An Introduction to Statistical Concepts: Third Edition by Debbie L Hahs-Vaughn,Richard G Lomax

By Debbie L Hahs-Vaughn,Richard G Lomax

This entire, versatile textual content is utilized in either one- and two-semester classes to study introductory via intermediate facts. teachers decide upon the themes which are fabulous for his or her path. Its conceptual strategy is helping scholars extra simply comprehend the suggestions and interpret SPSS and study effects. Key ideas are easily said and infrequently reintroduced and concerning each other for reinforcement. a number of examples display their relevance. This version beneficial properties extra rationalization to extend realizing of the innovations. in basic terms the most important equations are included.

In addition to updating all through, the recent version features:



  • New co-author, Debbie L. Hahs-Vaughn, the 2007 recipient of the collage of valuable Florida's university of schooling Excellence in Graduate instructing Award.

  • A new bankruptcy on logistic regression versions for latest extra advanced methodologies.

  • More on computing self belief durations and accomplishing energy analyses utilizing G*Power.

  • Many extra SPSS screenshots to aid with figuring out easy methods to navigate SPSS and annotated SPSS output to help within the interpretation of results.

  • Extended sections on tips on how to write-up statistical leads to APA format.

  • New studying instruments together with chapter-opening vignettes, outlines, and a listing of key strategies, many extra examples, tables, and figures, packing containers, and bankruptcy summaries.

  • More tables of assumptions and the results in their violation together with tips to try them in SPSS.

  • 33% new conceptual, computational, and all new interpretative problems.

  • A web site that includes PowerPoint slides, solutions to the even-numbered difficulties, and try goods for teachers, and for college students the bankruptcy outlines, key techniques, and datasets that may be utilized in SPSS and different programs, and more.

Each bankruptcy starts off with an overview, a listing of key options, and a vignette concerning these techniques. sensible examples from schooling and the behavioral sciences illustrate these suggestions. each one instance examines the methods and assumptions and gives directions for a way to run SPSS, together with annotated output, and tips on how to boost an APA sort write-up. important tables of assumptions and the consequences in their violation are integrated, in addition to how you can attempt assumptions in SPSS. 'Stop and imagine' packing containers supply beneficial assistance for higher realizing the recommendations. each one bankruptcy comprises computational, conceptual, and interpretive difficulties. the information units utilized in the examples and difficulties are supplied on the internet. solutions to the odd-numbered difficulties are given within the book.


The first 5 chapters evaluate descriptive information together with methods of representing information graphically, statistical measures, the traditional distribution, and likelihood and sampling. the rest of the textual content covers inferential facts concerning capacity, proportions, variances, and correlations, simple and complicated research of variance and regression versions. subject matters now not handled in different texts resembling powerful equipment, a number of comparability and nonparametric strategies, and complex ANOVA and a number of and logistic regression versions also are reviewed.

Intended for one- or two-semester classes in information taught in schooling and/or the behavioral sciences on the graduate and/or complicated undergraduate level, knowledge of statistics isn't really a prerequisite. A rudimentary wisdom of algebra is required.
