About the Book

Written for those without a background in statistics, this book aims to make statistics accessible to psychology and other behavioral sciences students by applying theoretical techniques to wide-ranging examples. Focusing on research design and statistical analysis, the book includes easy to understand graphs and offers guidelines on how to report statistical results.

This work tries to make learning statistics fun for students of psychology and other behavioural sciences, while emphasizing accurate application. Integration of material within each chapter aim to help students to see clear links between the statistics and the research, and helps to motivate them by illuminating the practical utility of the concepts.
The book’s final chapter poses scenarios in which students must choose the correct statistics for the appropriate problem.
