A Handbook of Statistics and Quantitative Analysis for Educational Leadership

John W. Mulcahy and Jess L. Gregory

A Handbook of Statistics and Quantitative Analysis for Educational Leadership is an approachable reference for all levels of educational leadership. The topics are presented with a clarity that makes the mathematics accessible, even if the reader has not had prior training in research methods or statistics. The handbook's refreshing treatment of the material includes concrete examples and questions for discussion that provide educational leaders the tools they need to make data-based decisions.

From understanding statistical vocabulary to the choosing of statistical procedures, the topics presented are organized in increasing complexity, providing a solid foundation upon which the next topic may be based. A Handbook of Statistics and Quantitative Analysis is an invaluable reference tool in the pursuit of a masters or doctoral degree.
