Beth Morling on the 2nd edition of ITNS

Yes, we’re excited about the upcoming 2nd edition of Introduction to the New Statistics. Though we’re not braggarts by nature, hard not to crow from this feedback from Beth Morling, author of the fantastic textbook Research Methods in Psychology, APS fellow, and the 2023 winner of the Charles L. Brewer Distinguished Teaching of Psychology Award (congrats, Beth!). Here’s Beth’s feedback:

Cumming and Calin-Jageman are psychology’s New Statistics evangelists, and with this text they demonstrate how to train our field’s newest scholars.  This book explains the statistical estimation process with patience and clarity.  Just as importantly, each section keeps students in mind. The authors anticipate learners’ misconceptions, build quantitative reasoning with “eyeballing” tips, and offer more practice just when students need it. It’s a great text for students and for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding.
