Lab project phase 2 fix.sav
My SPSS data file need to be fix. this is the teacher said:
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?
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.
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.
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
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.
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:
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:
results of your analysis, including the value of the appropriate test
statistic, the significance level, and any other pertinent information (sample
sentences that interpret these results, including the following information:
the results significant or not?
these results lead you to accept or reject the null hypothesis?
are the strengths and weaknesses of the statistical test that was used?
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.
- 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
generalizable do you think your results are?
- 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?
- Write about
at least 1 implication these results could have for pastors, Sunday school
teachers, and other church leaders.
