Review:

"Do you teach evaluation, research methods, or statistics, or need to teach some key concepts to evaluation stakeholders? Are you in grad school and just learning social science research methods? This handy guide is a great resource for instructors and students alike, as it offers both definitions and relevant, understandable examples. Are you a visual learner? The book also features dozens of easy-to-interpret charts, tables, graphs, and figures." --Sheila B. Robinson

This book is a useful addition to anyone's library. A strength of the book is the authors' writing and presentation style; it is engaging and instructive, but not too technical.--Jann W. MacInnes

The text is very inclusive and is a solid resource for students and practitioners alike. The cross-references are extensive and helpful, and the langauge is clear and easy to understand.
--Anita G. Welch

The strengths of this book are the accessibility and ease of use, and I really like how the entries are cross referenced allowing one to learn related words and additional concepts. This text is not only a great resource for students who are learning experimental research but a must have for researchers and professionals in the field who conduct, study, teach, and utilize quantitative research in social sciences.
--Brittany Landrum

I like the book's succinct, clear approach to definitions and descriptions. Plenty of textbooks and references have lengthy, abstruse descriptions of research terminology. The SAGE Dictionary of Statistics & Methodology is a rare and welcome exception to this trend.
--Keith F. Donohue
