“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.”

“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!”

“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.”

“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!”

“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.”
