The Oxford handbook of quantitative methods: statistical analysis (Vol. 2)

Contributor(s): Little, Todd D [Editor].
Series: Oxford Library of Psychology. Publisher: New York Oxford University Press 2014Description: xviii, 765 p.ISBN: 9780199370160.Subject(s): Psychology - Statistical Methods | Psychology - Mathematical Models | Historical Origins and Recent Developments - Quantitative MethodsDDC classification: 150.721 Summary: Research today demands the application of sophisticated and powerful research tools. Fulfilling this need, The Oxford Handbook of Quantitative Methods in Psychology is the complete tool box to deliver the most valid and generalizable answers to today's complex research questions. It is a one-stop source for learning and reviewing current best-practices in quantitative methods as practiced in the social, behavioral, and educational sciences. Comprising two volumes, this handbook covers a wealth of topics related to quantitative research methods. It begins with essential philosophical and ethical issues related to science and quantitative research. It then addresses core measurement topics before delving into the design of studies. Principal issues related to modern estimation and mathematical modeling are also detailed. Topics in the handbook then segway into the realm of statistical inference and modeling with chapters dedicated to classical approaches as well as modern latent variable approaches. Numerous chapters associated with longitudinal data and more specialized techniques round out this broad selection of topics. Comprehensive, authoritative, and user-friendly, this two-volume set will be an indispensable resource for serious researchers across the social, behavioral, and educational sciences. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/the-oxford-handbook-of-quantitative-methods-in-psychology-volume-2-9780199370160?q=The%20Oxford%20handbook%20of%20quantitative%20methods&lang=en&cc=in#
