Assuming no familiarity with statistical methods, this text for language education research methods and statistics courses  provides detailed guidance and instruction on  principles of designing, conducting, interpreting, reading, and evaluating statistical research in classroom settings or with a small number of participants.  While three different types of statistics are addressed (descriptive, parametric, non-parametric) the emphasis is on non-parametric statistics because the number of participants in small-scale studies in language education is typically small; thus the conditions for use of parametric statistics is minimal.  Designed to help students and other language education researchers to identify and use analyses that are appropriate for their studies, taking into account the number of participants and the shape of the data distribution, the text includes sample studies to  illustrate the important points in each chapter and exercises to promote understanding of the concepts and the development of practical research skills. Mathematical operations are explained in detail, and step-by-step illustrations in the use of R (a very powerful, online, freeware program) to perform all calculations are provided. A Companion Website extends and enhances the text.
