Assuming no prior knowledge, this text provides a concise, practical and accessible introduction to using, analysing and interpreting statistics and methodologies in empirical work using R or JASP. It takes an activity-based approach, in which students are first stimulated to consider a problem or question and find their own solution before the conventional way of solving that problem or question is introduced. 'How To' guides on R and JASP, which take students step-by-step through statistical analyses and practical assignments, are available on the book's companion website.

This book will be an invaluable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Applied Linguistics.

References.
An excellent step-by-step introduction to both statistics and statistical software packages, this new edition has been thoroughly revised and substantially augmented, providing detailed guidance for not one but two open access software packages. New sections on linear regression and effect sizes make this edition even more immediately useful for both staff and students. – Gabriel Ozon, University of Sheffield, UK.
This revised edition deserves to be on the bedside table of every applied linguist: it is enlightening and practical, and reading it is hugely rewarding! – Jean-Marc Dewaele, Birkbeck University of London, UK.
