STATISTICAL METHODS FOR PSYCHOLOGY surveys the statistical techniques commonly used in the behavioral and social sciences, particularly psychology and education. To help students gain a better understanding of the specific statistical hypothesis tests that are covered throughout the text, author David Howell emphasizes conceptual understanding. This Eighth Edition continues to focus students on two key themes that are the cornerstones of this book's success: the importance of looking at the data before beginning a hypothesis test, and the importance of knowing the relationship between the statistical test in use and the theoretical questions being asked by the experiment. New and expanded topics--reflecting the evolving realm of statistical methods--include effect size, meta-analysis, and treatment of missing data.

Fundamental Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences

Page: 649

FUNDAMENTAL STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES focuses on providing the context of statistics in behavioral research, while emphasizing the importance of looking at data before jumping into a test. This practical approach provides students with an understanding of the logic behind the statistics, so they understand why and how certain methods are used -- rather than simply carry out techniques by rote. Students move beyond number crunching to discover the meaning of statistical results and appreciate how the statistical test to be employed relates to the research questions posed by an experiment. Written in an informal style, the text provides an abundance of real data and research studies that provide a real-life perspective and help students learn and understand concepts. In alignment with current trends in statistics in the behavioral sciences, the text emphasizes effect sizes and meta-analysis, and integrates frequent demonstrations of computer analyses through SPSS and R.

For one-quarter/semester courses that focus on the basics in statistics or combine statistics with research methods. The fifth edition of Statistics for the Behavioral and Social Sciences builds off an already well-established approach - emphasizing the intuitive, deemphasizing the mathematical, and explaining everything in direct, simple language - but also goes beyond these principles to further student understanding. By using definitional formulas to emphasize the concepts of statistics, rather than rote memorization, students work problems in a way that keeps them constantly aware of the underlying logic of what they are doing.

• This comprehensive text covers all the traditional topics in a first-semester course. • Divided into 67 short sections, this book makes the topics easy to digest. Students regularly get positive reinforcement as they check their mastery with exercises at the end of each section. • Each exercise is based on a humorous riddle. If the answer to a riddle makes sense, students know all their answers for that exercise are correct. If not, they know they need to check their answers. • Short sections make it easy to customize your course by assigning only those sections needed to fulfill your objectives. • A comprehensive basic math review at the end of this book may be used to help students whose math skills are rusty. • Thoroughly field-tested for student interest and comprehension. The short sections and humor-based, self-checking riddles are greatly appreciated by students. • Contains Part D on effect size, which provides technical solutions to issues raised in Part C (such as the limitations of inferential statistics). New to this edition: Section 1: Explains the importance of statistical techniques in the advancement of scientific knowledge. Section 11: Provides practice with the summation operation before using it in multiple statistical tests. Section 27: This section on z-scores explains how to translate a percentile rank into a raw score. Section 30: Underlines the importance of figural representations of data, explains how to identify the most appropriate figure, and discusses how to label figures effectively. Section 41: Provides a deeper understanding of the relationship between p-values and critical values in a statistical test. Appendix J: A summary table of all statistical equations and guidelines for choosing a particular statistical test. Table 1: The format and discussion for the Table of the Normal Curve has been changed to a more conventional presentation of this statistical tool.
