“A step-by-step practical guide for interpreting research data that acknowledges the role of most students as ‘consumers of statistics rather than statisticians’….Dr. Terrell describes a simple six-step approach that can be used to help select appropriate statistical tools….The book could be used as a resource manual for the student who is seeking a plain and simple explanation of terms and concepts in statistics; but even more beneficial, the eleven chapters are organized to serve as a core textbook for most introductory courses on quantitative and qualitative research methods. Each chapter contains pedagogical features….Provides a straight-forward, no-nonsense six-step approach for interpreting and presenting research data that will stick with ‘consumers’ of statistics long after they finish reading it.”
