Intellectus Statistics

Smarter Tools for Enhanced Learning™

Our Story

Over decades of statistical consulting, individuals and organizations consistently needed comprehensive quantitative analyses and quality reports without having to be statisticians. They needed the right tool to support their data management, selection of analyses, and understanding of the findings.

The problem: You have a clear idea of your variables, and research questions, and you need answers quickly. You need answers without having to have a degree in statistics. While your need for an easy to use program is great, the technology, until now, has not been available.  Given limited background, staff, and time, to conduct analyses, you need a program that delivers a presentation-ready document with descriptive and sophisticated analyses, along with publication quality graphics.

We created Intellectus Statistics to meet these needs.

By streamlining the analysis process and applying technology that describes findings in plain English, we offer a smarter alternative.

We believe that conducting and interpreting statistics and providing publication-ready plots and interpretation should be easy.  Using Intellectus puts the understanding of what the data means in your hands.

There’s nothing complicated.  Intellectus Statistics: Smarter tools, enhanced learning.

Mission

Our mission is to provide a world-class, context-sensitive, statistical analysis tool.  We put content into context at every step of the conducting and interpreting of data analysis process.  Intellectus Statistics is comprehensive in functionality, user-friendliness, and affordability.  Intellectus Statistics will continue to meet the global needs of students, faculty, and administrators.

Our Software

Intellectus Statistics is a browser-based technology enabling you 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’ and administrators’ confidence, data analytic skills, and can shorten students’ time-to-completion and expedite administrators’ reports.

Superior option to SPSS.

A 2015 study (Orfanou, Tselios, and Katsanos, 2015) reported that “perceived usability greatly affects students learning effectiveness and overall learning experience.”  The System Usability Scale (SUS) is a widely used, well-researched survey for perceived usability evaluation.  The SUS is a self-reported 10-item Likert scale questionnaire that measures overall perceived reliability.  Bangor, Kortum, and Miller (2008) cited SUS as a highly robust tool for measuring perceived usability.  The perceived usability scores range from zero to 100, where scores under 50 indicate unacceptable usability, 51 to 70 indicate marginal acceptability, and scores above 70 indicate acceptable usability (Albert, W., & Tullis, T, 2013).

In a recent study, Chen, Moran, Sun, and Vu (2018) Overall Perceived Usability using the SUS scores compared SPSS to Intellectus Statistics (IS).  The findings indicated that participants rated IS significantly more usable compared to SPSS.  The SUS scores for IS level of usability (M = 83.33, SD = 11.74) is considered acceptable, while the SUS scores for SPSS (M = 47.50, SD = 15.67) were statistically lower and considered unacceptable.

More affordable than SPSS.  Intellectus’ subscription is as low as $39/year per student, faculty, or administrator.  Set-up is easy, one link allows all students, faculty, and administrators access to the cloud-based solution. There are no messy installation or update 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 benefits administrators.

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.”

“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

“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
