**Question**

Question;To carry out a validation study, an I/O psychologist is developing a regression equation from data collected from those hired two years ago. Specifically, the I/O psychologist is examining the relationship between extraversion, cognitive skills, and communication ability on salesperformance (the dependent measure). The data are given in the resource documentCurrently, the same I/O psychologist must make a decision about which two applicants to hirefor newly-created sales positions. There are 10 applicants for the two positions, who completedquantitative measures on the same predictors above.In this assignment, you will perform the multiple regression analysis on the data from those hiredtwo years ago. You will then use that information to make decisions regarding which of thecurrent candidates should be hired..1. Enter variables using the stepwise procedure.2. Interpret the results and write the regression equation using the following format:Y = (b1 x X1) + (b2 x X2) + (b3 x X3) + a, where a is the intercept, and the bs are regressioncoefficients.1. In a statement of 300-400 words, describe what the data indicate about employee performanceand coaching needs. Include the following in the statement:2. A discussion of which of these employees may need coaching and which are performing atacceptable levels.State the regression equation you wrote above, and use the equation computed and the dataobtained from those hired two years ago to make a decision about which two individuals shouldbe offered the current positions. Justify your decision in a statement of 300-400 words.Quantitative Measures DataTo carry out a validation study, an I/O psychologist is developing a regression equation fromdata collected from those hired two years ago.
