Lecture Notes

This is your gateway to the lecture notes and spreadsheets used in this class.

The spreadsheets are

  1. AnalyzeThis Spreadsheet
  2. Formulas Spreadsheet
  3. Means Spreadsheet
  4. MechanicsRUs Spreadsheet

The AnalyzeThis Spreadsheet lets you enter raw data and perform statistical analysis on the data, including hypothesis tests, confidence intervals, one-way and two-way ANOVA, simple and multiple regression, Cronbach's alpha, tests for inter-rater reliability, and simple tests for validity.

Formulas Spreadsheet performs many of the same tests, but assumes that you have summary data rather than raw data.

Means Spreadsheet calculates means, standard deviations, simple regression, and does various calculations regarding percentiles.

Finally, MechanicsRUs Spreadsheet analyzes an example related to Simpson's Paradox.

The lecture notes are all stored in Adobe PDF format. The first column is a PDF file with one screen per page, suitable for viewing on your computer. The second column is a PDF file with four screens per page, suitable for printing. It is recommended that you print the notes before class and take notes directly on your printed copy. You can download the complete set (291 pages), or you can download the notes one chapter at a time.
