Author Information


This website provides a free self-study course in Statistics for students in Psychology or other social science courses. It concentrates on the Statistical techniques most common to the experimental methods in the discipline of Psychology, although other disciplines that use experimental techniques may also find this course helpful.


A unique feature of this Self-study course is the ability to calculate all problems 'by hand' (with the aid of a hand-calculator), and with the use of the popular Statistics software, SPSS. This allows you to understand the Theory behind statistics, so that you can use the SPSS software with confidence.
