ONCE YOU ARE ENROLLED IN THIS COURSE, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CANCEL YOUR ENROLLMENT.
After you receive confirmation that you are enrolled, you will be sent further instructions to access your course material and remote labs. You will then have a 30 day window in which to complete your course. Within this 30 days, you will have 336 hours of elab time. The self-paced format gives you the opportunity to complete the course at your convenience, at any location, and at your own pace. The course is available 24 hours a day, but lab system access is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. When you are not using the elab system, ensure that you suspend your elab to maximize your hours available to use the elab system. Once you have accessed the course, help is available Monday through Friday; questions will be responded to within 24 hours.
NO EXTENSIONS FOR THIS COURSE WILL BE GRANTED.
This is the self paced training version of "Predictive Modeling with IBM SPSS Modeler" classroom course. This self paced training course demonstrates how to develop models to predict categorical and continuous outcomes, using such techniques as neural networks, decision trees, logistic regression, support vector machines, and Bayesian network models. Use of the binary classifier and numeric predictor nodes to automate model selection is included. Feature selection and detection of outliers are discussed. Expert options for each modeling node are reviewed in detail and advice is provided on when and how to use each model. You will also learn how to combine two or more models to improve prediction.
Training Paths that reference this course are:
This course follows either "Introduction to IBM SPSS Modeler and Data Mining" or Advanced Data Preparation with IBM SPSS Modeler is essential for anyone who wishes to become familiar with the full range of modeling techniques available in IBM SPSS Modeler to create predictive models.
General computer literacy. Experience using IBM SPSS Modeler (formerly Clementine) , including familiarity with the IBM SPSS Modeler environment, creating streams, reading in data files, assessing data quality and handling missing data (including the type and data audit nodes), basic data manipulation (including the derive and select nodes), and creation of models. Prior completion of Introduction to IBM SPSS Modeler and Data Mining is required and completion of Advanced Data Preparation with IBM SPSS Modeler is strongly encouraged. An introductory course in statistics, or equivalent experience, would be helpful for the statistics-based modeling techniques.
