# Lab Manual for Statistical Analysis

Book Preface

This lab manual is meant to accompany a text covering the basic statistics used in the behavioral sciences. It will focus on practicing the statistical skills and concepts you are covering in the course rather than providing the instruction on skills and concepts. In addition, the basics of research design are covered in some activities either on their own or where applicable to accompany statistical analysis.

There are five main sections. The first section contains activities that correspond to topics typically covered in statistics courses. The second section includes activities that examine the underlying statistical formulae with an emphasis on the conceptual similarities and differences among related statistical tests. The third section contains activities related to data analysis projects (including data sets) that students can analyze for analysis projects. The fourth section includes activities designed to help students choose the correct test for different types of data. The fifth section contains exercises designed to help students write up and interpret results from analyses in APA style.
