Foundations of Behavioral Statistics: An Insight-Based Approach

Foundations of Behavioral Statistics: An Insight-Based Approach

With humor, extraordinary clarity, and carefully paced explanations and examples, Bruce Thompson shows readers how to use the latest techniques for interpreting research outcomes as well as how to make statistical decisions that result in better research. Utilizing the general linear model to demonstrate how different statistical methods are related to each other, Thompson integrates a broad array of methods involving only a single dependent variable, ranging from classical and robust location descriptive statistics, through effect sizes, and on through ANOVA, multiple regression, loglinear analysis and logistic regression. Special features include SPSS and Excel demonstrations that offer opportunities, in the book’s datasets and on Thompson’s website, for further exploration of statistical dynamics.

    Kindle recently released an update to support print page numbers however this text has not yet been offered with the print page numbers. As a graduate student this is quite annoying. Often times my professor will simply email us “read pages 24-30” without listing the topic, or turn to page ___ in class. I love the fact that I can read my textbook wherever without the extra back pain, but would love to know what pages I’m reading in order to keep up with everyone else in class.

    This review is from: Foundations of Behavioral Statistics: An Insight-Based Approach (Paperback)

    This is a great book for all ages including elementary school kids. My fourth grader enjoyed reading the chapter on central tendendy — mean, median and mode — and she doubly enjoyed reading about these things through an easy to read graduate level textbook while learning them at school at the same time. She asked to keep that book for her. I wish I had that book when I was a fourth grader as well!

    It includes many examples from real life studies — including an example from the famous LibQUAL+(R) protocol that libraries all over the world use to evaluate their services. You get extra bonus marks if you can explain the LibQUAL+(R) example and you are a librarian!

    Recently I started back to school to obtain my PhD in Marketing. I have been having trouble remembering all my statistical terms since the last time I was in school 20+ years ago for my MBA. This text is SOO VERRRYY Helpful! It is humorous and in Layman’s word for understanding. Highly recommend if being asked to do your MANOVA’s ANOVA’s Chi Sq & Z’s again.
