Abstract:

'SALT' provides a step-by-step approach to the most useful statistical
analyses for language test developers and researchers based on the programs
IBM SPSS, Winsteps and Facets. Each chapter focuses on one particular type of
analysis, for example, analysing how items in a test are performing or
investigating the relationship between two variables. Each chapter begins with
an introduction as to why this particular analysis is important for the
language tester and then provides explanations about the terms and concepts
which the reader will meet in the chapter.

The method for carrying out each analysis is then described in a systematic
manner guiding the reader through the procedure for that particular analysis.
The main aspects of the output files are then investigated and the results
explained. Eleven of the book's appendices provide further opportunities for
the reader to repeat many of the statistical procedures on different data
sets. Questions guide the reader in checking their understanding of the
statistical procedures and output tables.
