  • Get a new copy of SPSS? My license has expired.

  • Working on Shimei’s evaluation. Oops – getting some kind of parse exception. Ah. I was calling the PDF parser. Cut and paste error.
    • Took terms from ratemyprofessor.com
      • Top three comments that were longer than a sentance for top three professors rated 5.0 and below, 4.0 and below, 3.0 and below. Giving a corpora consisting of 27 entries
      • Broken into three texts, sorted by LSI, with top 25% terms used
      • Centrality calculated using PageRank algorithm with terms as links
      • Culled out terms such as ‘there’ and ‘about’
      • Reweighted documents based on overall counts

      • Build likert scale questionnaire grounded in the top x terms?
