'In this brilliant new edition Andy Field has introduced important new introductory material on statistics that the student will need and was missing at least in the first edition. This book is the best blend that I know of a textbook in statistics and a manual on SPSS. It is a balanced composite of both topics, using SPSS to illustrate important statistical material and, through graphics, to make visible important approaches to data analysis. There are many places in the book where I had to laugh, and that's saying a lot for a book on statistics. His excellent style engages the reader and makes reading about statistics fun' - David C Howell, Professor Emeritus, University of Vermont USA This award-winning text, now fully updated with SPSS Statistics, is the only book on statistics that you will need! Fully revised and restructured, this new edition is even more accessible as it now takes students through from introductory to advanced level concepts, all the while grounding knowledge through the use of SPSS Statistics. Andy Field's humorous and self-deprecating style and the book's host of characters make the journey entertaining as well as educational. While still providing a very comprehensive collection of statistical methods, tests and procedures, and packed with examples and self-assessment tests to reinforce knowledge, the new edition now also offers: - a more gentle introduction to basic-level concepts and methods for beginners - new textbook features to make the book more user-friendly for those learning about more advanced concepts, encouraging 'critical thinking' - a brand new, full-colour design, making it easy for students to navigate between topics, and to understand how to use the latest version of SPSS Statistics - both 'real world' (the bizarre and the wonderful) and invented examples illustrate the concepts and make the techniques come alive for students - an additional chapter on multilevel modelling for advanced-level students - reinforced binding to make the book easier to handle at a computer workstation. The book also includes access to a brand new and improved companion Website, bursting with features including: - animated 'SPSS walk-through' videos clearly demonstrating how to use the latest SPSS Statistics modules - self-marking multiple choice questions - data sets for psychology, business and management and health sciences - a flash-card glossary for testing knowledge of key concepts - access to support material from SAGE study skills books. Statistics lecturers are also provided with a whole range of resources and teaching aids, including: - the test bank - over 300 multiple-choice questions ready to upload to WebCT, Blackboard or other virtual learning environments - charts and diagrams in electronic format for inclusion in lecture slides - PowerPoint slides written by the author to accompany chapters of the text.

Der große Sachbuch-Bestseller aus Großbritannien: Endlich wird entlarvt, wie uns Pseudo-Wissenschaftler belügen, um uns Medizin- und Kosmetikprodukte zu verkaufen »Von Zahnärzten empfohlen«.»Von Dermatologen getestet«. Doch mit welchem Ergebnis? Woher wissen wir, ob uns eine medizinische Behandlung hilft? Wie können wir überprüfen, was uns alternative Heilmethoden wie zum Beispiel die Homöopathie versprechen? Und warum glauben kluge, kritische Menschen hanebüchene Dinge, nur weil »die Wissenschaft« sie angeblich bewiesen hat? Ben Goldacre entlarvt mit so viel Witz wie Wissen die zweifelhafte Wissenschaft hinter vermeintlich geprüften und bewiesenen Fakten und zeigt uns, wie wir mit eigenen Mitteln schlechte von guter Wissenschaft unterscheiden können.

'Takes the challenging and makes it understandable. The book contains useful advice on the application of statistics to a variety of contexts and shows how statistics can be used by managers in their work.' - Dr Terri Byers, Assistant Professor, University Of New Brunswick, Canada A book about introductory quantitative analysis, the authors show both how and why quantitative analysis is useful in the context of business and management studies, encouraging readers to not only memorise the content but to apply learning to typical problems. Fully up-to-date with comprehensive coverage of IBM SPSS and Microsoft Excel software, the tailored examples illustrate how the programmes can be used, and include step-by-step figures and tables throughout. A range of ‘real world’ and fictional examples, including "The Ballad of Eddie the Easily Distracted" and "Esha's Story" help bring the study of statistics alive. A number of in-text boxouts can be found throughout the book aimed at readers at varying levels of study and understanding Back to Basics for those struggling to understand, explain concepts in the most basic way possible - often relating to interesting or humorous examples Above and Beyond for those racing ahead and who want to be introduced to more interesting or advanced concepts that are a little bit outside of what they may need to know Think it over get students to stop, engage and reflect upon the different connections between topics A range of online resources including a set of data files and templates for the reader following in-text examples, downloadable worksheets and instructor materials, answers to in-text exercises and video content compliment the book. An ideal resource for undergraduates taking introductory statistics for business, or for anyone daunted by the prospect of tackling quantitative analysis for the first time.

Modellanwendung In Probleml Seaufgaben Wie Wirkt Kontext

Kontext im Sinne einer Aufgabenstellung mit authentischem Problemgrund initiiert einen Prozess, in dessen Verlauf fachspezifische Modelle angewendet werden müssen. Während ein positiver Effekt von Kontext auf affektive Variablen (z.B. Interesse und Motivation) als gesichert gilt, können bezüglich der Lernwirksamkeit widersprüchliche Auswirkungen beobachtet werden. Der Zusammenhang zwischen Kontextmerkmalen und dem Problemlöseprozess bleibt somit fraglich. Zum Teil liegt das an einer noch unzureichenden Beschreibung, welche Merkmale Kontexte definieren. In dieser Arbeit wird daher ein Kontextmodell entwickelt, auf dessen Basis untersucht wird, welchen Effekt die Aufgabenmerkmale Komplexität, Kontextualisiertheit und Transparenz auf die Anwendung fachspezifischer Modelle im Problemlöseprozess haben. In der mit 211 Lernenden der Klassenstufe 10 durchgeführten Studie konnten bezüglich der genannten Merkmale vielversprechende Effekte beobachtet werden. Besonders hervorzuheben ist darüber hinaus, dass Lernende weitgehend unabhängig von den untersuchten Aufgabenmerkmalen und von Unterschieden im Vorwissen oder den kognitiven Fähigkeiten erhebliche Vorteile aus der Nutzung fachspezifischer Modelle zu ziehen scheinen.

Florian Dorner legt eine umfassende Analyse der aktuellen Kommunikationsform ‚Advertorials‘, die redaktionell bearbeitete Texte und Werbung kombiniert, und der klassischen Printwerbung vor. Mittels einer Längsschnittstudie im experimentellen Design untersucht der Autor die Wirkungsweise von diesen Formaten über den Zeitverlauf und mit unterschiedlichen Stimuli-Abfolgen. Seine Ergebnisse zeigen deutlich, dass es Unterschiede in der Wahrnehmung und Wirkung der beiden Kommunikationsformate gibt. Dies ist insbesondere von Bedeutung, da Unternehmen im Rahmen ihrer Marketingkommunikationsüberlegungen zunehmend mit einem veränderten und stark kompetitiven Kommunikationsumfeld konfrontiert sind. Dabei gewinnen Advertorials für viele Unternehmen neben klassischer Printwerbung immer mehr an Bedeutung, werden in der wissenschaftlichen Literatur jedoch kontrovers diskutiert.
