Dataset Generator from Dr. Richard Landers

So. I shared my little blog on the Teaching of Psychology list serv last week. And within the next 24 hours, I received about 1000 page views, which blew my mind. Honestly, I know it can be an up-hill battle to teach statistics and I love the idea that maybe I'm giving my colleagues some new ideas to spice up their classes.

Better yet, I received emails from fellow psychologists with websites to share. One of these psychologists was Dr. Richard Landers from Old Dominion University.

So, is it just me, or has anyone else thought, "Gosh, I wish I could just create a data set for <insert statistical test here> that would be <sig/ns> so that I could ensure that my students had the experience of analyzing that kind of test?"

Well, Richard's website will provide you with exactly that! Not only do you get the data set, but you get the APA write up and output for the data as well! Richard created it as a study guide for his students but I can see where an instructor would benefit from it as well.

Additionally, here is a link to Richard's lab website

Thanks, Richard! Additionally, if anyone else has any ideas for good sites to share, please email me.

  1. This is a great resource. I wish there was a multivariate version of it, though, because it's not easy coming up with good data sets for things like ANCOVA or MANOVA

  2. Thanks Jessica. I had actually considered creating a multivariate version but it would take a lot more time. Need a grant. :)
