1. Attach your word document for review and grading. Other file formats are not accepted and will not be graded. Use the following filename format: LastName_BUSI720_AssignmentX.docx

2. Include an APA title block with your name, class title, date, and the assignment number.

3. Include a table of contents and a reference section. Number your pages in the footer along with the date. Include a header starting on page 2 with the Course and assignment number.

4. Write the problem number and the problem title as a level one heading (Example ‐ A.1.1: Chapter 2, Problem 2.1, Check the Completed Questionnaires) and then provide your response.

5. Use level two headings with short titles for multi part questions (Example ‐ A1.1.a, Short Title, A1.1.b, Short Title II, etc.)

6. Use appropriate level headings for key elements of your discussion such as Research Questions, Hypotheses, Descriptive Statistics, Assumptions & Conditions, Interpretation, Results, and others. Your goal is to make your analysis easy to follow and logical.

7. Ensure that all tables and graphs are legible and include a figure number.

8. Carefully review your document prior to submission for formatting, flow, and readability. Keep in mind that running the statistical tests is only the first half of the challenge; you must be able to clearly communicate your findings to the reader!

**ASSIGNMENT QUESTION**

A5.1: Chapter 8, Problem 8.1, Chi‐Square and Phi (Or Cramer’s V).

Write a short narrative of your process, an interpretation of your findings, and write your results to include tables. Cut and paste the Case Processing Summary, Crosstabulation, Chi‐Square Tests, and Symetric Measures tables directly into your document and refer to them in your interpretation.

A5.2: Chapter 8, Problem 8.2, Risk Ratios and Odds Ratios. Write a short narrative of your process, an interpretation of your findings, and write your results. Cut and paste the Case Processing Summary, Crosstabulation, and Risk Estimate tables directly into your document and refer to them in your interpretation.

A5.3: Chapter 8, Problem 8.3, Other Nonparametric Associational Statistics. Write a short narrative of your process, an interpretation of your findings, and write your results. Cut and paste the Case Processing Summary, Crosstabulation, and Symetric Measures tables directly into your document and refer to them in your interpretation.

A5.4: Chapter 8, Problem 8.4, Cross‐Tabulation and Eta. Write a short narrative of your process, an interpretation of your findings, and write your results to include tables. Cut and paste the Case Processing Summary, Crosstabulation, and Directional Measures tables directly into your document and refer to them in your interpretation.

A5.5, Application Problem ‐ Crosstabulation and Chi‐Square. Using the “college student data.sav” and “hsbdata.sav” files, do the following problems. Write a short narrative of your process, an interpretation of your findings, and write your results.

Cut and paste your outputs directly into your document and refer to them in your interpretation.

A5.5a. Write two research questions and two null hypotheses relating to the following pairs of data, run crosstabs and interpret the results of chi‐square and phi (or Cramer’s V), as discussed in Chapter 6 and in the interpretation of Output 8.1 for the following data pairs: 1) “gender” and “marital status” and 2) “age group” and “marital status”. Before beginning the test, recode marital status to BinaryMarital where Single and Divorced (1 & 3) are listed as Single (1) and Married (2) is listed as Married (2). Include Case Processing Summary, Crosstabulation, Chi‐Square Tests, and Symetric Measures tables and refer to them in your interpretation. Include a discussion of relevant differences or similarities. Prior to running the analysis, discuss how the data meets the assumptions and conditions for the tests you are going to conduct. Support your assertion with the appropriate descriptive statistics.

A5.5b. Write two research questions and two null hypotheses relating to the following pairs of data, run crosstabs and interpret the results of chi‐square and phi (or Cramer’s V), as discussed in Chapter 6 and in the interpretation of Output 8.1 for the following data pairs: 1) “mathach” and “calc” and 2) “mathach” and “trig”. Before beginning the test, recode math achievement into two groups HighAch and LowAch using the median score as the dividing point. Include Case Processing Summary, Crosstabulation, Chi‐Square Tests, and Symetric Measures tables and refer to them in your interpretation. Include a discussion of relevant differences or similarities. Prior to running the analysis, discuss how the data meets the assumptions and conditions for the tests you are going to conduct. Support your assertion with the appropriate descriptive statistics.
