Calculating Basic Statistical Procedures in SPSS
Calculating Basic Statistical Procedures in SPSS: A Self-Help and Practical Guide to Preparing Theses, Dissertations, and Manuscripts, is authored by John R. Slate and Ana Rojas-LeBouef from Sam Houston State University and endorsed by the NCPEA. The textbook was written to make statistical analysis less threatening and less anxiety-producing than many persons find it to be. The authors have written this textbook in hopes of facilitating individuals’ success in using SPSS for their statistical analyses; in interpreting the SPSS output properly; and in writing statistical results correctly.
This book will assists graduate students and faculty members, as well as undergraduate students, in their use of the Statistical Package of the Social Sciences-PC (SPSS-PC) versions 15-19. Specifically, we have generated a set of point-and-click steps and screenshots to depict each important step in conducting basic statistical analyses. Additionally, model writeups of statistical results were developed because many students have extensive difficulties in describing statistical results in a meaningful manner. By following the step-by-step nature of each model writeup, readers will be able to write their own results section in a manner compliant with APA 6th edition.
