The R Student Companion Book Excerpt:

R is the amazing, free, open-access software package for scientific graphs and calculations used by scientists worldwide. The R Student Companion is a student-oriented manual describing how to use R in high school and college science and mathematics courses. Written for beginners in scientific computation, the book assumes the reader has just some high school algebra and has no computer programming background. The author presents applications drawn from all sciences and social sciences and includes the most often used features of R in an appendix. In addition, each chapter provides a set of computational challenges: exercises in R calculations that are designed to be performed alone or in groups. Several of the chapters explore algebra concepts that are highly useful in scientific applications, such as quadratic equations, systems of linear equations, trigonometric functions, and exponential functions. Each chapter provides an instructional review of the algebra concept, followed by a hands-on guide to performing calculations and graphing in R. R is intuitive, even fun. Fantastic, publication-quality graphs of data, equations, or both can be produced with little effort. By integrating mathematical computation and scientific illustration early in a student’s development, R use can enhance one's understanding of even the most difficult scientific concepts. While R has gained a strong reputation as a package for statistical analysis, The R Student Companion approaches R more completely as a comprehensive tool for scientific computing and graphing.

Quantitative Psychological Research The Complete Student s Companion 3rd Edition Book Excerpt:

This book expertly guides the reader through all stages involved in undertaking quantitative psychological research, from accessing the relevant literature, through designing and conducting a study, analysing and interpreting data, and finally reporting the research. This third edition includes two new chapters - on preliminary checking of data and allowing for additional variables when comparing the means of different conditions - and expands on original topics such as choosing sample sizes and how to test for mediation effects. It also contains increased coverage of tests and further detail of techniques and terms which psychologists will meet when working with those in the medical professions. As the chapters focus on choosing appropriate statistical tests and how to interpret and report them (rather than the detailed calculations, which appear in appendices), the reader is able to gain an understanding of a test without being interrupted by the need to understand the complex mathematics behind it. In addition, for the first time, the book is accompanied by an online bank of multiple choice questions. The book helps readers to: Locate reports of relevant existing research Design research while adhering to ethical principles Identify various methods which can be used to ask questions or observe behaviour Choose appropriate samples Display and analyse findings numerically and graphically to test hypotheses Report psychological research in a variety of ways. As such, the book is suitable for psychology students and professionals at all levels, and is particularly useful to those working in Health and Clinical Psychology.

Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ...apparel and sought and obtained employment as a teamster in the quartermasters department. Her features were very large, and so coarse and masculine was her general appearance that she would readily have passed as a man, and in her case the deception was no doubt easily practiced. Next day the "she dragoon " was caught, and proved to be a rather prepossessing young woman, and though necessarily bronzed and hardened by exposure, I doubt if, even with these marks of campaigning, she could have deceived as readily as did her companion. How the two got acquainted I never learned, and though they had joined the army independently of each other, yet an intimacy had sprung up between them long before the mishaps of the foraging expedition. They both were forwarded to army headquarters, and, when provided with clothing suited to their sex, sent back to Nashville, and thence beyond our lines to Louisville. On January 9, by an order from the War Department, the Army of the Cumberland had been divided into three corps, designated the Fourteenth, Twentieth, and Twenty-first. This order did not alter the composition of the former grand divisions, nor change the commanders, but the new nomenclature was a decided improvement over the clumsy designations Right Wing, Centre, and Left Wing, which were well calculated to lead to confusion sometimes. McCooks wing became the Twentieth Corps, and my division continued of the same organization, and held the same number as formerly--the Third Division, Twentieth Corps. My first brigade was now commanded by Brigadier-General William H. Lytle, the second by Colonel Bernard Laiboldt, and the third by Colonel Luther P. Bradley. On the 4th of March I was directed to move in light marching order toward Franklin and...

Assessment for Effective Teaching Book Excerpt:

Written in a straightforward and conversational manner, this book integrates assessment and instruction to provide educators with an understanding of when and why to use different assessment techniques to optimize student learning. Emphasis is on realistic applications, taken from the author's experiences using mainstream assessment principles. The subject matter in each chapter is frequently expanded with examples from a broad range of educational settings, ranging from classroom teaching to school administration, school counseling, special education, and related special services for students with special needs. Features Discussion of individual differences among students helps readers understand the reality of individual differences so as to employ assessment to influence learning for all students. Separate chapters on product assessment with rubrics and performance assessment methods present balanced and contemporary treatment of authentic assessment in Chapters 8 and 9. Simple, easily managed data sets and computation exercises for developing concepts throughout the text eliminate intricate calculations that often get in the way of important principles. An entire chapter (13) on assessment issues in special education helps readers address the thicket of special education issues and mandates in which assessment plays a vital role. Learning aids such as Discussion Questions, Thinking Cap Exercises, and computational problems are embedded throughout the book to provide assistance in identifying key issues, checking comprehension and review. Instructor's Manual/Test Bank developed by the authors is available to adopters. Companion website for students and instructors is available at: www.ablongman.com/hannadettmer.
