REFERENCES

  • The Research Methods Knowledge Base by William Trochim, Ph.D., Cornell University. Students may obtain this text online for roughly $20. That may be the cheapest review book you can get. I reviewed the book online. Good section on scaling. Gives you a reasonable review of Guttman, Likert, and Thurstone scaling techniques. Also does some pretty good review of validity. That's an area you might need to review before comprehensive exams. Written in everyday English. Sample quizzes available. Lots of vocabulary links, so you can review the meaning of terms you've forgotten. It claims interactivity, but that's kind of falxe. It's really just pretty much a text; about all you can do with it is use it as you would a hardcopy text. But if you're computer literate, it looks like a good deal. Paperback copies are available, but then it gets expensive again. jeanne Link added July 24, 2002.
