Url: http://www.uvm.edu/~dhowell/StatPages/Swimming/Swimming.html
Creator: Howell, David
Publisher: University of Vermont
Description: Created by David Howell of the University of Vermont, this website is self described as: "This document was prepared as an illustration of the use of both t tests and correlation/regression analysis in drawing conclusions from data in an actual study." The study compares athletic performance of swimmers that are optimists versus pessimists. Howell provides: an introduction, a section on explanatory style, a section on athletic performance, methods and results. This is a great look at how statistics can be applied to many different disciplines, in this case sports, and provide wonderful insight into different aspects of the field.
