Success through Statistics: Applying Metacognitive Skills to Social Science Research encourages students to recognize and cultivate self-efficacy, self-monitoring, resilience, and other metacognitive and executive function skills to overcome internal and external obstacles relate...d to the study of statistics. The text covers the concepts introduced in a foundational statistics course while simultaneously sharpening students' metacognitive skills to inspire new belief in themselves and nurture academic success. The opening chapters develop the metacognitive framework for the statistical concepts presented throughout. Later chapters familiarize readers with statistical research methods and designs and types of measurement and data. Students form a strong understanding of basic statistical concepts and learn how to develop and test a hypothesis. Dedicated chapters discuss normal distributions and measures of variability, simple statistics with two variables, correlations and the chi-square test of independence, analysis of variance, and multiple correlation and linear regression. The text concludes with a chapter about nonparametric tests. Applied learning exercises throughout reinforce the material and immerse students in the metacognitive framework. Innovative and approachable, Success through Statistics is an ideal text for foundational courses in the discipline.
