The GRD extension command for SPSS (Harding & Cousineau, 2014) has been used in a variety of applications since its inception. Ranging from a teaching tool to demonstrate statistical analyses, to an inferential tool used to find critical values instead of looking into a z-table, GRD has been very well received. However, some users have requested other data generation components that would make GRD a more complete extension command: the possibility to add contaminants to the generated dataset as well as the ability to generate correlated variables. Another component we added is a graphical user interface (or GUI) that makes GRD accessible through the drop-down menus in the SPSS Data Editor window. This GUI allows users to generate a simple dataset by entering parameters in dedicated fields rather than writing out the full script. Finally, we devised a small series of exercises to help users get acquainted with the new subcommands and GUI.
