Experiments with people revelations from social psychology by Robert P Abelson ( )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is ideal as a main or supplementary test for seminars and courses in social psychology, but could equally serve as a supplementary text for courses in introductory psychology of research design. Written in a lively and conversational style, Experiments With People should also appeal to anyone wishing to learn more about social issues and dynamics, or keen to gain greater insight into themselves or others."--BOOK JACKET
Statistics as principled argument by Robert P Abelson ( Book )
17 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author delves into the too-often-dismissed problems of interpreting quantitative data and then presenting them in the context of a coherent story about one's research ... The focus of the book is that the purpose of statistics is to organize a useful argument from quantitative evidence, using a form of principled rhetoric. Five criteria, described by the acronym MAGIC (magnitude, articulation, generality, interestingness, and credibility) are proposed as crucial features of a persuasive, principled argument. Particular statistical methods are discussed, with minimum use of formulas and heavy data sets. The ideas throughout the book revolve around elementary probability theory, t tests, and simple issues of research design. It is therefore assumed that the reader has already had some access to elementary statistics. Many examples are included to explain the connection of statistics to substantive claims about real phenomena

Beliefs, reasoning, and decision making : psycho-logic in honor of Bob Abelson by Roger C Schank ( Book )
6 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is not unusual for a festschrift to include offerings from several areas of study, but it is highly unusual for those areas to cross disciplinary lines. This book, in doing just that, is a testimony to Bob Abelson's impact on the disciplines of social psychology, artificial intelligence and cognitive science, and the applied areas of political psychology and decision-making. The contributors demonstrate that their association with Abelson, whether as students or colleagues, has resulted in an impressive intellectual cross-fertilization

Spectral analysis and the study of individual differences in the performance of routine, repetitive tasks; a technical report by Robert P Abelson ( Book )
4 editions published in 1953 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The deviations made in jabbing a stylus at target lines were measured from a reference line in serial order, and a spectral analysis was made of the results. Spectral analysis decomposes the total oscillation of a time- series into oscillations of varying rates and specifies the relative contribution of each component of oscillation. Thirty-three subjects were tested on 5 task variations, and 15 were retested after a month. Reliable individual differences occurred in 3 measures: the proportion of low-frequency components in the spectrum, variance of the observations, and speed; only the first measure depended on spectral analysis. The 3 measures were related to general personality characteristics by the inductive association of factors
