For one-semester, second-level courses in Statistics, Political Statistics, Social Statistics, Statistics in Education, and Quantitative Methods, and for supplemental use in Introduction to Statistics and Business Statistics.
This unique text on psychological statistics 1) provides the general rationale underlying many statistical procedures commonly used in psychology, 2) covers a wide range of topics—from the logic of statistical inference to multivariate analysis of variance, and 3) gives simple step-by-step instructions on how to access the relevant SPSS program. Each chapter presents a different procedure (e.g., t-tests, factor analysis, etc.), and briefly describes the basic concepts, purpose, and history necessary to understanding its strengths and limitations. A concrete example is used for each procedure, with the discussion of the SPSS output being directly linked to the underlying statistical model, so that students can see how the interpretation of results follows from the nature of that procedure.
