The authors then walk through the steps to compute the test in SPSS and the output, clearly linking how the SPSS procedure and output connect back to the conceptual underpinnings of the test. By drawing clear connections between the theoretical and computational aspects of statistics, this engaging text aids studentsa understanding of theoretical concepts by teaching them in a practical context.The same data set used earlier (aNonPar.sava) contains the school class size data. The variable class_size contains the class sizes, and the two dummy variables, class_gp1 and class_gp2, contain a1as and a2as corresponding to the twoanbsp;...
