Short description Emphasizing the direct link between scientific research questions and data analysis, Modern Statistical and Computing Methods for the Behavioral and Educational Sciences Using R introduces current statistical methods, including the use of Monte Carlo simulation, bootstrapping, and randomization tests. Explicit instructions for using R are provided, and computer code and output are interwoven throughout to demonstrate how each analysis is carried out and how output is interpreted. The methods help students and researchers in the educational and behavioral sciences gain a better understanding of statistical concepts.
