Homework Help: Psychology

Posted by J.J on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 4:11pm.

An essential part of scientific thinking is not only how to use statistics correctly, but also how to identify the misuse of statistics. Our textbook authors suggest that students should:
Answer

distrust all statistics because they convey a false impression of certainty and are typically wildly inaccurate.

integrate statistics with "real-life" issues, such as day care, in order to interpret them.

trust only those statistics that are presented in reputable newspapers and journals.

ask how the statistic was calculated and what data the statistic is based upon.
