Basic IBM SPSS Analyses


Basic IBM SPSS Analyses

In this first assignment, you will use the data from the grades.sav file that you downloaded in Unit 1.

Using this data, perform a univariate analysis of your choice on the variables provided. Your analysis may be a t  test, an ANOVA, a correlation, a linear or multiple regression, or a  non parametric method. For example, you may want to use gender as an  independent variable, and quiz one scores as a dependent variable and  perform an independent samples t test. Or, as another example,  we might have ethnicity as our independent variable, and run a one way  ANOVA with GPA as the dependent measure.

Be creative, but be sure your variables are correct for the analysis you are doing.

Read the Basic IBM SPSS Analysis Scoring Guide to see the details  of what should be in the assignment. This represents the rubric for  substance and form of the work.

You must include an introduction and rationale for your analysis,  your null and alternative hypotheses, your alpha level, descriptive  statistics, output tables, and conclusions about the null. All tables  and graphs must be properly labeled, and each must be discussed and  interpreted in the paper. Do not just copy and paste tables or graphs  into the assignment. You must show your understanding of the hypothesis  testing method, as well as your understanding of what you are doing.

Write in third person, using a clear and professional tone, voice and style. Use proper APA citations and references as needed.
