Computer Lab

CAAS has more than 20 PC computers available for student usage. All of our student visitors are required to check in and out of the computer lab through AccuTrack using their Whittier College ID. Printers are also available for student use.

Our computer lab is equipped with the following programs:

ChemBasic - ChemBasic is the type of macro programming that allows our chemistry students the ability to control operations within ACD/Labs, offers access to input and output of meta-variables, and provides logical control flow.

Microsoft Office - All of the standard Microsoft Office programs, such as Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Word, are installed on each of our computers. To prevent the spread of viruses and overloading our hard drive, we ask that students bring their own computer disks to save their work. If they do not bring a disk, CAAS will provide one temporarily.

SkillsBank - Many faculty who teach the first-year writing seminars incorporate SkillsBank assignments into their course syllabi. This product is a comprehensive resource for diagnosing and remediating students’ basic skills in reading, language, and writing. It also covers basic mathematics, intermediate mathematics and information skills.

SPSS - Our students in PSYC/SOC 314: Statistics use SPSS for conducting statistical analyses, manipulating data, and generating tables and graphs to summarize data.
