Assignment

 
Assignment: Chi Square
Previously in this course, you worked with parametric statistics like t-tests, ANOVAs, and correlations. In order to use parametric procedures such as those, the dependent variable must be measured on either an interval or a ratio scale. Sometime, however, the variables of interest are categorical; that is, they are not measured on an interval or a ratio scale. For example, the categorical variables of gender, race, or political affiliation are not measured with interval or ratio scales. For this Assignment, you will examine the nonparametric procedure called chi square, which allows you to analyze categorical data.
To prepare for this Assignment, imagine that you have information about how 20 nursing students and 20 psychology students felt about starting PSYC 3002 on Day 1 of this class. You want to know if nursing students and psychology students felt differently about embarking on the Introduction to Basic Statistics journey. You can find the data set for this Assignment in the Weekly Data Set forum found in the Discussions area of the course navigation menu.
By Day 7
To complete this Assignment, submit your answers to the following. Use SPSS to determine if academic program is related to feelings about PSYC 3002 by computing the appropriate chi square test.

Explain what scale of measurement is used to measure feeling about PSYC 3002. Explain how you know.
State whether this scenario requires a goodness of fit test or a test of independence. Explain your answer.
Before computing the chi square, state the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis in words (not formulas).
Identify the obtained χ2 using SPSS and report it in your answer document.
