Read the research scenario in the text, then follow the directions below as some questions

 

have been altered.

 

1. Paste SPSS output.

 

2. What are the values of t and p for ?Equal Variances Assumed??

 

3. Answer the following questions:

 

a. What is the mean eating time for normal weight individuals?

 

b. What is the standard deviation for overweight individuals?

 

c. What is the result of Levene?s test for homogeneity of variance (F and p values)?

 

4. Write an APA-style Results section based on your analyses. All homework ?Results

 

sections? should follow the example given in the SPSS tutorials and the Course Content

 

document ?Writing Results of Statistical Tests in APA Format.? Remember to include a

groups, using the following steps (covered also in Lesson 21)

 

a. Go to Graphs?Legacy Dialogs?Boxplot?Select ?Simple??Select ?Summaries

 

for Groups of Cases?

 

b. Click ?Define?: Variable = ?Time Spent? (this is your dependent variable) and

 

Category Axis = ?Weight? (this is your independent, or grouping, variable)

 

c. OK

 

Part Two:

 

1. Research Scenario: An industrial/organizational psychologist is interested in studying

 

the effect of the type of bonus system on employee morale at a tech company. He divides

 

employees into two groups. One group works within a standard bonus system, with larger

 

one-time bonuses granted by upper management during each quarter. The other group

 

works within a system where upper management award smaller bonuses to workers

 

throughout the pay period. At the end of the pay period, the amount of bonuses in each

 

group is the same, with the only difference being when they were awarded. The I/O

 

psychologist then assesses employee morale using a 10-item scale with values ranging

 

from 1 (very low morale) to 50 (very high morale). Using the table below, enter the

 

data into a new SPSS data file and use an independent-samples t test to analyze the

 

claim that the two bonus payment methods result in different levels of employee

 

morale.

 

Page 1 of 3 PSYC 355 The steps of the test will be the same as the ones you have been practicing in Part One of

 

the assignment? the only difference is that you are now responsible for creating the data

 

file as well. Remember to name and define your variables under the ?Variable View,?

 

then return to the ?Data View? to enter and analyze the data. The table is shown on the

 

following page.

2. Create a boxplot illustrating the differences in morale between the two bonus award

 

methods.

 

3. Write an APA-style Results section based on your analyses. All homework ?Results

 

sections? should follow the example given in the SPSS tutorials and the Course Content

 

document ?Writing Results of Statistical Tests in APA Format.? Remember to include a

 

decision about the null hypothesis.

 

Part 3: Cumulative Homework: Choose the correct method from tests learned in previous

 

modules.

 

1. Research Scenario: The effects of a new faith-based anxiety treatment program are

 

studied in a group of elderly patients with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). One of

 

the outcome measures is the Geriatric Anxiety Inventory (GAI) (Pachana et al., 2007), a

 

measure with possible scores from 0?20, with higher scores indicating higher anxiety. A

 

Page 2 of 3 PSYC 355 large group of elderly patients completed the GAI before treatment. Fifteen patients with

 

GAI scores of 10 or higher were chosen to participate in the study. The patients

 

underwent the treatment program and completed the GAI at the end of treatment. The

 

scores are listed below. Do the elderly patients exhibit lessened anxiety, as demonstrated

 

by their GAI scores, after participating in the faith-based treatment program? Choose the

 

correct test to analyze this question, set up the SPSS file, and run the analysis.
