This field-leading introduction to statistics text for students in the behavioral and social sciences continues to offer straightforward instruction, accuracy, built-in learning aids, and real-world examples. The goals of STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES, 10th Edition are to teach the methods of statistics and convey the basic principles of objectivity and logic that are essential for science -- and valuable in everyday life. Authors Frederick Gravetter and Larry Wallnau help students understand statistical procedures through a conceptual context that explains why the procedures were developed and when they should be used. Students have numerous opportunities to practice statistical techniques through learning checks, examples, step-by-step demonstrations, and problems.

    • The book's conceptual context helps make learning statistics as simple as possible for students who may be intimidated by the subject. Statistical formulas are presented in both standard mathematical notation and in everyday language, with explanations of how and why formulas are used.
    • This edition's excellent problems, which walk students step-by-step through procedures in a variety of ways, reflect the straightforward writing for which Gravetter and Wallnau are renowned. Each chapter ends with 20 to 30 problems.
    • In-text learning aids give students many opportunities to master the material by practicing working through problems. A Focus on Problem Solving section in each chapter offers practical tips on deciding which formulas to use and cautions for avoiding common errors.
    • In the Literature sections, which appear in nearly every chapter, demonstrate how statistical results (e.g., for the mean and the standard deviation, t tests, and independent-measures tests) are reported in APA style and explain the notation and jargon used.
    • An appendix contains a general introduction to IBM SPSS®. In addition, at the end of each chapter for which an SPSS analysis is feasible, a step-by-step set of instructions describes how to enter data and run the analysis, and presents an example of the output.
    • The authors continue to refine and improve each edition, and this revision is no exception. Throughout the book, research examples have been updated, real world examples have been added, and the end-of-chapter problems have been extensively revised.
    • Each section of every chapter begins with a list of Learning Objectives and ends with a Learning Check consisting of multiple-choice questions -- with at least one question related to each Learning Objective. Do-It-Yourself examples present students with an opportunity to test their understanding by solving a computation problem related to the current topic (a final answer is provided).
    • The previous edition's Chapter 19, outlining how to identify the correct statistical procedures for specific data sets, has been moved to the Appendix as a Statistics Organizer.
    • Available with MindTap. MindTap for Statistics helps students understand statistics through chapter-specific assignments of varying complexity that ensure students are learning key concepts and practicing their application on a regular basis. Students elevate thinking by working with realistic data sets, interacting with tools to help them understand statistical constructs, and getting immediate and substantive feedback. Math and Graphing Tutorials help students overcome mathematical challenges and fears that would otherwise prevent them from learning statistics, SPSS Tutorials and problems give students exposure to real world statistical software, and video problem demos provide students help when they need it most.
