Question

Study is conducted 17 males and 17 females using 10 questions using Likert Scale. Strongly disagree to Strongly AgreeWuestions is wrong or necessary to use ananimales in testing. The Data analysis is: Data Analysis: You are given the following information from the t test conducted: t (32) = 1.84, p = .0745; Male M = 5; Female M = 4. Summarize the specific type of statistical test conducted, the results obtained, and conclusions regarding the hypotheses (e.g, can we reject at the .05 or .01 level?). Be sure to include why this specific t test was selected. I also need to know what does the data analysis mean to me?

Answer #1

Type of Test conducted:

The t-test for independent samples is carried out. It was selected because the samples under consideration are independent.

Results obtained:

The test statistic is 1.84.

The p-value is 0.0745.

The mean of the sample for males is 5.

The mean of the sample for females is 4.

Conclusion:

Since the p-value is greater than the level of significance 0.05 or 0.01, do not reject the null hypothesis that there is no difference in males and females means.

The meaning of the data analysis is to check whether the difference between males and females exists or not but the context of the difference is not provided hence we cannot interpret it practically.

QUESTION 24

The following are salaries from 24 human resource managers.
Using the raw measurement data presented, determine whether there
is a statistically significant difference between the salaries of
female and male human resource managers. Create an SPSS data file
and conduct the appropriate statistical test. Answer the following
questions based on your analyses.
a) What is your independent variable and its scale of
measurement?
b) What is your dependent variable and its scale of
measurement?
c) Paste the output of...

Prompt: Suarez et al (1998) collected data on
flatus (farts) and odor intensity (how stinky the farts were) in a
small sample of men and women. The researchers have no specific
hypothesis, but they want to examine whether male and female flatus
differ by odor intensity.
They have collected the following:
Sex: The sex of the participant – 1 = Male; 2
= Female
Odor Intensity Score: On a scale from 0 (no
odor) to 8 (very offensive), they asked...

Problem Set 1: (10 pts)
Research Scenario: As part of their study on
the relation between rejection and depression in adolescents
(Nolan, Flynn, & Garber, 2003), researchers collected data on
externalizing behaviors (e.g., acting out in negative ways, such as
causing fights), anxiety, gender, and age. Some of the data are
presented below (you would need a larger sample size but this is
for practice only). Select and conduct the most appropriate
statistical test to determine whether there is a...

Independent-Samples t-Test
In a research project, researchers track the health and
cognitive functions of the elderly in the community. To examine any
possible gender differences in their sample, they want to see if
the females and the males differ significantly on the education
level (number of years of formal schooling). The researchers are
not predicting any direction in the possible gender differences so
the hypotheses should be non-directional. They would like to run a
two-tailed test with α = .10....

Monumental function in British Neolithic burial practices
Ian Kinnes
The high-risk rate of survival for the non-megalithic series of
Neolithic funerary monuments, recently re-emphasized by Piggott
(1973: 34), introduces a further variable into the deductive study
of burial practices. In Britain and Europe the overall distribution
of monumental forms present both lacunae and a marked preponderance
of cairns over earthen mounds which are in ill accord with the
known or predicted...
