Fundamental Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences, Text Only - 4th edition

Fundamental Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences, Text Only ()

Summary: With an emphasis on looking at data before jumping into a test, author David C. Howell's practical approach focuses on the context of statistics in behavioral research. This approach promotes an understanding of the logic behind the statistics: why and how certain methods are used, rather than just doing techniques by rote. Howell takes students beyond crunching numbers to discover the meaning of statistical results and how they relate to the research questions being more asked. Howell uses real data and research studies as a basis and moves through an analysis of data. As FUNDAMENTAL STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES, Fourth Edition clearly demonstrates, it is not only important to concentrate on whether there is a difference between two groups but also to understand what the difference means.


  • Real data is used in ALL examples. This puts a real-life perspective on the materials for the students and allows for much greater understanding.
  • Computer output includes SPSS®, JMP®, and MINITAB?.
  • The author puts less reliance on formulas; formulas used in the book are definitional rather than calculation. Howell believes formulas are there to help students define the concepts.
  • Hundreds of problems, most based on data from published research, promote student interest and provide the context of statistics in behavior research.
  • A focus on understanding data and the logic of statistics helps students develop a conceptual understanding and learn to interprete statistics.
  • An emphasis is placed on interpretation of computer output and the understanding of statistical results.
  • Complete chapters are devoted to the power of a test and to multiple regression. less
