Supplementary Empirical Teaching Units in Political Science (SETUPS) are computer-related modules designed for use in teaching introductory courses in American government and politics. The modules are intended to demonstrate the process of examining evidence and reaching conclusions in a way that stimulates students to think independently and critically, with a deeper understanding of substantive content. They enable students with no previous training to make use of the computer to analyze data on political behavior.
