Question

Question;A Survey of 50 ParentsIn January ?08, fifty elementary school parents of a county school district were surveyed regarding their satisfaction with a free after-school day care program. The parents filled out the survey on after the end of the fall semester (in January ?08). In June ?08, the parents were telephoned and resurveyed and were asked to rate their overall satisfaction again.Variable Position Label Measurement Levelid 1 ID Scale Participant ID numberSafety 2 Safety of Children Scale On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the safety of the environment for the children?Education 3 Educational Activities Scale On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your satisfaction with the educational activities?Social 4 Social Activities Scale On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your satisfaction with the social activities?Physical 5 Physical Activities Scale On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your satisfaction with the physical activities (sports, dance, etc.)?Newstudent 6 Type of Student Ordinal 0 = new student 1 = returning studentUsage 7 Usage Level Scale What percent of the school semester is your child in the day care program?Osatjan 8 Overall Satisfaction in January Scale On a scale of 1 to 7, rate your overall satisfaction with the day care program.Osatjun 9 Overall Satisfaction in June Scale On a scale of 1 to 7, rate your overall satisfaction with the day care program.Title1 10 Receives Title 1 Free Lunch Nominal Does your child receive a free lunch?0 = No, 1 = YesFamily 11 Number of Parents Nominal 0 = One Parent/Guardian, 1 = 2 Parents/GuardiansChildren 12 Number of Children in School Nominal 1 = One Child, 2 = Two Children, 3 = Three or moreVariables in the working fileFor each research question, describe in your Microsoft Word document the application of the seven steps of the hypothesis testing model.Step 1: State the hypothesis (null and alternate).Step 2: State your alpha (unless requested otherwise, this is always set to alpha =.05).Step 3: Collect the data (use one of the data sets).Step 4: Calculate your statistic and p-value (this is where you run spss and examine your output files).Step 5: Retain or reject the null hypothesis. (This is where you report the results of your analyses t (df) = t-value, p = sig. level.)Step 6: Assess the Risk of Type I and Type II Error. (Did the data meet the assumptions of the statistic, effect size, and sample size?)Step 7: State your results in APA style and format.Application 1Question 1: How does this school compare to the district?s figures on providing services to new students?The district published a report that, on average, elementary schools provide about 60% of day care programs for new students. Is this school?s percent of services provided different than the district average?1. Use Select Cases to choose new students (Newstudent = 0).2. Run a single sample t-test using Usage as the dependent variable, and 60.0 as the test value.3. Report the descriptive statistics, assumptions tests, as well as tests of statistical significance.Question 2: Is there a difference between new students and returning students in parents overall satisfaction with day care services as rated in January?1. Run an Independent Samples t-test.2. Use New student as the independent variable.3. Use Overall Satisfaction in January (Osatjan) as the dependent variable.4. Report the descriptive statistics, assumptions tests, as well as tests of statistical significance.Question 3: Has parent satisfaction with day care services changed since the January survey?1. Run the Paired Samples t-test.2. Use Overall Satisfaction in January and Overall Satisfaction in June as the variable pair.3. Report the descriptive statistics, assumptions tests, as well as tests of statistical significance.
