Summary: This paper discusses the use of interactive graphics to teach multivariate data analysis to Psychology students. Three techniques are explored through separate activities: parallel coordinates/boxplots; principal components/exploratory factor analysis; and cluster analysis. With interactive graphics, students may perform important parts of the analysis "by hand," using techniques such as pointing at, selecting and changing the colors of the points/observations. Our experience demonstrates that this approach is very useful when teaching an intermediate/advanced course on multivariate data analysis to students of Psychology, who tend to have low to moderate proficiency in Mathematics.
