Fundamentals of Statistical Reasoning in Education 4th Edition, like the first three editions, is written largely with students of education in mind. Accordingly, Theodore Coladarci and Casey D. Cobb have drawn primarily on examples and issues found in school settings, such as those having to do with instruction, learning, motivation, and assessment. The emphasis on educational applications notwithstanding, the authors are confident that readers will find Fundamentals of Statistical Reasoning in Education 4th Edition of general relevance to other disciplines in the behavioral sciences as well.
The 4th Edition of Fundamentals is still designed as a “one semester” book. The authors intentionally sidestep topics that few introductory courses cover (e.g., factorial analysis of variance, repeated measures analysis of variance, multiple regression). At the same time, effect size and confidence intervals are incorporated throughout, which today are regarded as essential to good statistical practice.
