Summary: This text is designed with the novice computer user in mind by beginning with the basic tasks such as defining variables and entering and saving data. Each section describes the statistic being used, important underlying assumptions, and how to interpret the results and express them in a research report. The text contains over 200 screen shots demonstrating use of the program and output, as well as exercises designed to help students achieve 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. Clear, step-by-step instructions get students off to a good start with SPSS 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 chapter is divided into short sections. After students master the basics in Chapters 1 and 2, the book can be used in a nonlinear manner since each section is self-contained. This allows you maximum flexibility in coordinating this book with the main statistics textbook your students will be using.
• 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.
• More than 200 screen shots (including sample output) throughout the book show students exactly what to expect as they follow along using SPSS.
• Exercises throughout the book give students stimulus material to use as they practice to achieve mastery of the program.
