Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now you can become intelligent consumers of scientific research, without being overwhelmed by the statistics! Jaccard and Becker's book teaches readers the basic skills for analyzing data and helps them become intelligent consumers of scientific information. Praised for its real-life applications, the book tells readers when to use a particular statistic, why they should use it, and how the statistic should be computed and interpreted. Because many readers, given a set of data, cannot determine where to begin in answering relevant research questions, the authors explicate the issues involved in selecting a statistical test. Each statistical technique is introduced by giving instances where the test is most typically applied followed by an interesting research example (each example is taken from psychology literature).
