SPSS AMOS

Description: 

IBM SPSS Amos provides structural equation modeling (SEM) to compare, confirm and refine models. It uses Bayesian analysis to improve estimates of model parameters. Users can choose either the graphical user interface or non-graphical, programmatic interface. It is available for the Windows platform only.

AMOS is available as part of Western's SPSS Premium Campus Edition Campus Value contract and can be used for teaching and non-commercial research. It can be installed on university-owned computers for use by faculty and on workstations owned by faculty or students. 

The software is $40 per license per year renewable every June. It can also be purchased by an academic College when renewing SPSS licensing.

A free trial can be downloaded at http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/spss-amos

Non-commercial academic research means research by degree seeking students and faculty members where (i) the results of such research are not intended primarily for the benefit of a third party; (ii) such results are made available to anyone without restriction on use, copying or further distribution; and (iii) any copy of any such result is furnished for no more than the cost of hosting, reproduction, and shipping. No other uses are allowed.
