The fourth edition of the Study Guide for Practical Statistics for Educators serves as a user-friendly and accessible way for students to better understand, review, and apply the concepts introduced in its companion textbook, Practical Statistics for Educators (Ravid, 2011). Since the first edition of this study guide came out in 1994, thousands of students in educational statistics courses and their professors have found it to be an excellent guide with clear and easy-to-follow instructions and examples. The study guide allows students to reinforce and test their knowledge of the concepts addressed in each chapter of the textbook. At the end of each chapter, the best answer for each exercise is given, along with an explanation for why the correct answer is better than the other choices. New in this edition are accompanying Excel exercises, so students may perform data analysis with this commonly-used software, using data available on the web-based portal that accompanies the guide.
