The purpose of this research was to analyze recent statistics textbooks in the behavioral sciences in terms of their coverage of exploratory data analysis (EDA) philosophy and techniques. Twenty popular texts were analyzed. EDA philosophy was not addressed in the vast majority of texts. Only three texts had an entire chapter on EDA. None of the authors used the term "confirmatory factor analysis" or discussed model building or cross-validation. Seven texts contained references to published work by Tukey, but these references were mainly for specific techniques, most typically the stem-and-leaf display and box-and-whiskers plot, which were presented in 15 and 9 texts respectively. The paper ends with recommendations for integrating EDA into the fields of psychology and education. (Contains 1 table and 35 references.) (Author/SLD)
