Buchbeschreibung "The book will prove to be useful for students, researchers and teachers employing research methodology in one way or the other. A series of modern trends, highlighting the changes in research techniques over two decades, questioning the dependability of behavioural measures, mentioning about the de ritualization of research methods as well as nullity of null hypothesis and the dogma of designs, has been presented. Some practical procedures for most frequently used statistical tests have also been worked out and given for the benefit of the researchers. Artikel-Nr. Concept-9788170225362
