Question description

Lab project phase 2 fix.sav

My SPSS data file need to be fix. this is the teacher said:

This is backwards.  The questions are the variables, not the people.  The Variables are Q1, Q2,...Q10. Then, each case is entered. People go down the left side. answers across the page

Your data indicates that everyone disagreed with just about every item. Is that correct?

You may send me your corrected file as an email attachment if you would like for me to check it before you proceed to the next phase of the assignment. I can possibly make adjustments to your score at that point.

 This is the instruction for the data  Phase 2: Raw Data Scoring

You will collect data from at least 12 people, using a survey that is provided in the Lab Project folder found in the Assignment Instructions folder. This folder also contains documents outlining the instructions regarding anonymity and rights of the participants, as well as how to administer the survey—it is important that you follow these guidelines while collecting data.

The only precondition to participating in the survey is that participants must be at least 15 years old; otherwise, participants can be of any gender, race, religious background, etc. It is important to emphasize that the results of the survey are anonymous by pointing out the instructions at the top of the survey. For your information as a student, the questions on the survey are derived from instruments used in published studies of orthodox Christian beliefs, including Francis, Williams, & Robbins (2010) and Kaldor & Francis (2000). The survey is limited to 10 questions due to length limitations placed by online survey services. Do not add or remove any questions when administering the survey.

Once you have data from at least 12 individuals (you can have more—in fact, the more the better!), you must score the surveys and enter the data into an SPSS file. Directions for scoring the surveys and creating the SPSS file are included under the Lab Project Phase 2 section in the Lap Project folder found in the Assignment Instructions folder.

Phase 3: SPSS Output

Your next job is to choose the type of analysis that best answers the research question based on the type of data available. Hint: Due to the brief nature of the course, the statistical test appropriate for this lab is one that is covered sometime during the first 5 modules/weeks. This will give you enough time to reflect on information you have already learned and run the analysis. More specific directions for the data analysis are included in the Lab Project Phase 3 section in the Lap Project folder found in the Assignment Instructions folder.

To complete this phase of the lab, you must choose the appropriate statistical analysis, run the test using your SPSS data file, and turn in the following:

1.  SPSS output

2.  The appropriate related SPSS graph

Phase 4: APA Results

It is time to present your findings. During this phase, you will write a short Results section in current APA style that presents the results of your statistical test as well as interprets these results in light of the research question. The Results section must be 1–2 paragraphs must include:

1.  The results of your analysis, including the value of the appropriate test statistic, the significance level, and any other pertinent information (sample size, etc.).

2.  Several sentences that interpret these results, including the following information:

·  Were the results significant or not?

·  Do these results lead you to accept or reject the null hypothesis?

·  What are the strengths and weaknesses of the statistical test that was used?

·  Are there any characteristics of the sample or the data collection method that should be taken into consideration when interpreting these results that you would mention briefly to the reader?

Phase 5: Discussion Board Forum 2

The final phase of the lab gives you a chance to reflect on the results you obtained and share your thoughts with the class. You have collected the data, run the tests, and presented the results—now you can step back and think about what it might mean.

  1. Was there any sort of relationship between church attendance and sound doctrinal belief based on your data set? Remember, each of you may have gotten different results, so there is no right or wrong answer. Do these results match your initial prediction from Discussion Board Forum 1, or are they different?
  2. How generalizable do you think your results are?
  3. Do the results reflect the statements made by Quarles (2011) in the excerpt you read earlier (of little relationship between the variables), or do they demonstrate something different?
  4. Write about at least 1 implication these results could have for pastors, Sunday school teachers, and other church leaders.
