BEST PRACTICES OF THE DEPARTMENT
TO DEVELOP THE SKILL
The Utility of SPSS Software
The Management purchased SPSS software to the tune of Rs. 2.5 lakhs for the benefit of staff and students, which is a comprehensive statistical and data management package. Its Statistical capabilities alone range from simple percentages to complex analysis of variance, multiple regression and general linear models which help to generate tabulated reports, charts, plots of distributions and trends. The Students use the software in statistics practical where they learn to analyze the data, to check for statistical significance and to interpret the data output in a manner relevant to various projects.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.
I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
