Understanding and Using Statistics in Psychology

A Practical Introduction

`There are few people who can write about research methods in a lively and engaging way, but Miles and Banyard are amongst them. As well as being an exceptionally clear introduction to research methods, it is full of amusing asides and anecdotes that make you want to read more. A hugely enjoyable book' - Dr Andy Field, University of Sussex Understanding and Using Statistics in Psychology takes the fear out of psychological statistics to help students understand why statistics are carried out, how to choose the best test and how to carry out the tests and understand them. Taking a non-technical approach, it encourages the reader to understand why a particular test is being used and what the results mean in the context of a psychological study, focusing on meaning and understanding rather than mindless numerical calculation. Key features include: - A light and accessible style - Descriptions of the most commonly used statistical tests and the principles that underlie them - Real world examples to aid the understanding of why statistics are valuable - Boxes on common errors, tips and quotes - Test yourself questions The perfect introductory resource, Understanding and Using Statistics in Psychology will guide any student new to statistics effortlessly through the process of test selection and analysis.

Optional. Extra. Interestingly (well, we think it's interesting), Bonferroni didn't have
a greatdeal to do withBonferroni correction. The proofrequired for Bonferroni
correction relies on Boole's inequality (which Bonferroni extended, but this
extension wasn't needed for Bonferroni correction). It was actually first applied by
Dunn (1961) andhence issometimes known as Dunn'scorrection. Thisisa further

Measurement, Statistics, and Research Design in Physical Education and Exercise Science: Current Issues and Trends

A Special Issue of Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science

This inaugural issue is devoted to exploring measurement, research design, and statistics issues in six subdisciplines of exercise and sport science. Originally presented at the Eighth Measurement and Evaluation Symposium, all papers in this issue reflect the work of many renowned measurement specialists and content experts in their respective fields. The articles discuss the following topics: * standards of assessment quality for physical educators and the problem of providing adequate assessment without adequate resources; * the importance of properly conceptualizing and defining appropriate research questions as the "source and solution" for measurement and design issues in reference to motor learning/control and sport and exercise psychology; * the study of individuals -- single-subject and other small-sample designs -- in contrast to the more traditional study of groups; and * the importance of computing and reporting statistical power in research.

Why a measurement journal in physical education and exercise science? All
good measurement techniques and tools currently in use within physical
education and exercise science ultimately resulted from quality measurement
research. The question arose, “Where can measurement research be published?
” Although some publications contain information about measurement research,
they are very spe— cific to certain content areas. Because most measurement
research in ...

An Introduction to Statistics

An Active Learning Approach

An Introduction to Statistics is the ideal text for incorporating an active learning approach to the subject of introductory statistics. Authors Kieth A. Carlson and Jennifer R. Winquist carefully explain fundamental statistical concepts in short, easy-to-understand chapters, then use empirically developed workbook activities to both reinforce and expand on these fundamental concepts. These activities are self-correcting so students discover and correct their own misunderstandings early in the learning process. This approach enables students to be responsible for their own learning by helping them to "read with purpose. Based on contemporary memory research (e.g., the testing effect, embedded reading questions), the text is designed to actively engage students while they generate explanations, which leads to better long term retention. It also contains more traditional student aids including carefully developed learning objectives, realistic research scenarios, practice problems, and self-test questions.

An Active Learning Approach Kieth A. Carlson, Jennifer R. Winquist. BenZvi,
2008), our primary goal when creating the activities was to encourage students to
learn by doing. The most current, but unfortunate, label for this approach to ...
