The Second Edition of this popular text has been thoroughly revised to show students how to use SPSS Version 11.0 (as well as lower versions). It is designed with the novice computer user in mind, starting with basic tasks. Each section describes the statistic being used, important underlying assumptions, and how to interpret the results and express them in a research report. Over 200 screen shots demonstrate the use of the program and output. Student exercises help students achieve full mastery of SPSS.

- Designed for use by novice computer users, this text begins with the basics such as starting SPSS, defining variables, and entering and saving data.
- This NEW EDITION provides clear, step-by-step instructions to get students off to a good start in using SPSS. Completely updated to include Version 11.0 of SPSS, it also covers Versions 8.0 through 10.0.
- All major statistical techniques covered in beginning statistics classes are included:

Descriptive statistics

Graphing data

Prediction and association

Parametric inferential statistics

Nonparametric inferential statistics

Statistics for test construction

- Each section starts with a brief description of the statistic that is covered and important underlying assumptions, which helps students select appropriate statistics. An appendix with a decision tree provides additional guidance on the selection of statistics.
- Each section describes how to interpret results and express them in a research report after the data are analyzed. For example, students are shown how to phrase the results of a significant and an insignificant t test.
- Students learn how to select appropriate statistics and how to interpret the results.
- Approximately 200 screen shots and sample output throughout the book show students exactly what to expect as they follow along using SPSS.
- A glossary of statistical terms is included, which makes a handy reference for students who need to review the meanings of basic statistical terms.
- Practice exercises throughout the book give students stimulus material to use as they practice to achieve mastery of the program.
