I am working on a new webpage for my part-time job as a methodological/statistical consultant for (psychology) students at my university. On this website I would like to place several links to online recourses for clients to consult themselves.

So I am looking for links to websites that offer a lot of statistical information. Preferably written in a way that is easy to comprehend. Most students use SPSS, but information on other programs is welcome too.

So far I have:

  • www.crossvalidated.com
  • www.statmethods.net
  • $\begingroup$ What kind of students are they? i.e., Are they students doing statistics 101 or are they students doing their own research project and needing advice on how to conduct their analyses for their research project? $\endgroup$ – Jeromy Anglim May 31 '11 at 10:24
  • $\begingroup$ Mainly students doing their research projects. $\endgroup$ – Sacha Epskamp May 31 '11 at 10:31

    $\begingroup$ Made this CW as I don't think there's a single best response. $\endgroup$ – chl May 31 '11 at 11:04
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, wanted to make it CW myself but don't have enough rep yet here:) $\endgroup$ – Sacha Epskamp May 31 '11 at 11:25
  • $\begingroup$ You can't make it CW yourself, unfortunately. Better to flag your question for mods attention. $\endgroup$ – chl May 31 '11 at 11:30

In general, encouraging research students to use Google and sites like Cross Validated to ask and answer their own questions is important.

Specific Sites

A little self-promotion

One of my main aims over the last few years has been to develop resources designed to assist psychology students perform the data analysis for their research. Thus, I hope you'll forgive the self-promotion. The following links may be relevant:

R in Psychology

I also have a post on getting started with R.

The following quotes the section of that post listing specific resources for researchers in psychology.

  • $\begingroup$ BTW, you may want to add the psychoR mailing, maintained by Jan de Leeuw. $\endgroup$ – chl May 31 '11 at 12:03
  • $\begingroup$ @chl thanks. I didn't know about the psychoR mailing list. $\endgroup$ – Jeromy Anglim May 31 '11 at 12:10

I know you didn't ask, probably because you know, the answer, but absolutely best statistics tests (for multivariate analysis) for psychologists (& for most other social scientists, although they don't all realize it) are:

  • Cohen, J., Cohen, P., West, S.G. & Aiken, L.S. Applied Multiple Regression/Correlation Analysis for the Behavioral Sciences, (L. Erlbaum Associates, Mahwah, N.J., 2003).
  • Judd, C.M., McClelland, G.H. & Ryan, C.S. Data analysis : a model comparison approach, (Routledge/Taylor and Francis, New York, NY, 2008).

The UCLA server has a lot of ressources for statistical computing, including annotated output from various statistical packages.
