StatPad is a CD-ROM add-in that simplifies analysis when using Excel®. Statistical methods are organized for quick and easy access, and results are placed back into the worksheet together with an explanation of the results. In addition to making computation more accessible, this approach ensures that the students will still have convenient access to statistical methods after the course is over. Many former students continue to use StatPad-and statistics-in their managerial work.
StatPad was developed by Skyline Technologies, Inc., with the assistance of Andrew F. Siegel. Through the use of familiar Windows® and Excel® style dialog boxes, with the results placed back into the spreadsheet, statistics operations essentially become part of the worksheet, just like any other spreadsheet command. By breaking down barriers to the effective use of computers, statistical concepts can be learned more quickly and painlessly.
