This practical guide explains the use of randomization tests and provides example designs and macros for implementation in IBM SPSS and Excel. It reviews the theory and practice of single-case and small-n designs so readers can draw valid causal inferences from small-scale clinical studies. The macros and example data are provided on the book's website so that users can run analyses of the text data as well as data from their own studies.
The new edition features:
The book opens with an overview of single case and small n designs -- why they are needed and how they differ from descriptive case studies. Chapter 2 focuses on the basic concepts of randoization tests. Next how to choose and implement a randomization design is reviewed including material on how to perform the randomizations, how to select the number of observations, and how to record the data. Chapter 5 focuses on how to analyze the data including how to use the macros and understand the results. Chapter 6 shows how randomization tests fit into the body of statistical inference. Chapter 7 discusses size and power. The book concludes with a demonstration of how to edit or modify the macros or use parts of them to write your own.
Ideal as a text for courses on single-case, small n design, and/or randomization tests taught at the graduate level in psychology (especially clinical, counseling, educational, and school), education, human development, nursing, and other social and health sciences, this inexpensive book also serves as a supplement in statistics or research methods courses. Practitioners and researchers with an applied clinical focus also appreciate this book's accessible approach. An introduction to basic statistics, SPSS, and Excel is assumed.
<b>A comprehensive, state-of-the-art guide to pavement design and materials</b> <p> With innovations ranging from the advent of <i>Superpave</i>™, the data generated by the Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) project, to the recent release of the Mechanistic-Empirical  pavement design guide developed under NCHRP Study 1-37A, the field of pavement engineering is experiencing significant development. <i>Pavement Design and Materials</i>  is a practical reference for both students and practicing engineers that explores all the aspects of pavement engineering, including materials, analysis, design, evaluation, and economic analysis. <p> Historically, numerous techniques have been applied by a multitude of jurisdictions dealing with roadway pavements. This book focuses on the best-established, currently applicable techniques available. <p> <i>Pavement Design and Materials</i> offers complete coverage of: <ul type="disc"> <li>The characterization of traffic input <li>The characterization of pavement bases/subgrades and aggregates <li>Asphalt binder and asphalt concrete characterization <li>Portland cement and concrete characterization <li>Analysis of flexible and rigid pavements <li>Pavement evaluation <li>Environmental effects on pavements <li>The design of flexible and rigid pavements <li>Pavement rehabilitation <li>Economic analysis of alternative pavement designs </ul> <p> The coverage is accompanied by suggestions for software for implementing various analytical techniques described in these chapters. These tools are easily accessible through the book’s companion Web site, which is constantly updated to ensure that the reader finds the most up-to-date software available.
"Remarkable. Our little boy is only 3 weeks old really focusing on these nature and science based images at such an early age. Brilliant idea!" Owen, Bristol, UK

Long before the European discovered the riches of America, the Mexican Indians had developed and passed on unique artistic traditions. The Aztecs in particular inherited the Toltec and Mixtec cultures, as well as instilling their own experiences and beliefs into the local artwork. A broad spectrum of these bold and intricate patterns and motifs -- serpents, monsters, calendar stone designs, eagles, sun-designs, architectural ornaments, pottery decoration, et cetera -- is presented here.
