There are so many statistical softwares, why should I choose StatEL ?
Do you know enough statistics to identify at any time the most suitable statistical test? Are you able to check the conditions of use for the test you plan to practice by yourself? Are you able to verify the homogeneity of variances/covariances and sphericity hypothesis is common for you? If applicable, can you identifiy the most suitable substitution test in case of rejection of conditions of use for your initial test? In case of regression analysis, do you know the visual procedure of graphs analysis (residuals, levers effects...) in order to evaluate quality of estimated model?
If you answer "yes" to every questions, you are a professional statistician and StatEL is not the most suitable tool for you. If not, then StatEL is made for you and it will allow you to avoid many stumbling blocks due to a misunderstanding or the misuse of statistics.
