Designing Experiments and Analyzing Data : A Model Comparison Perspective / With CD - 2nd edition

Designing Experiments and Analyzing Data : A Model Comparison Perspective / With CD (ISBN10: 0805837183; ISBN13: 9780805837186)
ISBN13: 978-0805837186
ISBN10: 0805837183

Summary: Through this book's unique model comparison approach, students and researchers are introduced to a set of fundamental principles for analyzing data. After seeing how these principles can be applied in simple designs, students are shown how these same principles also apply in more complicated designs. This establishes an integrative theme that shows how statistical methods appropriate for various experimental designs relate to one another. Drs. Maxwell and Delaney bel
ieve that the model comparison approach takes the mystery out of analyzing data by:
  • better preparing students to understand the logic behind a general strategy of data analysis appropriate for various designs
  • building a stronger foundation, which allows for the introduction of more complex topics omitted from other books, such as the multivariate approach to repeated measures designs. Several learning tools further strengthen the reader's understanding
  • flowcharts assist in choosing the most appropriate technique
  • an equation cross-referencing system aids in locating the initial, more detailed definition and numerous summary equation tables assist readers in understanding similarities and differences between different methods for analyzing their data
  • many examples based on actual research in a variety of behavioral sciences help students see the applications of the material
  • numerous exercises help develop a deeper understanding of the subject, through conceptual questions and focused analysis of small data sets. Detailed solutions are provided for some exercises at the back of the book
  • realistic data sets allow the reader to see an analysis of data from each design in its entirety. Updated throughout, the Second Edition features
  • significantly increased attention to measures of effects, including confidence intervals, strength of association, and effect size estimation for complex, as well as simple designs
  • an increased use of statistical packages and the graphical presentation of data
  • new chapters on multilevel models, including those for within-subject designs (Ch. 15) and hierarchical designs (Ch. 16)
  • the current controversies regarding statistical reasoning such as the latest debates on hypothesis testing (Ch. 2)
  • a new preview of the experimental designs covered in the book (Ch. 2)
  • a new appendix describing how the general linear model integrates ANOVA and regression (Appendix B, Part 1)
  • a new appendix presenting general principles of formulating statistical models (Appendix B, Part 2)
  • a CD with SPSS and SAS data sets for many of the text exercises, as well as tutorials reviewing basic statistics and simple and multiple regression
  • a Web site containing up-to-the minute examples of SPSS and SAS syntax for analyzing many of the text exercises. Appropriate for advanced courses on experimental design or analysis, applied statistics, or analysis of variance taught in departments of psychology, education, statistics, business, and other social sciences, the book is also ideal for practicing researchers in these disciplines. A prerequisite of undergraduate statistics is assumed. An Instructor's Solutions Manual is available to those who adopt the book for classroom use.
