Question description

You have to fix my SPSS data so that it can work and you have to use my data in order to do the homework

Phase 2: Raw Data

You will each individually collect data from at least 12 people, using a survey that is provided 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 belief, 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.  Please 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 in the assignment instructions folder. 

Your completed Phase 2 SPSS Raw Data file is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 4.

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.  One 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 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 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 3 materials are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 6.

Phase 4: APA Results

It’s time to present your findings.  During this phase you will write a short APA-style Results section that presents the results of your statistical test as well as interprets these results in light of the research question.  The Results section should be 1-2 paragraphs long, and it 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?
