Publication Date



The purpose of this book is to provide students with a conceptual understanding of statistics that is firmly grounded within the framework of psychological research. The text emphasizes the use of computers in working with data, and includes instructions for entering and analyzing data using SPSS 10.0. Review exercises are included throughout each chapter (along with answers at the back of the text) so that students can check their understanding of each concept. A set of ten homework assignments is also provided. These assignments include in-class components which involve collecting, entering, and analyzing data, and take-home portions which ask students to write about their data, explaining and interpreting their results. A disk containing several data files that are used in some of the assignments is available from the author.
