Expanded features help students better organize their learning experiences. IBM® SPSS® in Focus sections, updated to version 27, now follow three steps, Data Entry, Evaluating Assumptions, and Computing the Test, meaning students can move logically from hand calculations to software while incorporating best practices. Step-by-step example problems continue to walk students through the decision tree of analysis, with additional explanations and Making Sense sections providing students with in-depth breakdowns of the most challenging content. Now with over 1,000 author-developed and classroom-tested problems, the text provides students with ample opportunities to practice and check their knowledge. Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences connects students with statistics in a way that reflects not only what best practices are, but also how and why we apply them.
