Sample text

Can you meet each one? If so, put a check mark beside that objective. Problems and Answers The problems in this text are in small groups within the chapter rather than clumped together at the end. This encourages you to read a little and work problems, followed by more reading and problems. Psychologists call this pattern spaced practice. Spaced practice patterns lead to better performance than massed practice patterns. Because working problems and writing answers are necessary to learn statistics, I have used interesting problems and have sometimes written interesting answers for the problems; in some cases, I even put new information in the answers.

The serial position effect applies to any sequence of material that is learned in order. Knowing about the serial position effect, you should devote extra study time to items in the middle of a list. More on Graphics Almost 100 graphs and figures appear in the chapters, problems, and answers that follow. Some graphs are frequency distributions; others are line graphs. In addition, you will find boxplots and scatterplots (with explanations). Group means and the variability of the scores about those means are pictured with bar graphs.

Think these through and write your answers. Being able to calculate a statistic is almost worthless if you cannot explain in English what it means. Writing reveals how thoroughly you understand. To emphasize the importance of explanation, I’ve highlighted the Interpretation portion of each answer in Appendix G. On several occasions, problems or data sets are used more than once, either later in the chapter or even in another chapter. If you do not work the problem when it is first presented, you are likely to be frustrated when it appears again.
