This book focuses on extraction of pertinent information from statistical test outputs, in order to write result sections and/or accompanying tables and/or figures.
The book is divided into two encompassing sections: Part I – Basic Statistical Tests and Part II – Advanced Statistical Tests. Part I includes 9 basic statistical tests, and Part II includes 7 advanced statistical tests. Each chapter provides the name of a basic or advanced statistical test, a brief description, examples of when to use each, a sample scenario, and a sample results section write-up. Depending on the test and need, most chapters provide a table and/or figure to accompany the write-up.
The purpose of the book is to provide researchers with a reference manual for writing results sections and tables/figures in scholarly works. The authors fill a gap in research support manuals by focusing on sample write-ups and tables/figures for given statistical tests. The book assists researchers by eliminating the need to comb through numerous publications to determine necessary information to report, as well as correct APA format to use, at the close of analyses.
