Statistical Concepts: A Second Course for Education and the Behavioral Sciences
Statistical Concepts, 3/e consists of the last 8 chapters of Richard Lomax’s best selling text, An Introduction to Statistical Concepts, 2/e. Designed for a second course in statistics, Lomax’s comprehensive and flexible coverage allows instructors to pick and choose those topics most appropriate for their course. It includes topics not found in competing texts such as the non-parametric and modern alternative procedures and advanced analysis of variance (ANOVA) and regression models. Its intuitive approach helps students more easily understand the concepts and interpret software results. Throughout the text, the author demonstrates how many statistical concepts relate to one another. Only the most crucial equations are included.
The new edition features:
Statistical Concepts, 3/e covers a number of ANOVA and regression models: one-factor; multiple comparison; factorial; ANCOVA; random- and mixed-effect; hierarchical and randomized blocks; and simple and multiple regression. Realistic examples from education and the behavioral sciences illustrate the concepts. Each example includes an examination of the various procedures and necessary assumptions, tips on developing an APA style write-up, and sample SPSS output. Useful tables of assumptions and the effects of their violation are included, along with how to test assumptions in SPSS. Each chapter concludes with conceptual and computational problems, about a third of which are new to this edition. Answers to the odd-numbered problems are provided.
