Designing Experiments and Analyzing Data A Model Comparison Perspective - 00 edition

Designing Experiments and Analyzing Data A Model Comparison Perspective (ISBN10: 080583706X; ISBN13: 9780805837063)
ISBN13: 978-0805837063
ISBN10: 080583706X

Summary: With extensive combined teaching experience, authors Maxwell and Delaney believe that it is essential to establish an integrative theme--to understand how various designs and statistical methods are interrelated--to understand the big picture of statistics. In this advanced level experimental design and analysis of variance text, Maxwell and Delaney accomplish this goal by employing a model comparison approach that takes the mystery and confusion out of statistics. O
nce students understand the underlying principles of this general approach and master a few basic formulas introduced early on, they are able to view specific formulas for each individual design they encounter as a special case of more general formulas. In short, they are able to understand the logic that should guide their choice of a technique for a particular design. Because the model comparison approach emphasizes the conceptual process of statistics, students gain a logical framework for problem solving they can use now and in the future. Your classroom then becomes a forum for discussing the interesting ideas of statistics and solving the types of problems psychologists encounter every day. Maxwell and Delaney also include these motivating tools: * Flowcharts to assist students in deciding how to choose appropriate techniques for analyzing data
* Many examples based on actual research drawn from a wide range of areas in the behavioral sciences
* Numerous end-of-chapter exercises--ranging from calculational to conceptual--with selected solutions at the back of the text
* Discussion of the logic of experimental design
* An emphasis on definitional formulas instead of computational formulas and on references to standard computer packages (SAS, SPSS, and BMDP).
