The original introductory statistics textbook written specifically for the discipline of education. Typically, education professors had to select from textbooks that were directed at "the behavioral sciences" or, at best, "psychology and education." While many of these texts are technically and conceptually adequate, the examples, problems, and applications are of little relevance to the reality of schools and, therefore, to the interests and concerns of education students. This text was designed to fill the void. Includes a CD.
