Statistics Solutions is the Country’s leader in statistical consulting for academic researchers and doctoral students for 20 years. We have assisted over 2,000 dissertation students with methodology and results chapters and URR/IRB applications from every online university and many brick-and-mortar universities. We offer three levels of service: (1) Dissertation Consulting, (2) free online resources, directories, and (coming soon) free results chapter on-line application, and (3) Online Membership.
Dissertation and researcher consulting services assist with thorny, yet critical tasks in every research project. The heart of every methodology chapter is articulating the research questions and hypotheses in statistical language, selecting the appropriate statistical tests given the research hypotheses and level of measurement of the survey instrument, and justifying the sample size for your study. The other major task is conducting analyses, assessing the assumptions of those analyses, reporting the findings in narrative and APA 6th edition tables and figures, and clearly explaining the findings to confidently write a discussion chapter and defend the work. Confidentiality and privacy of your data and services are very important to us. We’re also a member of the BBB with an A grade!
Our free resources provide a description of most of the common statistical tests used in dissertations. The description includes the assumptions of the analyses and what kinds of research questions are answered from the analyses. The directories provide list of the leading survey instruments we’ve worked with over the years, a description of the scales and subscales, and links to purchase them or get approval to use them. Statistics Solutions Pro is an online application that permits researchers to upload data, conduct basic statistical analyses, AND had the results interpreted in both narrative and APA 6th edition tables and figures.
Our membership resources are free, basic ($49), or full-access ($89) membership. The free membership provides an APA-formatted dissertation template. The template not only formats the table of contents, pagination, and reference format, but also describes the different chapters and sections within each chapter.
The basic membership provides a statistical analysis selection tool and sample size calculations. The selection tool helps you decide the appropriate statistical test should be for your study. The sample size tool provides sample size calculations, narrative write-up, and references for most statistical tests at small, medium, and large effect sizes.
Full-access membership adds to the basic membership by providing data analysis plan templates, a SPSS manual, and SPSS videos. The data analysis templates give a narrative for a particular statistical test with the assumptions of the test and the justification for its appropriateness. The SPSS manual describes over 20 statistical tests, how to conduct them in SPSS, and how to interpret the analyses. The videos show the viewer step-by-step how to conduct various statistical tests in SPSS.
