James Stevens' best-selling text, Intermediate Statistics, is written for those who use, rather than develop, statistical techniques. Dr. Stevens focuses on a conceptual understanding of the material rather than on proving the results. SAS and SPSS are an integral part of each chapter. Definitional formulas are used on small data sets to provide conceptual insight into what is being measured. The assumptions underlying each analysis are emphasized, and the reader is shown how to test the critical assumptions using SPSS or SAS. Printouts with annotations from SAS or SPSS show how to process the data for intermediate statistics or statistics II courses taught in departments of psychology, education, business, and other social and behavioral sciences. A prerequisite of introductory statistics is required. An Instructor's Solutions CD is available to adopters.
