About the Book

This book presents the basic statistical concepts required for researchers and students ineducation, descriptive statistics, and advanced inferential statistics in a simple manner.Itmay be helpful to the learners in master’s level as well as doctoral level. It offers anintegral approach to the study of statistics placing due emphasis on theory and applicationof computational procedures in Statistics related to Educational research.

The book may be much helpful to thelearners from non-mathematical background.Thebook is characterized by lucid explanation, step by step demonstration of the useof statistical tools and chapters carrying practice problems. Research scholars and students of education and statistics may found the book useful.
