PSYC 2200: Elementary Statistics for the Behavioral and Social Sciences

Michelle Oja

This text was created to provide students with a solid foundation in statistics as used in psychological, sociological, and behavioral research. Students will develop a useable understanding of research design, the organization of data, measures of central tendency and variability, central tendency theory, descriptive and inferential statistics, parametric and nonparametric tests, and basic test assumptions.

The focus includes the application of technology for statistical analysis, including the interpretation of the relevance of the statistical findings. Applications use data from disciplines including business, social sciences, psychology, life science, health science, and education.
