UNIT 5 ASSIGNMENT

Required Software: PSPPURL

GNU PSPP is a program for statistical analysis of sampled data. It is a free replacement for the proprietary program SPSS. PSPP can perform descriptive statistics, T-tests, ANOVA, linear and logistic regression, measures of association, cluster analysis, reliability and factor analysis, non-parametric tests and more

This course requires the use of PSPP via one of the following ways:

The Recording tab in PowerPoint can help you turn a slide presentation into a video with audio narration. You record the presentation in PowerPoint and then share it with your audience using YouTube or another video/social sharing site.

You may export your presentation to a video using Export to Video found under the Recording tab:

• ## Unit Learning Outcomes

• This unit covers the following CLO(s):CLO 6. Demonstrate the ability to construct, conduct, and present a Chi-square test of independence.CLO 8. Demonstrate the ability to correctly format findings as to make them accessible to a research community.This unit covers the following ULO(s):
• Articulate and conduct a Chi-square test of independence involving a reduced data set.
• Properly express the null and alternative hypotheses for a Chi-square test of independence test.
• Present APA-formatted results of a Chi-square test of independence test using a narrated PowerPoint presentation.
• ## Reading, Lecture, and Preparation Materials

• The following resources cover the basics of the chi-square test of independence and Cramerâ€™s V: (a) NCBI Paper; (b) BioStat Handbook; (c) Contingency Tables and (d) a demonstration video. Please review these materials as to learn about the: (a) purpose and utility of chi-square test of independence and Cramerâ€™s V; (b) the chi-square test of independence hypotheses; (c) how to reject (or fail to reject) the null hypothesis given Î± = 0.05. You must review these materials before attending lecture.

Be sure to review all the unitâ€™s material before engaging this analysis and be prepared to conduct your own analysis using PSPP. You should already have a copy GRC 605â€™s data set and have installed PSPP. Thus, all that remains is for you to import the data set into PSPP and perform the test of independence for the following:First Chi-square Test:

• Rows: NUM_CARS
• Columns: NUM_DEFAULTS

Second Chi-square Test:

• Rows: LIK_COMFORT
• Columns: NUM_DEFAULTS

Third Chi-square Test:

• Rows: NUM_CARS

## Presentation: Conducting a Simple Regression

Presentation: Conducting a Simple Regression and reviewing the literature

Your goal is to apply the concepts from the units reading and lecture as to create a presentation demonstrating the ability to conduct a regression analysis and present your findings. You will also summarize some of the research that you have read during the term. Be sure to review all the unitâ€™s material before engaging this analysis and be prepared to conduct your own analysis using PSPP. You should already have a copy GRC 605â€™s data set and have installed PSPP. Thus, all that remains is for you to import the data set into PSPP and perform regressions for the following:

First Regression Test:

• Can we predict an individualâ€™s debt by knowing their income?
• Dependent Variable: DEBT
• Independent Variable: INCOME

Second Regression Test:

• Can we predict an individualâ€™s savings by knowing their income?
• Dependent Variable: SAVINGS
• Independent Variable: INCOME

Third Regression Test:

• Can we predict an individualâ€™s portfolio value by knowing their savings?
• Dependent Variable: STOCKS
• Independent Variable: SAVINGS

You should find two significant results. Present your results using a 5-7-minute presentation discussing all three results.

After you have conducted your analysis, select three of the articles you have read during the term. These were in your syllabus. For each of those three articles, write an annotated bibliography (may take a couple of slides). Then create another slide to summarize why you chose those articles and how you found them helpful during the course.

Your presentation must: (a) present a proper title page; (b) offer an agenda; (c) state and justify the null and alternative hypotheses for the relevant hypothesis tests along with APA formatted presentations with the findings; (d) contain a slide covering main takeaways from the presentation; and (e) conclude by thanking the audience and opening the presentation to questions.

Your presentation will be graded using the rubric. Upload the narrated video presentation to YouTube, Vimeo, or similar video sharing site. Please post a brief message and the video URL to this forum. Also, you are encouraged to offer constructive critiques and questions for classmates. You may find an APA formatted example of a regression in the forum. Please use it to format your findings.
