The Really Easy Statistics Site
Title: The Really Easy Statistics Site
Creator: Deacon, Jim
Publisher: University of Edinburgh / Biology Teaching Organisation
Abstract: I have produced this site, as someone who uses statistics in my experimental work, but I am not a statistician. The site is intended to provide a simple, straightforward guide to the basics of experimental design and to some of the common statistical tests. There are several excellent sites on Statistical methods. But I think that many undergraduates (and graduate students) want only a user-friendly beginner's guide - or a refresher course - that enables them to use statistical tests with a minimum of fuss. That's the aim of this site. It is by no means a comprehensive guide, but it will get you started and, if nothing more, it will help you to understand the meaning of the symbols you see in scientific papers. You can use this site in 2 ways: If you know the statistical test that you want, then go straight to the index of tests. If you are "rusty" or a beginner, then you should read the introductory pages: The Scientific Method, Experimental design, Common statistical terms, Descriptive statistics, and what test do I need?
