About this title

Synopsis:

Making Sense of Data and Statistics in Psychology confronts the pedagogic challenge of teaching statistics to students in psychology and related disciplines. Recognising the heterogeneous nature of students' mathematical backgrounds and motivations, the authors adopt an innovative approach while ensuring ready integration into orthodox undergraduate statistics courses at introductory and post-introductory levels. Before being introduced to formal statistics, students are encouraged to develop a 'feel' for data, particularly through visual representation. Making extensive use of exploratory data analysis (EDA), the text emphasises conceptual rather than technical or procedural understanding.

From the Back Cover:

I became a psychology student because I'm curious about why people behave as they do. Why am I expected to study statistics?'
 
Statistics is one of the most useful elements of any psychology degree. This popular textbook will equip you with the tools needed not only to make sense of your own data and research, but also to think critically about the research and statistics you will encounter in everyday life.
 
Features include:
- Logical, intuitive organization of key statistical concepts and tests with an emphasis on understanding which test to use and why
- Innovative graphic illustrations and insightful dialogues that help you to get to grips with statistics
- Concise, easy-to-follow guidelines for making sense of SPSS
- COverage of more complex tests and concepts for when you need to dig deeper
 
Making Sense of Data and Statistics in Psychology will help you design experiments, analyse data with confidence and establish a solid grounding in statistics; it will become a valuable resource throughout your studies.
 
Gerry Mulhern is Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Queen's University Belfast, UK, and was President of the British Psychological Society from 2010 to 2011.
 
Brian Greer is Adjunct Professor in the Graduate School of Education at Portland State University, USA. He has taught statistics to psychology students for many years, and has published widely on mathematics education.
