Description: This book distinguishes itself from other SPSS resources through its unique integration of the research process (including design) and the use and interpretation of the statistics. Designed to help students analyze and interpret research data, the authors demonstrate how to: choose the appropriate statistic based on the design, interpret SPSS output, and write about it in a paper. The statistics are described in a user-friendly, non-technical style. The book prepares students for all of the steps in the research process, from design and data collection, to writing about the results. Several related statistics are included in each chapter.
