IAP BOOK SERIES
Quantitative Methods in Education and the Behavioral Sciences: Issues, Research, and Teaching
Sponsored by the American Educational Research Association's Special Interest Group: Educational Statisticians
Quantitative Methods in Education and the Behavioral Sciences: Issues, Research, and Teaching is a unique book series sponsored by the American Educational Research Association's Special Interest Group - Educational Statisticians. Motivated by the group's central purpose ? to increase interaction among educational researchers interested in the theory, applications, and teaching of statistics in the social sciences ? the new series is devoted to didactically oriented presentations that introduce, extend, and clarify state-of-the-art quantitative methods for students and researchers in the social and behavioral sciences. As such, the current series aims to present selected topics in a technically sophisticated, yet didactically oriented format. This allows for the individual volumes to be used to enhance the teaching of quantitative methods in course sequences typically taught in graduate behavioral science programs. Although other series and journals exist that routinely publish new quantitative methodologies, this book series is dedicated to both the teaching and applied research perspectives of specific modern quantitative research methods through each volume's relevant and accessible topical treatments. In line with this educational commitment, royalties from the sale of series' volumes will be used in large part to support student participation in annual special interest group conference activities.
