Summary "Statistical analysis for Education and Psychology Researchers introduces the reader to statistical test procedures using examples of research problems and analyses from the literature of education and psychology. The reader's understanding of the concepts and how they can be used are facilitated through the consideration of statistical results as presented in the literature. Illustrations of data analysis excerpts using a pocket calculator and examples of analyses of complex data sets using proprietary computer software (SAS) are also given. Computer programmes, including sample size calculations, are presented in the appendices." --Cover
"This book has been written for researchers in education and psychology who do not have a strong mathematical background. It is designed to help researchers choose and use appropriate statistical tests in given circumstances. A decision chart is included which summarizes important considerations when choosing a statistical test. The book has three underlying aims: to help readers learn basic statistical concepts and thereby become more astute 'consumers' of research papers and reports; to enable potential 'producers' to become judicious users of statistical procedures; to help researchers use statistical software effectively - that is, to understand how results are computed and to know how to interpret computer output." --Cover
