This text presents statistical methods used in psychology, based on the seven stages of empirical research, from problem formulation through selecting a statistical model, designing an experiment, and interpreting data. The text seeks to present statistics in a simple manner, avoiding the use of formulas when possible. All examples refer to psychology as an empirical science. Exercises and examples use two software packages: R and version 19 of SPSS. Throughout the book, material is labeled according to the undergraduate level (dealing only with the ability to use statistics for specific applications); the Master's level (explanations of underlying methods, without using detailed mathematical derivation); and the doctoral level (discussion of shortcomings and common problems with the method). Material labeled for lecturers offers didactically useful observations. After a review of measurement in psychology, psychology as an empirical science, and definitions of major statistical concepts, the text covers descriptive and inferential statistics, and model and theory generation procedures. About 50 pages of reference appendices are included. A companion website provides data for examples in the book. Rasch is affiliated with the University of Life Sciences, Austria.
