Scale Calculations
and Our Sample Slide

3

This assignment has two parts. In Part A, you will calculate each participant's score on every scale of your survey. In some cases, this might involve calculating a mean. In other cases, you might need to calculate a total. Once this is done, you will find the mean scale score for all participants - for every scale. To find out exactly what and how to calculate these, click on your project below. 

Once you have found the mean for every scale on your survey, copy and paste this SPSS output into a word doc or pdf. Hi-light the means and upload this to the solo analysis for team assignment 3.

In Part B you will finish the "our sample" slide that will become part of your end of semester presentation. Steps 1--3 below are the same for each project. However, each team will need to include project-specific statistics on their "our sample" slide. These additional requirements are listed further down on this web page. Need help finding the frequencies for each category of a variable? Check out this short video!

1.  Calculate the mean and std dev for the age of your sample. Find out the total sample size. To do this, just scroll down to the very last data entry in the "data view" window of SPSS. This row number represents the total sample size.

 

2.  After the "our sample" slide, Include another slide that has all the relevant SPSS output pasted on to it... hi-light the numbers that you used on the "our sample" slide

3.  save the pptx as a pdf and submit the pdf to canvas (only the team leader for this assignment submits)
