In Statistics in Music Education Research, author Joshua Russell explains the process of using a range of statistical analyses from inception to research design to data entry to final analysis using understandable descriptions and examples from extant music education research. He explores four main aspects of music education research: understanding logical concepts of statistical procedures and their outcomes; critiquing the use of different procedures in
extant and developing research; applying the correct statistical model for not only any given dataset, but also the correct logic determining which model to employ; and reporting the results of a given
statistical procedure clearly and in a way that provides adequate information for the reader to determine if the data analysis is accurate and interpretable. While it is written predominately for graduate students in music education courses, Statistics in Music Education Research will also help music education researchers and teachers of music educators gain a better understanding of how parametric statistics are employed and interpreted in music education.
