Question description

To prepare

  • Review the datasets provided (DATASET ATTACHED).
  • Construct a research question with social change implications based on one of those datasets.
  • Be sure to focus on the assumptions of this test and ask yourself, “Does it make sense to interpret the mean of this dependent variable?”
  • Remember that you will need categorical predictor variables.
  • USE TEMPLATE (ATTACHED) to write response

By Day 7

The Assignment

Use SPSS to answer the research question you constructed. Then, compose a 1- to 2-paragraph analysis in APA format in which you answer the following questions:

  1. What is the null hypothesis for your question?
  2. What research design(s) would align with this question?
  3. What dependent variable was used and how is it measured?re
  4. What independent variable is used and how is it measured?
  5. If you found significance, what is the strength of the effect?
  6. What is the answer to your research question?
  7. What are the possible implications of social change?

1 Name of Stats Test Student Name Here Walden University 2 Name of Stats Test Introduction In a paragraph identify what statistical test you are doing, what data set you used, and what you are attempting to test using the variables you chose. Research Question Write your one sentence research question here. This should not be written as a question you can answer with a yes or no. Also, you will either use difference, effect, or relationship depending on the type of statistical test you are doing (see underlined word in RQ and hypotheses). You can also see that the independent variables (blue) are listed first and the dependent variable last (green)—do not use colors in your paper. Here is an example: RQ: What is the relationship between the number of candy bars eaten in a day, hours spent exercising each week, and BMI? Hypotheses Null Hypothesis (H0): Write your null hypothesis here. You need to use the terminology “no statistically significant” in the null (see words in bold). You can also see that the independent variables (blue) are listed first and the dependent variable last (green)—do not use colors in your paper. Here is an example: There is no statistically significant relationship between the number of candy bars eaten in a day, hours spent exercising each week, and BMI. Alternative Hypothesis (HA): Write your alternative hypothesis here. You need to use the terminology “statistically significant” in the alternative (see words in bold). You can also see that the independent variables (blue) are listed first and the dependent variable last (green)—do 3 not use colors in your paper. Here is an example: There is a statistically significant relationship between the number of candy bars eaten in a day, hours spent exercising each week, and BMI. Variables Independent Variables (IV): List your independent variables here as well as how they are coded (values) in your dataset. For example: Gender—Male=0; Female=1 Age—Actual age in years at time of data collection Dependent Variables (DV): List your dependent variables here as well as how they are coded (values) in your dataset. For example: Weight—Self-reported weight in pounds at time of data collection Ever been a smoker—0=no; 1=yes Results Write your results section here. This should only be 1-3 paragraphs long—be succinct— but focus the results write up towards your null hypothesis and research question. Make sure that you address if the assumptions of the statistical test are met or not and what you did if they were not met and why. At the end of the results you should include if you are rejecting the null hypothesis and accepting the alternative (or retaining the null if that is appropriate) and why. Please see the examples posted in the announcements for an idea of what you results should look like and also look at the example below. ↓ I highly recommend that you provide an APA formatted table to illustrate the results that you are discussing. It is difficult for the reader to follow the results if you just list a lot of 4 numbers so use a table if the results are more complex than you can explain well in sentence format. However, make sure that the table is completely in APA format (see examples starting on p. 129 of the 6th ed. APA manual) as the tables that are generated by SPSS are not in APA format. The table below is APA formatted. Here is an example of an APA formatted results section: An ANCOVA was conducted to determine the effect of two different therapy approaches on stalking-type behavior after controlling for pre-therapy stalking-type behavior. There was homogeneity of regression slopes as the interaction term was not statistically significant, F(1,46) = .882, p = .353. The Levene's test of homogeneity of covariances (F(1, 48) = 7.19, p = .01), was statistically significant and therefore the assumption was violated. The main effect of therapy approach was statistically significant, F(1, 47) = 5.49, p = .023, partial η2 = .11, indicating that the hours spent in stalking-type behavior was lower after using the cognitive-behavioral therapy approach (M = 55.30, SE = 1.87) as compared to using the psychodynamic therapy approach (M = 61.50, SE = 1.87), as indicated in Table 1. Table 1. Therapy Approach Differences in Stalking-Type Behavior Column Data Data Male 5.45 985 Female 6.24 265 Animal 8.96 35 Mineral 0.89 18 5 The covariate was statistically significant, F(1, 47) = 50.46, p < .05, partial η2 = .52, indicating that amount of time spent in stalking-type behavior before therapy had a statistically significant effect on amount of time spent in stalking-type behavior after therapy. Therefore the null hypothesis is rejected and the alternative accepted. This means that the amount of time spent stalking before therapy should be considered when determining effectiveness of therapy on stalking behavior and the cognitive-behavioral therapy approach may be more effective in treating stalking behavior. ***Make sure to copy and paste your SPSS output (everything produced by SPSS at the end of the paper AFTER the reference list (not in the results section). There is a place at the end of the paper for you to paste this. Conclusion Please provide a short (1 paragraph) summary conclusion. 6 References (Please note that the following references are just examples of APA formatting) Alexander, G., & Bonaparte, N. (2008).
