"Go on, Mr. Pratt," says Mrs. Sampson. "Them ideas is so original and soothing. I think statistics are just as lovely as they can be."

O. Henry,The Handbook of Hymen

The purpose of statistics in psychological research is typically misunderstood. Researchers sometimes judge an experiment by theThe goal of science as science is not prediction and control but understanding. Prediction is merely the test of understanding and control the practical reward.(Macleod, 1947, p. 209)

The book by Maxwell and Delaney (MD) is a survey of ANOVA designs; the book by Neter, Wasserman and Kutner (NKNW) is a survey of regression, ANOVA, and the connection between the two. Both are excellent reference books. However, I'm am willing to let students use other books as well (such as Keppel, Kirk, Hays, etc.). Feel free to consult with me. For purposes of standardization, I will key my lecture notes to relevant chapters in the MD and NKNW books, and use their notation. I have also ordered a few other books, all of which are optional. The optional books I ordered include: the SPSS manual, the APA publication guide for learning how to write results sections, and some additional books dealing with advanced topics. As the term progresses, some or all of these books may become appealing to you. My lecture notes will be available as a course pack at the beginning of the term. These lecture notes consist of about 500 single-spaced pages of conceptual motivation, examples, intuitions, graphs, and annotated output. Texts for Psych 614 will be reviewed next semester.Designing Experiments and Analyzing Databy Maxwell and Delaney

Applied Linear Statistical Modelsby Neter, Kutner, Nachtsheim, & Wasserman
