Doing Statistics with SPSS
assumes no prior understanding beyond that of basic mathematical operations and is therefore suitable for anyone undertaking an introductory statistics course as part of a science based undergraduate programme. The text will:
- enable the reader to make informed choices about what statistical tests to employ and what assumptions are made in using a particular test
- demonstrate how to execute the analysis using SPSS
- guide the interpretation of its output
Each chapter ends with an exercise and provides detailed instructions on how to run the analysis using SPSS release 10. Learning is further guided by pointing the reader to particular aspects of the SPSS output and by having the reader engage with specified items of information from the SPSS results.
