Dretzke authors new edition of Excel statistics manual
Beverly J. Dretzke, Ph.D., research associate, Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI), has authored Statistics with Microsoft Excel, a manual that explains how to use Excel for statistical analysis. The manual, published by Pearson, is now in its 5th edition. The 1st edition was published when Dretzke was a professor in the Psychology Department at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and her teaching assignment included an undergraduate course in statistics. The department had selected Excel for use in the course and, since no suitable manual was available at that time, Dretzke took on the task of writing one. In addition to this manual, Dretzke has also written companion manuals for statistics textbooks published by Pearson: Larson & Farber's Elementary Statistics: Picturing the World, 5th ed. and Mendenhall & Sincich's Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences, 5th ed.
