# Data
Analysis **•** Calm

In
addition to my research on the role of attitudes and motivation in second
language acquisition, I have taught the graduate course in research design and
statistics in the Department of Psychology since 1961 (see Curriculum Vitae for details). In 1990, I
developed an undergraduate course on computer applications in psychological
research and began writing chapters that could be used as the textbook. In
2001, my book titled “*Psychological Statistics Using SPSS for Windows*”
was published by Prentice Hall, *Estadística para Psicología Usando SPSS para Windows*”
in 2003. The book was intended for undergraduate students and researchers who
wanted an easy to read source for a number of statistical procedures used in
research. In 2007, a colleague of mine and I revised it slightly, upgrading the
SPSS applications to SPSS14 and adding two chapters. The reference for the coil
ring book, which is now produced and sold by The Book store at the

Gardner, R.C. & Tremblay, P.F. (2007). *Essentials
of Data analysis: Statistics and Computer Applications*

I
refer to this web page as DataAnalysisDot Calm because it contains a collection
of unpublished manuscripts I wrote in the last few years to explain issues
associated with data analysis as well as to provide examples of how to perform
specific analyses. It also contains 19 power point lectures (in PDF form) that
we used in the 2007/08 course in Research Design. The intent behind these
materials is comparable to that underlying the preparation of the undergraduate
book, viz., to provide an easy to read source on issues of interest to
researchers. For consulting and lecture services, contact gardner@uwo.ca.
