This comprehensive and uniquely organized text is aimed at undergraduate and graduate level statistics courses in education, psychology, and other social sciences. A conceptual approach, built around common issues and problems rather than statistical techniques, allows students to understand the conceptual nature of statistical procedures and to focus more on cases and examples of analysis. Wherever possible, presentations contain explanations of the underlying reasons behind a technique. Importantly, this is one of the first statistics texts in the social sciences using R as the principal statistical package. Key features include the following.Conceptual Focus - The focus throughout is more on conceptual understanding and attainment of statistical literacy and thinking than on learning a set of tools and procedures.Problems and Cases - Chapters and sections open with examples of situations related to the forthcoming issues, and major sections ends with a case study. For example, after the section on describing relationships between variables, there is a worked case that demonstrates the analyses, presents computer output, and leads the student through an interpretation of that output. Continuity of Examples - A master data set containing nearly all of the data used in the book's examples is introduced at the beginning of the text. This ensures continuity in the examples used across the text. Companion Website - A companion website contains instructions on how to use R, SAS, and SPSS to solve the end-of-chapter exercises and offers additional exercises. Field Tested - The manuscript has been field tested for three years at two leading institutions.

Bloomsbury CPD Library: Raising Attainment in the Primary Classroom is a complete guide for primary teachers to assess, plan and excel in raising the attainment of every child. Children begin school with considerable differences in their literacy and maths skills.

Experts Sonia Blandford and Catherine Knowles set out to help you understand the theory underpinning aspiration, access and achievement, and what you can do to close the achievement gap in your school. Bloomsbury CPD Library: Raising Attainment in the Primary Classroom specifically focuses on increasing access and raising aspirations of pupils as a means to improving attainment. This easy-to-follow title in the Bloomsbury CPD Library uses self-evaluation tasks and a full set of helpful, ready-to-use training plans for hours of CPD sessions so you can offer your colleagues effective training in this crucial area to ensure every child in your school fulfils their potential. It is a full guide to raising attainment in the primary classroom that is split into two sections: teach yourself and train others.
