Abstract:

This valuable book shows second language researchers how to use the
statistical program SPSS to conduct statistical tests frequently done in
SLA research. Using data sets from real SLA studies, A Guide to Doing
Statistics in Second Language Research Using SPSS shows newcomers to both
statistics and SPSS how to generate descriptive statistics, how to choose a
statistical test, and how to conduct and interpret a variety of basic
statistical tests. The author covers the statistical tests that are most
commonly used in second language research, including chi-square, t-tests,
correlation, multiple regression, ANOVA and non-parametric analogs to these
tests. The text is abundantly illustrated with graphs and tables depicting
actual data sets, and exercises throughout the book help readers understand
concepts (such as the difference between independent and dependent
variables) and work out statistical analyses. Answers to all exercises are
provided on the book's companion website, along with sample data sets and
other supplementary material.
