Summary: Written for a research methods course that follows a preliminary statistics course.

  • Emphasizes conceptual, as opposed to computational, treatment of statistics focusing on the concept of power within research designs.
  • Consistently reviews the control and explanation of variability through research design and statistical analysis.
  • Provides objective evaluation of the strengths and limitations of a range of empirical techniques.
  • Active learning devices include "Research in Action" case studies, "Achievement Checks" that apply material to objective problems, innovative visual aids and visual "metaphors."
  • A student CD-ROM, "Making the Grade" comes packaged with the text.
  • Instructor's CD-ROM with test item bank available upon adoption.
