Overview

This book teaches basic statistics to educators in a clear, concise format. Using examples related to the school and the classroom, it impels the student to better grasp and appreciate the application of statistics to education. The second edition offers a more comprehensive text for students in statistics courses who have to carry out a research project, or for educators who want to study their own practice. It includes two new chapters-an overview of research designs, and a guide for students as they conduct their own research project. The focus is on understanding concepts, the rationale for applying and using the various statistics, and the interpretation of the results. "Practical Statistics for Educators" is accompanied by the second edition of "Workbook to Accompany Practical Statistics for Educators."

Author Biography: Ruth Ravid is a professor at National-Louis University, National College of Education, Evanston, Illinois.
