IBM SPSS for Introductory Statistics is designed to help students learn how to analyze and interpret research. In easy-to-understand language, the authors show readers how to choose the appropriate statistic based on the design, and to interpret outputs appropriately. There is such a wide variety of options and statistics in SPSS, that knowing which ones to use and how to interpret the outputs can be difficult. This book assists students with these challenges.

Comprehensive and user-friendly, the book prepares readers for each step in the research process: design, entering and checking data, testing assumptions, assessing reliability and validity, computing descriptive and inferential parametric and nonparametric statistics, and writing about results. Dialog windows and SPSS syntax, along with the output, are provided. Several realistic data sets, available online, are used to solve the chapter problems. This new edition includes updated screenshots and instructions for IBM SPSS 25, as well as updated pedagogy, such as callout boxes for each chapter indicating crucial elements of APA style and referencing outputs.

IBM SPSS for Introductory Statistics is an invaluable supplemental (or lab text) book for students. In addition, this book and its companion, IBM SPSS for Intermediate Statistics, are useful as guides/reminders to faculty and professionals regarding the specific steps to take to use SPSS and/or how to use and interpret parts of SPSS with which they are unfamiliar.

This book is a must-have guide for any person who desires to learn the basics of SPSS software." - Janelle L. Gagnon, Mount Holyoke College, USA

"I have been using the earlier versions of this book for many years. The students loved it. Using this book they found it stress-free to understand basic statistics. The book is easy to read even for non-native English speakers. The real research examples really help students to understand the most important statistical concepts. This revised edition includes updated screenshots and instructions for the most recent SPSS version. This is the best introductory SPSS book I have ever used or read." - Krisztian Jozsa, Professor of Education, University of Szeged, Hungary
