This book is a clear and straightforward guide to analysis of variance, the backbone of experimental research. It will show you how to interpret statistical results and translate them into prose that will clearly tell your audience what your data is saying. To help you become familiar with thetechniques used in analysis of variance, there are plenty of end-of-chapter practice problems with suggested answers. As life in the laboratory doesnt always follow a script, there are both new and established techniques for coping with situations that deviate from the norm. Data analysis is not aclosed subject, so there are pros and cons for the varied situations you will encounter. The final chapter gives the first elementary presentation of functional measurement, or information integration theory, a methodology built upon analysis of variance that is a powerful technique for studyingcognitive processes. The accompanying CD contains CALSTAT, analysis of variance software that is easy to use (really!). In addition to programs for standard analysis, the software includes several specialized routines that have heretofore been presented only in journals. Analysis of Variance is animportant resource for students and professionals in the social, behavioral, and neurosciences.
David J. Weiss is at California State University, Los Angeles.

Editorial Reviews

"Those of us who have suffered its teaching tortures know the signs. Heavy lids. Furrowed brows. Empty seats. Frequent groans. And a text thicker than two planks, more expensive than a heart transplant, and read less often than the Gideon bible. The joys of teaching advanced statistics toless-than-advanced students are few (Mean = 0.3, df = 0, p 0.02). Yet there are signs of hope. Our own David Weiss has just published a thoughtful, readable, and refreshingly short textbook on the analysis of variance and functional measurement, suitable for advanced undergraduates or graduatestudents in a 10-12 week course, or for people wanting to jog their memory about these topics. Worth a look for a course adoption." --Society for Judgment and Decision Making Newsletter, March 2006
