Students are guided through the complete analysis process from performing a statistical analysis to the rationale behind doing so. In addition, management of data, including how and why to recode variables for analysis, how to "clean" data, and how to work around missing data, is discussed. Features * Research Examples - are used to illustrate key points in the text and to stimulate students' thinking about research questions and analytic options. * Clear, "user friendly" style - used in this book was designed to make the content digestible and nonintimidating. Concepts are introduced carefully and systematically, difficult ideas are presented clearly. * Specific practical tips on performing analyses - every chapter includes several tips for applying the chapter's lessons to real-life situations. * Guidance on presenting statistical results - indicates what information to report in the text versus in tables and figures, and includes exemplary tables that can be used as templates for many statistical analyses. * Exercises - Student exercises are included at the end of every chapter. * Power Point slides - offer a more dynamic and colorful way to review textbook content, and also provide explicit guidance for undertaking SPSS analyses. * Further aids to student learning - bolded terms when new concepts are introduced; succinct, bulleted summaries at the end of each chapter; and tables and figures that provide examples and graphic materials in support of the text discussion.
