  11. 11. You Saved Us! Dr. Deb, …I finally got that da*n link to open in SPSS. I had to put it on the desktop to make it happen, but it worked. I need to express my most sincere thanks for providing me with support and guidance. Without you as our savior, we would all fall by the wayside. I don't know what they are paying you, but it can't be enough for what you do. Thanks so much, Donny
  12. 12. A Pleasant Common Ground Found Deborah, Just wanted to say thank you for the quality of the webinars you are providing. I watch/listen to the recordings and they are extremely helpful. It got me through a rough patch with installing SPSS, and that was the first couple webinars. I enjoyed hearing about you and husband’s musical/recording background. Interestingly enough, I do my warm-ups and drills while listening to your SI. And yes there is a madness to my method, I can improve my playing AND learn from the webinars simultaneously. So...yeah. Thanks! Much appreciated Warmly, Brian

  15. 15. Ever the Professional Deborah, Thanks for your professional response [to the student,] Deborah. Dr. Johnson
  16. 16. The fearless SI Instructor From the Professor: Our fearless SI Instructor, Deborah Anderson, has posted a converted version of the DAT file for SPSS in Updates / Handouts. It's CONVERTED. That means you don't have to go through the trouble of figuring out how to turn it into a different file format. Yes, Deborah Anderson rocks. To be candid, she may be the best SI I've ever worked with, so let me be clear: Go to Updates / Handouts right now, get that file, and thank your supremely lucky stars you ended up in this section because without Deborah Anderson, things would be pretty messy.
  17. 17. The Professor Speaks Pt 2 From the Professor: Deborah Anderson, the best SI instructor this side of the Matrix, posted a grades.sav file in Updates / Handouts.

And feel free to post to the Updates and Handouts section. I used to post a lot in this section. I look forward to working with you this quarter! Influential Statistics Professor Ph.D.

I will plan my schedule accordingly to listen to all your webinar recordings! You're amazing! Diana

  41. 41. Genuine Person… Hi Deborah, Obviously, we haven't known each other very long but your strength appears to be more than just the number of hours you've been giving away free (I'm sorry about this, by the way -- I know how that is :-) but also the fact that you work every bit as smart as you work hard. You are thinking through solutions and anticipating problems: This is extremely helpful to everyone in the courseroom. … continued …
  42. 42. … who solves the problems! … continued … You are also taking responsibility for finding these solutions -- really solving the problems -- as opposed merely to vocalizing some fixes robotically. This not only says a lot about who you are as an intellectual but who you are as a person. The more I do this, the more I realize just how important it is to care, to care GENUINELY, for what the learners are trying to do, and for what we are trying to do for them. Thank you for being and doing all those things, Deborah. I've meant every word I've said; you've earned them. The Warm and Friendly PhD
  43. 43. Wow – You Covered Everything I Needed! Hi Deborah! Thank you for getting back to me so quickly!
