Question

QUESTION 1 1. The standard normal distribution is commonly used to solve organizational problems because it is based upon the area under the normal curve. Develop a data set of 12 sample values from a population and calculate the mean and standard deviation of that sample data set. Once you have done so, develop three questions for your classmates to determine the area under the curve. For example, suppose a data set has a mean of 62 and a standard deviation of 28. One question might be: what is the area under the curve from a value of 50 to a value of 69? Another question might be: what is the area under the curve from a value of 75 to a value of 90? PAGES 2-7 ARE EXAMPLES FOR QUESTION 2 A proper research survey will gather data so that the researcher can apply numbers to them and then calculate the mean, median, and standard deviation. In the survey below, each response has an assigned value. For example, a "strongly disagree" is assigned a value of 1. A "disagree" value would receive a value of 2, and so forth. Thus each question will have a mean, median, and standard deviation. Notice that these are not "yes/no" questions. Yes/no questions do not furnish insight so they are not used in surveys. You could ask questions in class style. This style is particularly good for gathering demographic data. For example: My annual household income is (select one): Employee survey XYZ Widget Company In an effort to continually improve the working environment for employees, XYZ Widget Company is seeking feedback on working hours that may impact the professional and personal lives of our valued employees. Your participation in the survey is completely voluntary and anonymous. Your participation in the survey and the survey results will be kept confidential throughout the survey process. Please respond to each statement below by selecting only one of the choices. When the survey is complete, please fold it in half and place it in the survey box located at the reception desk in the main lobby. Please do not put your name or any other identifying information on the survey form. Thanks for your participation in the survey. RESEARCH QUESTION: Do employees perceive the expectation to work hours longer than those prescribed in their job descriptions? \$16,000 - 20,000 \$21,000 - 25,000 \$26,000 - 30,000 \$31,000 - 35,000 \$36,000 - 40,000 \$41,000- 45,000 When using class questions, be sure that each class is the same interval as the other classes. Also make sure that the classes do not cross one another. 1. I have been in my current position for: 1 2 3 4 5 Less than 1 year One to three years Four to Six years Seven to nine years Ten or more years ? ? ? ? ? ___________________________________________________________________ 2. I consider myself to be: 1 2 3 4 5 A worker A supervisor A manager A director An executive ? ? ? ? ? ___________________________________________________________________ 3. My job description was provided to me when I was hired: 1 2 3 4 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither disagree nor agree Agree Strongly Agree ? ? ? ? ? 4. I am currently performing tasks beyond my job description: 1 2 3 4 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither disagree nor agree Agree Strongly Agree ? ? ? ? ? ___________________________________________________________________ 5. My required working hours were provided to me when I was hired: 1 2 3 4 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither disagree nor agree Agree Strongly Agree ? ? ? ? ? ___________________________________________________________________ 6. I am currently working longer than my required working hours: 1 2 3 4 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither disagree nor agree Agree Strongly Agree ? ? ? ? ? 7. My boss expects me to perform tasks beyond my job description: 1 2 3 4 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither disagree nor agree Agree Strongly Agree ? ? ? ? ? ___________________________________________________________________ 8. My boss expects me to work hours beyond my required working hours: 1 2 3 4 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither disagree nor agree Agree Strongly Agree ? ? ? ? ? ___________________________________________________________________ 9. The company provides me with the proper equipment to complete my work during the working hours described in my job description: 1 2 3 4 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither disagree nor agree Agree Strongly Agree ? ? ? ? ? 10. I am properly compensated for working beyond my required working hours: 1 2 3 4 5 Strongly Disagree Disagree Neither disagree nor agree Agree Strongly Agree ? ? ? ? ? QUESTION 2 2. After reviewing the example survey questions posted, develop your own set of 5 to 7 survey questions you would use to gather information about a problem in your organization. Your questions should have a blend of questions that would result in nominal level, ordinal level, interval level, and ratio level data.
