This volume aims to be more accessible and visual than other texts as it instructs students in behavioral statistics courses on how to select statistical procedures appropriate for a given situation and compute and interpret an answer. It explains the logic of research and the purpose of statistics, the two major types of studies that researchers conduct, the four ways researchers measure behaviors, and topics from creating and using frequency distributions, to hypothesis testing, to chi square and nonparametric procedures. At the ends of chapters are brief sections on using SPSS. This student edition includes online study tools like additional practice problems, quizzes, flashcards, data sets, and tutorials.
