Summary

This text shows students and consumers of research how to read, understand, and critically evaluate the statistical information and research results contained in technical research reports. The text also provides applied researchers with advice on how to analyze their own data and summarize their empirical findings. Students in education and other disciplines need to learn how to interpret and use statistics and research, but often they do not have a way to begin this process. This text clearly and methodically presents basic statistical and research concepts and illustrates how to employ them in making sound educational decisions. Excerpts from more than 500 recent research articles are presented, analyzed and discussed to illustrate concepts while numerous cases, terms and review questions help guide the discussion. New to this Edition NEW! Over 95% of the Excerpts are new, with the vast majority from 2000-2002 research articles. New Excerpts are discussed throughout the chapters. Thoroughly revised and streamlined to be briefer and more accessible to readers who often have difficulty with challenging topics. Research Edition of this book now incorporates key term icons for further journal research, chapter-by-chapter database activities, an annotated Bibliography, and Themes of the TIMES article connections. Visit the companion website for this text at www.ablongman.com/huck where you will find chapter outlines, interactive review quizzes, links to interactive websites, a link to the reseach navigator database of journals and more.
