Advanced Statistics in Research: Reading, Understanding and Writing Up Data Anaylsis Results; makes multivariate statistics accessible to all readers--including those with little training in research or data analysis; Advanced Statistics in Research is the easiest guide to the most advanced statistical procedures used in research: multiple regression, discriminant analysis, logistic regression, MANOVA, ANOVA, ANCOVA, factor analysis, path analysis, structural equation modeling, meta-analysis, and more. It does not show how to statistical analyses. Instead, it shows how to read and understand the results from these analyses as they are typically reported in research articles.Writing the Results Section: Students and researchers learning APA format will see many examples of statistical procedures that have been summarized for the section of journal articles.
