The methodology described in Statistics in Steps makes statistics comprehensible for students and lecturers. This textbook gives a clear and concise explanation of how certain statistical techniques work and what they are used for, illustrated by real-life examples.
The book focuses on how statistical techniques are used, not on the formulas behind them (although they are treated in the book as well). Thus enabling students to use statistics as a useful tool to process quantitative data. To support the learning process, several aids are used, like learning objectives, checkpoints and assignments.
The answers to the assignments and the checkpoints are available on the accompanying website www.statisticsinsteps.nl. Statistics in Steps is intended for higher education students, but it is also the perfect reference book for professionals that process quantitative research data.
