Kathleen Thomas Allan, Ph.D., knows that most college seniors and graduates do not feel comfortable with their classes on statistics. Allan wants to provide an alternative through her published book “Research & The Analysis Of Research Hypotheses: Volume 2” (published by Xlibris), which is designed to simplify the statistical analysis.

“When I worked on my Ph.D., I had to take a set of statistics courses. I am mathematically inclined but I realized that most ordinary college students would have a difficult time with statistics,” Allan tells.

Allan provides a method for collecting and analyzing research data intent, which simplifies the statistical process. In its second volume, “Research & The Analysis Of Research Hypotheses” shows five basic methods for analyzing the data collected during the research process. “I would like readers to be comfortable analyzing the data they collect in their research project,” the author adds.

An excerpt from the book:
“Research & The Analysis Of Research Hypotheses” has been designed employing M. David Merrill’s theories concerning Rule, Example and Practice. The “rule” is described and defined in the portion of each unit of instruction labeled “PURPOSE:” The “example” and matching “practice” are described in the portion labeled “OBJECTIVES:” The body of the unit describes the rule in more detail giving examples as needed. Finally, there is an “assignment” which requires the student to put the rule into practice. The two volumes provide a basis for doing a research study which graduate students can use as a model for their thesis or dissertation.
