Question

I am trying to put together a research determining the relationship between age and exercise time and if there is a significant difference in gender and exercise times. I would like to determine the dependent variable normality using SPSS. Gender is always independent, but when I'm trying to assess the normality for the age and exercise times. Exercise will always be dependent, but will in this case is age also dependent or independent? How would I determine this on SPSS?

Answer #1

In your research study the **Exercise** is
**dependent** variable and the **age** is
**independent** variable. To asses the relationship
between age and exercise time, first you need to check the
normality of dependent variable (Exercise).

To check the normality of Exercise in SPSS, You click on
**Analysis** menu. Then click on **Descriptive
statistics** followed by **Explore**. In
Explore dialog box, Enter the **Exercise variable** in
the Dependent list, then click on **Plots.** In plot
dialog box right click o**n Normality plots with
tests,** then click on **continue** and press
**ok.**

The SPSS output consists of two tests of Normality, Namely,
**Kolmogorov- Smirnov** and **Shapiro-
Wilk.** The Shapiro- Wilk test used when sample size of
dependent variable (Exercise) lies between 5 to 2000. However the
Kolmogorov- Smirnov test used when sample size of dependent
variable (Exercise) greater than or equal to 2000.

I am trying to put together a research determining the
relationship between age and exercise time and if there is a
significant difference in gender and exercise times. How would I
find the dependent variable normality using SPSS

In SPSS, I am reviewing the test of normality. I am trying to
see what is the relationship between age and exercise time. Ages
range from 20 - 24 with 100 participants. I know I need to test for
the dependent variability normality first, with the age being
independent and the exercise time being dependent. I know that
greater than 0.05 is normally distributed and less than 0.05 is not
normally distributed. But lets say four of my age groups...

In controlled comparison research, the observed relationship
between an independent variable (X) and a dependent variable (Y)
may be caused by some other, uncontrolled compositional difference
(Z). So, we always ask, “How else, besides the independent
variable, are the groups I am comparing not the same?” For the
hypothesis below, do the following: (i) Think up a plausible
alternative causal variable. (ii) Describe how this variable might
affect the relationship between the independent variable and the
dependent variable.

Research Scenario: A developmental psychologist
wants to study the effect of instructional type on learning of the
alphabet. She randomly selects a sample of 20 students at the local
preschool and assigns them to two groups, a “Testing Effect” group
who takes daily tests of recall on the alphabet (n=10) and a
“Meaningful to Self” group who comes up with things they like that
start with each letter of the alphabet and discuss them in groups
(n=10). After one week...

As you saw from the lab PowerPoint slides last week, you will be
doing a research study looking at ‘Aggression Priming” for your
first paper. For this week’s discussion, I want you to discuss with
your group what you think this study is about. What is the
hypothesis? What theory does it come from? What do you predict will
happen (do you expect something different than the hypothesis in
the researcher instructions? If so, what and why?)? Do you think...
