should be easy.  It should leave students with an understanding of what the data tells them.

There’s nothing complicated.  Smarter tools, enhanced learning.

Mission

Our mission is to provide undergraduate and graduate students the world-class, context-sensitive, statistical analysis tool.  We endeavor to put content into context at every step of the conducting and interpreting of data analysis process.  Intellectus Statistics strives to be evermore comprehensive in functionality, user-friendly, and affordable.  Intellectus Statistics will continue to meet the global needs of students when providing our statistical software.

Our Software

Intellectus Statistics is a browser-based technology enabling undergraduate and graduate students to conduct statistical analyses with context-based expert guidance and produces a summary of the findings that accurately describes the outcomes of the analyses.  The tool builds students’ confidence, data analytic skills, and can shorten students’ time-to-completion.

Superior option to SPSS.  Beyond covering the most relevant functionality of SPSS, Intellectus is a better option because the tool’s context-based learning principles permeate the entire program.  At every decision point, content is placed in a meaningful context: (1) the in-depth interpreted output complements raw output, (2) interpreted preloaded assumptions, and (3) scroll-overs define statistical terms, symbols, and plots.  Recently, an independent lab study showed statistically significant differences in Perceived Usability and Ease of Use compared to SPSS, and Intellectus had a higher preference rating compared to SPSS (paper coming soon).

More affordable than SPSS.  Intellectus’ subscription is as low as $39/year per student (and it is FREE for faculty teaching courses).  With a single agreement, one link allows all students and faculty full access, and, as a cloud-based solution, there is no messy installation issues.

Patented Technology.  Intellectus Statistics secured a patent (Patent No. US 9,792,283) on October 17, 2017, entitled Method and System for Presenting Statistical Data in a Natural Language Format. The patent award demonstrates the innovation of the tool and highlights context-based learning that engages students and brings statistics to life.

Testimonials

“The California State University Southern California DNP program is partnering with Intellectus Statistics (IS) in a pilot venture with five of our DNP students. These students are using the IS software program and consultative statistical services during the implementation and evaluation phases of their quality improvement project in their various practice settings. The DNP students have all remarked that the IS software program is very intuitive and user friendly. In addition, the DNP students have benefited from the mentorship of the IS statistical consultant and are impressed by about the quality of support that has been given to them. The DNP faculty who overseeing the students have seen tremendous growth in their students’ comfort level in understanding and in their ability to appropriately analyze and interpret the findings of their project.”

Dr. Margaret Brady, PhD, RN, CPNP-PC,  CSU Southern California DNP Consortium

“Intellectus Statistics has been an incredibly valuable resource. Dr. Lani has innovative software and provides high quality deliverable products based on your needs. I find the easy to follow explanations of each specific statistical test utilized to be extremely beneficial for my graduate students as they move from data collection to data analysis. These explanations in combination with high quality tables and graphs have provided much needed support and structure on several recent projects. Students have always had positive experiences and benefited substantially from the product and I highly recommend Intellectus Statistics.”

“The California State University system has benefited substantially from doctoral candidates using Intellectus Statistics™ in their data analysis and interpretation. I myself conduct statistical analyses, have used it, and have found its comprehensiveness and clarity to be outstanding.”

Joan Bissell, Ed.D.
Director, Teacher Education and Public School Programs Office of the Chancellor California State University

“One of the elements of IS that caught my attention was the “narrative analysis” of the numerical output of statistical procedures. In terms of levels of learning, synthesis is far more difficult than analysis. With SPSS, we had to climb the theoretical mountains of “research design” and “statistical analysis.” Then we had to climb the procedural mountains to put plans into practice. Then we had to climb the interpretative mountain (What do the print-outs mean? What in all that mass of output is important to my study?). Finally, after having scaled these educational mountains, my students faced the highest mountain of all — how do I put all of this together in a new project on my own?

From what I have seen in the examples, there will still be mountains to climb — the languages must be masters — but using IS appears to be more intuitive and straightforward than SPSS. Best of all, the explanation generated by IS will be easier for students to interpret (analysis) than writing a meaningful explanation from scratch (synthesis). I want my students to do credible designs and analyses, but I’ve never expected them to become statisticians. My goal is to provide students the best statistical tools possible for conducting meaningful research in their major. I believe IS will allow this to happen more effectively and with less wasted effort.

I have taught graduate level research design and statistical analysis (Educational Research) for 35 years: 31 at Southwestern Bapt Theological Seminary (School of Educational Ministries) here in Fort Worth, where I live, and for the last 4 at New Orleans BTS. NOBTS has just created a new EdD degree and I am teaching courses (Master’s and doctoral) in Research and Statistics to support their dissertation research. Foundations of Education is my field (principles of teaching, educational psychology, philosophy of education, teaching ministry of the church). So I see IS as a real partner in helping ministerial students connect credible data collection with appropriate data analysis and interpretation of results.”

“Dr. James Lani helped me tremendously with the data analysis of my Doctor of Nursing Practice project. In a matter of minutes, he was able to generate a meaningful report outlining the significance of my data in a seamless, streamlined fashion. He was extremely knowledgeable, expeditious, and helpful. Thank you for saving me from hours of work and providing me with a quality report for my project!”

Doctor of Nursing Practice student at University of South Florida

“I used your software yesterday, it was so great, I got the exact results I got from SPSS. I wish someone introduced me to your site last month, before spending all my time on SPSS, and before spending two weeks writing my results section of my dissertation. I will share this site to my future students.”

Husain Ebrahim, PhD
University of Kansas

“The software, Intellectus Statistics, is absolutely incredible!  I have never seen anything like it.  The data that is inputted and analyzed is literally returned to you in full APA format.  The results were superior and the support is just unmatched.  Intellectus Statistics is 100% quality with impeccable service.  I am forever grateful and will be recommending them to ALL my colleagues and Professors.  Thank you so much!”

Robyn C. Ward

“As a graduate school professor handling research I have recommended Intellectus as the tool of choice. They found it very easy to understand and have learned a lot on how results are analyzed and interpreted-the Intellectus way!”

Dr. Julito Pabriga
Dean, College of Business

“My students preferred Intellectus over SPSS. Even though they have free access to SPSS, they would rather pay $35 than have to struggle with the program. Plus, the explanations of the statistics have been of great assistance and of course they love the tables, figures, and having it presented in APA format.”

Dr. Allyn Byars, PhD
Angelo State University

“I wanted to share with you my doctoral nursing project poster in the works and the results sections using all intellectus software. Also, under acknowledgements I wanted to show my appreciation for all of your help along with Jeanine and Melissa’s help. The software really made me understand and interpret my findings easier.

I will be sure to mention this among all the faculty during my formal presentation later this month for future doctoral students and or students in a graduate level statistics course.

Thanks again!”

Marian Dam, ARNP, FNP-BC, CCTN
DNP Student
