Selecting Statistical Procedures

This unit will walk you through the process of selecting an appropriate statistical procedure. It essentially automates and expands the flowchart introduced in Appendix D, but also connects you to the resources on this website illustrating how to compute the statistics selected. If you prefer to use the basic flowchart from Appendix D, there is a pdf version that you can print out.

Identifying the Characteristics of the Study:

  1. What is the level of constraint?
  2. What are the dependent variables and what type of data does each produce?

  3. What are the independent variables (including their number, type, and number of levels of each)?

  4. What are your research hypotheses?
