Analysis of Variance and Functional Measurement

A Practical Guide

includes CD-ROM

David J. Weiss

  • Written to help students learn to describe and analyze data--transmitting an understanding of how an analysis works, rather than mathematical formalism, is the paramount goal of the book.
  • Esoteric derivations are marked off within boxes and may be skipped at the instructor's discretion, without disrupting the flow of the text. There are lots of exercises, all with answers.
  • Factorial computations are taught using an easily understood template approach instead of a series of formulas with subscripts.
  • The chapter on Functional Measurement is unique in statistics texts. Functional measurement (also called Information Integration Theory) has been overlooked because there has not been an elementary presentation of the methodology until the present book's last chapter; there has also not been software designed to simplify the analyses. Instructors who do not wish to include this material in their courses may omit the chapter without loss of continuity.
  • The specialized CALSTAT computer programs included with the text are much easier to learn and to routinely use than the analysis of variance components of the major packages such as SPSS or SAS.
