At last, a comprehensive guide that meets psychologists and other social scientists' growing need to master the tools of statistical prediction.

Prediction Statistics for Psychological Assessment, by R. Karl Hanson, is the first book to teach students and practitioners the nuts and bolts of prediction statistics, while illustrating the utility of prediction and prediction tools in applied psychological practice.

This valuable resource uses real-world examples, helpful explanations and practice exercises to support the use of prediction tools in psychological assessment.
