This page has general resources for getting started with Jamovi and the resources for the key statistical techniques can be accessed on our Jamovi tests page webpage. Download a list of links for all our Jamovi resources .

Getting started with Jamovi

If you are using Qualtrics for data collection it is strongly recommended that you download the data using numeric responses in SPSS and then open in Jamovi as variable and value laels are saved automatically which saves a lot of time on data editing. If your data is in Excel, you will need to recode worded values into numbers and reduce variable names. Instructions for both are given in separate videos below.
