This textbook offers a refreshingly clear and digestible introduction to statistical analysis for psychology using the user-friendly jamovi software. The authors provide a concise, practical guide that takes students from the early stages of research design, with a jargon-free explanation of terminology, and walks them through key analyses such as the t-test, ANOVA, correlation, chi-square, and linear regression. The book features written interpretations to help learners identify relevant statistics along the way. With fascinating examples from psychological research, as well as screenshots and activities from jamovi, this text is sure to encourage even the most reluctant statistics student. The comprehensive companion website provides an extra helping hand, with practice datasets and a full suite of tutorial videos to help consolidate understanding.

This is essential reading for psychology students using jamovi for their courses in Research Methods and Statistics or Data Analysis.
