Review Quotes
"[This] is my "go to" book … for concise and comprehensive information on how to run basic statistical analysis, interpret the output and accurately present the findings in written work."-Joan L. Ellis, Washington State University, USA "This is not your usual SPSS guidebook! The text guides the reader through the research process from research question, to choice of appropriate statistics, to running SPSS, to interpretation of the SPSS output, and finally to writing up results. It should be very useful to applied researchers."- Richard Lomax, The Ohio State University, USA "[This book] is appropriate for all levels of SPSS users in its transparency of the "how-to" process. At the same time, a comprehensive conceptual foundation is incorporated-such that it could be used nearly as a standalone statistics textbook." Debbie Hahs-Vaughn, University of Central Florida, USA "This textbook provides a step-by-step approach to using IBM SPSS to conduct various parametric and nonparametric analyses, from descriptive statistics to analysis of variance. The numerous visual displays, including screenshots and write-ups, make this textbook exceptional."- Tony Onwuegbuzie, Sam Houston State University,USA "The authors present illustrative examples and screen shots to clarify the process of analyzing and interpreting data, thereby making this book an excellent resource for graduate students conducting research and professors teaching methods courses and statistics.- Kathleen M.T. Collins, University of Arkansas, USA "Using SPSS for Introductory Statistics as a guide through statistical analysis since 2003 has been a real lifesaver. Since I do not do statistical analysis every week, having a "cookbook" to help remind me of how to use SPSS quantitative data analysis software is extremely helpful."-David E. Gunderson, Washington State University, USA

Main Description
This book distinguishes itself from other SPSS resources through its unique integration of the research process (including design) and the use and interpretation of the statistics. Designed to help students analyze and interpret research data, the authors demonstrate how to: choose the appropriate statistic based on the design, interpret SPSS output, and write about it in a paper. The statistics are described in a user-friendly, non-technical style. The book prepares students for all of the steps in the research process, from design and data collection, to writing about the results. Several related statistics are included in each chapter. The book features discussions of writing about outputs, data entry and checking, reliability assessment, testing assumptions, and descriptive, inferential, and nonparametric statistics. SPSS syntax, along with the output, is included for those who prefer this format.The new edition features:IBM SPSS version 18 but the book can also be used with older versions of SPSS.New problems and a new discussion about the use of the SPSS expanded graphics program.Expanded discussion of effect size measures (Ch. 7), how to write about descriptive statistics (Ch. 5), and Getting Started with SPSS (Appendix A).Modified write-up examples to meet the new formatting guidelines outlined in the 6th edition of the APA Publication Manual (2010).Flowcharts and tables to help select the appropriate statistic and interpret statistical significance and effect sizes (Ch. 6).Two real data sets found at www.psypress.com are used to solve the chapter problems.Password protected Instructor's Resource materials with PowerPoint slides, answers to interpretation questions, extra SPSS problems, and more found on the book's textbook resource page at www.psypress.com.IBM SPSS for Introductory Statistics, Fourth Edition provides helpful teaching tools:all of the key IBM SPSS windows needed to perform the analysescomplete outputs with call-out boxes to highlight key pointsinterpretation sections and questions to help students better understand and interpret the output with answers to the odd-numbered questions in the book.lab assignments organized the way students proceed when they conduct a research projectmany charts and tables to help select the appropriate statisticextra problems for practice in running and interpreting SPSShelpful appendices on how to get started with SPSS, write research questions, and create tables and figures.
