This text stresses conceptual development and the logic of statistics for use in the Behavioral Sciences. It is designed for those who need to evaluate statistical findings. Coverage includes estimation procedures, independent samples t-test, Steven's scales of measurements, Pearson correlation coefficient. Updated to include Turkey's HSD test on factorial analysis of variance and Spearman's rho on assumption-free tests and all chapter have been edited to enhance clarity and flow, to simplify numbers in the worked problems, and to align all examples with the behavioral sciences.

Editorial Reviews

A textbook primarily for students of psychology, educations, and related fields whose only mathematical background is common arithmetic, an elementary understanding of simple equations, and the ability to plug numbers into an equation and boil them down to a single numerical answer. Emphasizes the development of concepts, but also explains procedures step-by-step with examples from the behavioral sciences. Considerably revised from the 1993 edition to lower the math requirements a half-step and focus more on fundamentals. It is also shorter, though still contains more material than most instructors would try to fit into a single semester. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
