Sherri Jackson’s straightforward, conversational introduction to statistics presents just what its title promises -- a plain-and-simple overview of statistics that is clear, concise, and sparing in its use of jargon. Ideal for behavioral sciences majors who need to grasp basic concepts quickly, Jackson’s text is designed to quickly build students’ confidence in understanding, calculating, and interpreting statistics. It instills a strong awareness of the interaction between statistical methods and research methods. It also provides a solid working knowledge of basic statistical cautions in research design, a strong understanding of the concept of significance, and the critical thinking skills necessary to apply these ideas. This paperback book’s modular format (22 modules across 10 chapters) chunks the material into small segments that make even difficult concepts manageable. Jackson shows why each new statistical technique is necessary before explaining it, and skillfully uses narrative to connect one module to the next. The end of each module features a summary review table, Critical Thinking Check items (with answers) review of key terms, and Module Exercises to help students master key concepts. At the end of each chapter, a detailed self-test lets students check their understanding of the concepts. These pedagogical features are a perfect complement to Jackson’s narrative, as they serve to further build students’ confidence with statistical ideas.

Simple Statistics provides a concise, compelling, and reasonably priced introduction to basic statistics for students of criminology and criminal justice. Written in a conversational tone, this text does not "dumb down" the material. Rather, it demonstrates the value of statistical thinking and reasoning in context. For example, Chapter 2 illustrates the various ways that "garbage in, garbage out" affects the substantive conclusions drawn from statistical analyses. This book covers essential statistical techniques. It does not attempt to provide an encyclopedic sweep of all statistical procedures. Author Terance D. Miethe shows how verbal statements and other types of information are converted into statistical codes, measures, and variables. Many texts don't cover this process of operationalization and measurement - so most students don't have a clue as to how research methods and statistics are related or how to conduct statistical analysis from the bottom up. This textbook provides answers to both "how to do..." and "why we do..." statistical procedures. Most statistics texts emphasize the "how to do..." - to the neglect of the "why we do..." questions. The problems at the end of each chapter focus on applications to provide more context for "why we do..." these procedures. The term informed consumer is frequently used to convey the importance of understanding social statistics for becoming a better student, employee, and citizen. The book uses hand computation methods to demonstrate how to apply the various statistical procedures. Most chapters also contain an optional section on how to do these procedures in SPSS and/or Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. But such applications are not necessary for understanding the statistical methods described in this book. Several examples are used to illustrate each statistical procedure to help students understand and apply them. However, rather than overwhelming students with too many examples, the book offers a balance between computation methods and examples of how to do them. Specific problems, detailed summaries, key terms, and major formulas are provided at the end of each chapter to further highlight major points. A comprehensive Instructor's Manual, written by Miethe, is available.

The chief executive officer of a corporation is not much different from a public school administrator. While CEOs base many of their decisions on data, for school administrators, this type of research may conjure up miserable memories of searching for information to meet a graduate school requirement. However, the value of data-based decision making will continue to escalate and the school community—students, teachers, parents and the general public—expect this information to come from their administrators. Administrators are called on to be accountable, but few are capable of presenting the mountain of data that they collect in a cohesive and strategic manner. Most statistical books are focused on statistical theory versus application, but Statistics Made Simple for School Leaders presents statistics in a simple, practical, conceptual, and immediately applicable manner. It enables administrators to take their data and manage it into strategic information so the results can be used for action plans that benefit the school system. The approach is 'user friendly' and leaves the reader with a confident can-do attitude to communicate results and plans to staff and the community.
