Quantitative Data Analysis in Education: A Critical Introduction Using SPSS
Book Review: "Thank you! In his book Quantitative Data Analysis A critical introduction using SPSS, Professor Paul Connolly has produced a masterpiece for researchers who 'Don't do numbers', and have found themselves having amassed a desk full of quantitative data now needing analysis ...
