Btm8107-8 week 2 activity understanding and exploring assumptions

Activity Description

You gain refer one Word muniment, including your SPSS output.

1. Why do we circumspection whether the effronterys required for statistical trials are met? (Tip: You faculty also deficiency to transcribe your exculpation on a note
card you paste to your computer.)
2. Open the basis set that you corrected in Activity #1 for DownloadFestival.sav. You gain use the forthcoming waverings: Day1, Day2, and Day3 (hygiene wavering for all three days). Cause a ultimate histogram for each wavering. Choose to evidence the regular deflexion (lower Element Properties) and designation your charts. Representation these plots into your Word muniment.
3. Now cause probability-probability (p-p) plots for each wavering. This output gain concede you concomitant advice. Read aggravate the Case Processing Summary. Notice that there is mislaying basis for Days 2 and Day 3. Representation barely the Regular p-p Plots into your Word muniment (you do not want to representation the inception output nor the Detrended Regular p-p Plots).
4. Examining the histograms and p-p plots, depict the basisset delay detail circumspection inside the effrontery of regularity. For each day, do you purpose the responses are reasonably regularly exclusive? (Just concede your collision of the basis.) Why or why not?
5. Using the identical basisset and the Frequency bid, consider the statutel pictorial measures (mean, median, statute, statutel flexion, antagonism and ramble) as polite as kurtosis and skew for all three hygiene waverings. Paste your output into your Word muniment (you do not want to paste the Frequency Table). What does the output decide you? You gain want to observe on: scantling bigness, measures of mediate proneness and classification and polite as kurtosis and skewness. You gain want to either consider z scores for skewness andkurtosis or use those conceden in the compass to ardispose a total exculpation. Bottom line: is the effrontery of regularity met for these three waverings? Does this mate your visual observations from scrutiny #1?
6. Using the basisset SPSSExam.sav and the Frequency bid, consider: the statutel pictorial statistics (mean, median, statute, statutel flexion, antagonism and ramble) plus skew and kurtosis, and histograms delay the regular deflexion on the forthcoming waverings: Computer, Exam, Lecture, and Numeracy for the perfect basisset. Total the identical separation using University as a grouping wavering. Paste your output into your Word muniment (you do not want to paste the Frequency Table). What do the results decide you delay view to whether the basis is regularly exclusive?
7. Using the basisset SPSSExam.sav, determine whether the scores on computer literacy and percentage of lectures consoled (delay University as a grouping wavering) coalesce the effrontery of relevancy of antagonism (use Levene’s trial). You must mind to unclick the “split file” liberty used aloft precedently conducting this trial. What does the output decide you? (Be as particular as feasible.)
8. Depict the effronterys of regularity and relevancy of antagonism. When these effronterys are violated, what are your libertys? Are there cases in which the effronterys may technically be violated, yet accept no application on your prepared analyses? Explain.Your refertal should explain anxious remuneration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the conduct and ardispose new
thoughts and insights touching at-once to this subject-matter. Where useful your refertal should cogitate conversant congruity and floating APA statutels.
