AUTHORS: Jaccard/Becker - ©2010
Now you can become an intelligent consumer of scientific research, without being overwhelmed by the statistics! Jaccard and Becker’s STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES, Fifth Edition, helps you develop the basic skills you’ll need to analyze data and helps you become a smart consumer of scientific information. Praised for its real-life applications, the book tells you when to use a particular statistic, why you should use it, and how the statistic should be computed and interpreted. When given a set of data, most students cannot determine where to begin in answering relevant research questions; so, the authors explicate the issues involved in selecting a statistical test to help you get started and learn to do the same on your own. Each statistical technique is introduced by giving instances where the test is most typically applied followed by an interesting research example (each example is taken from psychology literature).
