* Students get valuable practice in interpreting statistical
reporting as it actually appears in journals. In each of the 62
exercises, your students will read a brief excerpt of statistical
reporting from a published research article. * Each exercise begins
with guidelines for interpreting the statistics in the excerpt. *
The questions on the excerpts promote learning by requiring
students to * interpret information in tables and figures, *
perform simple calculations to further their interpretations, *
critique data-reporting techniques, and * evaluate procedures used
to collect data. * Each exercise covers a limited number of
statistics, making it easy for you to coordinate the exercises with
lectures and a main textbook. * The questions in each exercise are
divided into two parts: (1) Factual Questions and (2) Questions for
Discussion. The factual questions require careful reading for
details, while the discussion questions show students that
interpreting statistics is more than a mathematical exercise. These
questions require them to apply good judgment as well as
statistical reasoning in arriving at appropriate interpretations. *
Thirteen new exercises interspersed throughout show how to
interpret a greater array of statistical reporting.
