This practical guide explains the use of randomization tests and provides example designs and macros for implementation in IBM SPSS and Excel. It reviews the theory and practice of single-case and small-n designs so readers can draw valid causal inferences from small-scale clinical studies. The macros and example data are provided on the book's website so that users can run analyses of the text data as well as data from their own studies.
The new edition features:
The book opens with an overview of single case and small n designs -- why they are needed and how they differ from descriptive case studies. Chapter 2 focuses on the basic concepts of randoization tests. Next how to choose and implement a randomization design is reviewed including material on how to perform the randomizations, how to select the number of observations, and how to record the data. Chapter 5 focuses on how to analyze the data including how to use the macros and understand the results. Chapter 6 shows how randomization tests fit into the body of statistical inference. Chapter 7 discusses size and power. The book concludes with a demonstration of how to edit or modify the macros or use parts of them to write your own.
Ideal as a text for courses on single-case, small n design, and/or randomization tests taught at the graduate level in psychology (especially clinical, counseling, educational, and school), education, human development, nursing, and other social and health sciences, this inexpensive book also serves as a supplement in statistics or research methods courses. Practitioners and researchers with an applied clinical focus also appreciate this book's accessible approach. An introduction to basic statistics, SPSS, and Excel is assumed.

With AutoCAD 2011, Autodesk enhanced the user interface and improved many drawing functions including annotative dimensions and text. Neither simplistic nor exhaustive, this revised edition of Digital Drawing for Designers teaches the latest version of AutoCAD by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world. Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), the book progresses through architectural graphic standards allowing students to create drawings and effectively communicate their design ideas. Advanced features - such as annotative dimensions, annotative blocks, express tools, and linking drawings (XREFs) - are also covered. Instructions are illustrated using language and concepts from manual drafting, creating a smooth transition to the digital environment for all designers. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons and visual illustrations. Experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the AutoCAD guide written for interior designers and architects. Features: - Updated for AutoCAD 2011: compatible with AutoCAD versions 14 through 2011 - Illustrations depicting tools, functions, the AutoCAD ribbon interface, and keyboard commands - Practice exercises to reinforce each chapter's topics - Clear explanation of drawing and printing with line weight - Quick reference aids: command reference guide, index, and large-type page headers - Companion website features downloads for each chapter, including exercises, plot styles, title blocks, drawing templates, and professional AutoCAD drawings Instructor's Resources: - Instructor's Guide includes course syllabi and chapter outlines, tips for teachers, and problems and assignments to suit the skill levels of both interior design students and new interior designers

This second edition provides the basic, practical understanding of computer-based design that has led to the creation of a knowledge-driven approach. This approach, through constraint modelling, has been specifically developed to handle the problems of conflict present in the conceptual stages of a real design situation.
