This was a required textbook for class but it's honestly one of the worst textbooks I've ever used. Truthfully, I am a smart student I work full time and attend full time school and maintain a 4. I re-read each chapter multiple times but the concepts were not fully explained and the chapters seemed to have no order or flow.
I found that in order to do my assignments I would basically just have to google the concepts my professor wanted us to write about in order to get a more clear understanding. Verbatim, here is what the text says in full about this: In the technical language of mathematics, a parameter describes a population, and a statistic specifically describes a sample.
Some statistics are useful for describing the results of measuring single variables or for constructing and evaluating multi-item scales. These statistics include frequency distributions, graphs, measures of central tendency and variation, and reliability tests. Other statistics are used primarily to describe the association among variables and to control for other variables, and thus, to enhance the causal validity of our conclusions. Cross-tabulation, for example, is one simple technique for measuring association and controlling other variables; it is introduced in this chapter.
All of these statistics are termed descriptive statistics because they describe the distribution of and relationship among variables.
For example, in Chapter Unobtrusive Measures, the authors start explaining what unobtrusive measures are and giving examples such as physical traces, archive data, observation and contrived observation. So far so good. Next, they provide a section called Content Analysis which goes through the steps of designing a study such as identify a population, determine units of analysis, select a sample, design coding procedures and develop appropriate statistical analyses.
Again, so far so good. Next however, it jumps to a section called Historical Methods and starts over with different methods for conducting a study such as narrative explanation, event-structured analysis or oral history study. Where and how does this information fit in?
