JMP Student Edition 14: New and improved for the classroom

With data impacting every industry and area of study these days, it is more important than ever that students gain practical skills in making sense of data. For most students, their introduction to these vital concepts is limited to a single introductory statistics course, usually satisfying a graduation requirement. Fortunately, these courses have access to JMP Student Edition for easy access to modern data analysis and visualization.
JMP Student Edition is the streamlined version of JMP designed for any type of introductory statistics course offered at high schools, colleges, and universities. (We've got a comparison of JMP and JMP Student Edition.) Its intuitive, interactive and visual interface make data analysis fun and engaging. Its menu-driven, point- and-click interface, and Windows and Mac compatibility make it easy to use and an ideal companion for learning statistics.

With the latest release of Student Edition, based on JMP 14.1, students get access to an even wider range of statistics, analytics and visualization platforms. New and improved features of JMP Student Edition 14 include:

  • The license is extended to three years, so students can apply their statistical knowledge in their future studies.
  • Simulation (in addition to Bootstrapping) is built into each appropriate platform with a simple right click on the statistic of interest. This is a fantastic feature for instructors who wish to emphasize randomization and resampling to motivate inference!
  • New Formula Column functions have been added to the data table allowing the user to easily generate new columns such as transformations, or sampling with or without replacement by simply right clicking on a column of interest.
  • The new Applets menu includes concept demonstration tools that help convey fundamental ideas such as probability, sampling distributions, confidence intervals, and regression. Easy-to-access, they also feature the ability to use your own data to demonstrate these concepts.

  • New and expanded visualizations are built into the Graph Builder platform, including parallel plots, street maps and dot plots. Statistical output options have also been added to appropriate graphs.

  • Images can now be imported as data in a column and used in visualizations or as markers in graphs.
  • A new Summary Statistics report is provided in the default Fit Y by X output.
  • New Robust fit options are included in univariate and bivariate platforms.
  • New resources including classroom activities, case studies, recorded webinars and how-to guides are freely available at
  • Classification and regression trees now include the option to specify a validation portion a feature that will be very useful for the many intro statistics courses that are now starting to introduce concepts of data science and big data applications,
  • There is no longer a limit on data size, so big data problems are welcome in JMP Student Edition!

  • To facilitate student projects and communicating results, JMP Student Edition now features a direct to PowerPoint as well as an interactive web report.

The latest version is now easier to get. Many leading textbooks include access to download a free copy of JMP Student Edition through an authorization code packaged in their print or e-text products. To use JMP SE without a textbook, go to Qualified instructors may request an evaluation copy by completing a form.

High schools may now apply for a schoolwide grant for JMP Student Edition by simply agreeing to use it in the course. For more information, please contact Chuck London at
