The new edition of An Introduction to Statistical Concepts, is designed to help students really understand statistical concepts, the situations in which they can be used, and how to apply them to data.
Hahs-Vaughn and Lomax discuss the most popular, along with many of the lesser-known, procedures and models, whilst also exploring nonparametric procedures used when standard assumptions are violated. They provide in-depth coverage of testing assumptions and highlight several online tools for computing statistics (e.g., effect sizes and their confidence intervals and power). This comprehensive, flexible and accessible text includes a new chapter on mediation and moderation; expanded coverage of effect sizes; discussions of sensitivity, specificity, false positive, and false negative, along with using the receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve.
This book, noted for its crystal-clear explanations, and its inclusion of only the most crucial equations, is an invaluable resource for students undertaking a course in statistics in any number of social science and behavioral disciplines-from education, business, communication, exercise science, psychology, sociology and more. 127 Line drawings, black and white; 267 Halftones, black and white; 249 Tables, black and white
