Scenario 1

In the first scenario, one sample t-test was used. This was used due to the fact that we needed to

understand if there existed a significant difference between the mean of the data used and 6.The

following was the procedure for the analysis:

1: On the main menu, click Analyze > Compare Means > One-Sample T Test

2. Click the variable Q46a. Make sure you move it to the Test Variable box by use of the

arrow button. In the box, enter the mean of the population you are comparing by changing the

current value of "0" to "6".

3. Click the options button. The One-Sample T-Test will be presented. Ensure that the default is

set at 95% confidence intervals. You will consider excluding cases analysis by analysis in the

value missing area. The default should be 95% confidence intervals and Exclude cases analysis

by analysis in the –Missing Values– area.

4. Click the Continue button, which well lead you to One-Sample T Test dialogue box

5. Press OK button for the output to be produced.
