Dr. Brad Huitema has published a second edition of "The Analysis of Covariance and Alternatives: Statistical Methods for Experiments, Quasi-Experiments, and Single-Case Studies."
Western Michigan University Professor of psychology, Dr. Bradley E. Huitema, recently published the second edition of “The Analysis of Covariance and Alternatives: Statistical Methods for Experiments, Quasi-Experiments, and Single-Case Studies.” Huitema describes his work as “a complete guide to cutting edge techniques and practices for applying covariance analysis methods.”
Huitema serves not only as professor of psychology in the Industrial/Organizational Psychology program at WMU, but also as a statistical consultant in the behavioral sciences for WMU and the Children’s Memorial Hospital of Northerwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, where the impetus for his research arose.
The first edition of “Analysis of Covariance and Alternatives” was written in 1980 and was well received by critics in the field, but as approaches to psychology began to change, Huitema saw a need to update the book. The second edition (which is twice the length of the original) explains simple and multiple analysis of covariance using the Fisher and general linear model approaches, several variable methods, power analysis and application of covariances, measurement of error correction, and score methods and offers offers in-depth discussions about assumptions, results, and unique approaches and the latest developments in the field.
“The major audience for this book is graduate students and research professionals working in behavioral and medical science fields such as behavioral medicine, epidemiology, industrial/organizational psychology, and public health,” said Huitema.
Huitema received his B.A. from Southern Illinois in 1961, his M.A. from Western in 1962, and his Ph.D. from Colorado State in 1968. He has served as a member of the editorial board for the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and Behavioral Assessment and oversees several journals including The American Statistician, Behavioral Research Methods, Instruments, and Computers, and many more.
