Real-world data provides an easily relatable frame of reference, while numerous examples reinforce key ideas and demonstrate critical concepts to help ease student comprehension. Designed for those seeking a highly practical introduction to statistical measurement, reasoning, and analysis, this book requires no specific mathematical background and leaves derivations behind in favor of logic, reasoning, and modern statistics software. Concepts are introduced first in a real-life setting to illustrate immediate relevancy, and are subsequently expanded to relate underlying mechanisms, limitations, and further applications.
An emphasis on the relationship between validity and assumptions underscores the importance of critical thinking and the use of appropriate models while instilling thoughtful habits that lead to accuracy in interpretation.

Students learn course concepts using the complete online eTextbook, flashcards, crossword puzzles, practice questions, videos, and animations. Organized by learning objective, students can filter for relevant learning resources based on what they need to study most and print any section of the eTextbook.
Every student has a different starting point, and adaptive practice provides endless opportunities for practice to effectively prepare for class or quizzes and exams. Active retrieval of information with practice questions is proven to improve retention of information better than re-reading or reviewing the material, and students who use adaptive practice to prepare for exams do significantly better than those who do not.
Students who fully engage in WileyPLUS assignments do better in the course by more than a letter grade. Auto-graded assignments give students immediate feedback based on flexible assignment settings determined by the instructor, while the notification center allows students to set their own email notification policies to stay on track. Instructors can select from extensive and reliable question banks to create and deploy reading, practice, homework, pre-post lectures, and assessment assignments.
Students know where they stand on WileyPLUS assignments, and they can track progress by learning objective.
Instructors have insights into student performance at the granular question attempt and can track trends by individual student, assignment, or learning objective. Flexible policies allow instructors to change points, set assignment weighing policies, extend individual due dates, or drop the lowest grade. Chapter 1.
