RES 725 WEEK 6 Nonparametric Tests

Chapter 4 of a dissertation is used to present your findings from the data you gathered during your research. Your data should be presented in a logical order and in sufficient detail which includes output from SPSS including tables, graphs and other visual representations of data created by the software. The output you copy from SPSS and include in your written work may need to be reformatted so that it is consistent with APA guidelines.  Approach the following exercise as though you were writing Chapter 4 of your dissertation.

Access the data files you saved to SPSS in Week 1.

Use diet.sav for the diet example with ranks (Table 6.5) in Ch. 6 (p. 251) and put it into SPSS to do a Freidman’s ANOVA as the textbook does.

Complete a test for normality before you do the analysis.

Write a 5 – 10 page paper, not including front matter and references, reporting your results. This paper serves as practice for writing Chapter 4 of your dissertation.

Include references to support your work.

Explain the following as if your reader had only a general understanding of statistics:

  • The statistical test you used
  • The problem the data set is based on
  • What your research questions are
  • The hypothesis you are trying to show through statistics
  • What the statistical test showed

Include tables and graphs from your SPSS output.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
