Explains the conceptual foundations of statistical analyses (particularly inferential statistics), emphasizing the research context. Teaches students how to ``work the formulas′′ by presenting cleary defined steps for dealing with statistical problems. Covers chi–square and other nonparametric tests, one/two–way and repeated–measures ANOVA, data analytic procedures such as linear correlation and regression. Boxed features highlight the topics under discussion using published and unpublished research and contain biographical sketches of luminaries in the field of statistics. Each chapter concludes with an extended summary, the relevant formulas and numerous work problems.
