Praise for the first edition: "An excellent textbook which is well planned, well written, and pitched at the correct level for psychology students. I would not hesitate to recommend Greene and d'Oliveira to all psychology students looking for an introductory text on statistical methodology."
Bulletin of the British Psychological SocietyLearning to Use Statistical Tests in Psychology third edition has been updated throughout. It continues to be a key text in helping students to understand and conduct statistical tests in psychology without panic! It takes students from the most basic elements of statistics teaching them:
How psychologists plan experiments and statistical tests
Which considerations must be made when planning experiments
How to analyze and comprehend test results
Like the previous editions, this book provides students with a step-by-step guide to the simplest non-parametric tests through to more complex analysis of variance designs. There are clear summaries in progress boxes and questions for the student to answer in order to be sure that they have understood what they have read.The new edition is divided into four discrete sections and within this structure each test covered is illustrated through a chapter of its own. The sections cover:
The principles of psychological research and psychological statistics
Statistical tests for experiments with two or three conditions
Statistical tests based on ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) conditions as well as tests for multiple comparisons between individual conditions
Statistical tests to analyze relationships between variables
Presented in a student-friendly textbook format, Learning to Use Psychological Tests in Psychology enables readers to select and use the most appropriate statistical tests to evaluate the significance of data obtained from psychological experiments.
