t Tests and ANOVA

t Tests and ANOVA

This week, you explore key statistical concepts related to data and problem solving through the completion of the following exercises using SPSS and the information found in your Statistics and Data Analysis for Nursing Research textbook. The focus of this assignment is to become familiar with the SPSS data analysis software, and to develop an understanding of how to calculate and summarize inferential statistics using t tests and ANOVA.

To prepare:

  • Review      the Statistics and Data Analysis for Nursing Research chapters      that you read as a part of the Week 5 Learning Resources. As you do so,      pay close attention to the examples presented—they provide information      that will be useful for you to recall when completing the software      exercises. You may also wish to review the Research Methods for      Evidence-Based Practice video resources.
  • Refer      to the Week      5 t Test Exercises (see attached      file) and follow the directions to perform a t test.
  • Download      and save the Polit2SetC.sav (see      attached file) data set. You will open the data file in SPSS.
  • Compare      your data output against the tables presented in the Week 5 t Test Exercises  SPSS Output.      (see attached file)
  • Formulate      an initial interpretation of the meaning or implication of your      calculations.
  • Refer      to the Week      5 ANOVA Exercises (see attached file) and      follow the directions to perform an ANOVA using the Polit2SetA.sav       (see attached file) data set.
  • Compare      your data output against the tables presented in the Week 5 ANOVA Exercises SPSS Output      (see attached file)
  • Formulate      an initial interpretation of the meaning or implication of your      calculations.

To complete:

1) Complete the Part I, Part II, and Part III steps and Assignments as outlined in the Week 5 t Test Exercises (see attached file) page.

2) Complete the steps and Assignment as outlined in the Week 5 ANOVA Exercises (see attached file) page.
