Hi Ruth,I’m interested in finding the response to week2 DDBA 8307 from walden university. however, there are two components: 1. the exemplar provided in the question, and 2. The SPSS data sheet which will do all of the statistic work. Can you help to guide on this so I don’t want to plagiarize the answer. This work needs to be completed before 5:00pm todayThanks

Scales of Measurement

Type text here. Discuss the implications of “scales of measurement” in quantitative

research. Be sure to use a minimum of two citations to support your position(s). Be sure to

review the “Scales of Measurement” media from Week 1. This section should be no more than

two paragraphs.

Research Question

What are the means, standard deviations, frequencies, and percentages of the Lesson 21

Exercise File variables?

Presentation of Findings

I analyzed data from Lesson 21 Exercise File 4. In this section, I present descriptive

statistics for the study quantitative and qualitative variables. Appropriate APA tables and figures

accompany the analysis5.

Descriptive Statistics6

Descriptive statistics were run for the quantitative and qualitative variables in the Week 1

Assignment data set. Table 1 depicts the means and standard deviations for the quantitative data.

Figure 1 depicts a histogram for the GPA variable. Table 2 depicts the frequencies and

percentages for the qualitative (categorical) data. Figure 2 depicts a pie chart for the ethnic

variable. Appendix 1 depicts the SPSS output.

4

Insert the appropriate file name.

The tables and figures from your SPSS output will need to be copied and pasted in the appropriate location.

6

Detailed information can be found in Lesson 20, “Univariate Descriptive Statistics for Qualitative Variables,” and

Lesson 21, “Univariate Descriptive Statistics for Quantitative Variables,” in the Green and Salkind text.

This is an example of an APA-formatted descriptive statistics table. Refer to Sections 5.01-5.19, in the APA

Manual for detailed information on APA tables. The descriptive statistics table here includes the appropriate

information derived from the SPSS output that is to be pasted as an appendix. Do not split tables across pages.

Note: The numbers in the SPSS output presented here are fictitious numbers and do not represent correct

numbers in the data set you will use for this application.

You would simply add rows to the table to accommodate the variables you have used in the analysis (i.e., variable

3, variable 4, etc.). Hint: Use the Microsoft Word Table feature.

Recall from Lesson 20, “Univariate Descriptive Statistics for Qualitative Variables” (Green & Salkind, 2017),

frequencies and percentages are reported for qualitative (nominal) variables. Note: Frequency and percentages

are the only columns to be included.

Assignment: SPSS – Descriptive Statistics

For this Assignment, you will use SPSS (PASW) software and learn to properly manipulate

data according to APA requirements. This is an important skill and will be a major factor in

future Assignments in this course, as well as in your Doctoral Study.

To prepare for this Assignment, review the Week 2 Assignment Exemplar document

provided in the week’s Resources, and download the Week 2 Assignment Template. Be sure

to review the footnotes, as they provide helpful information. Also, review Lessons 20 and 21

in the Green and Salkind (2017) text, as well as the Copying and Pasting SPSS Output Into

Word document, located in this week’s Resources. Download and use the Week 2

Assignment Dataset file for this Assignment. Keep in mind that you cannot draw conclusions

using descriptive statistics without further testing (inferential statistics). Inferential statistics

(e.g., t-tests, ANOVA, correlation, regression, etc.) will be covered in later weeks.

By Day 7

Submit an application of descriptive statistics within a quantitative business research context

that follows the Week 2 Assignment Template. Your application must include the following:

An explanation of the implications of “Scales of Measurement” in quantitative research

A properly stated research question

A “Presentation of Findings” section, to include appropriate descriptive statistics for nominal

(categorical/qualitative) and scale (ordinal, interval, and ratio) data using appropriately

formatted APA table(s)

One appropriate graph for a nominal variable (e.g., pie chart) and one appropriate graph for

scale (quantitative) variable (e.g., histogram)

An Appendix containing the SPSS output (see the Week 2 Assignment Exemplar)

Correct APA formatting, including in-text citations and a separate References page where

appropriate

Please Note: You will cut and paste the appropriate SPSS output into the Appendix. The SPSS

output is not in APA format, so you will need to type the information from the SPSS output

to the appropriate sections of the APA table. You must use the Week 2 Assignment Template

to complete this Assignment. Also, refer to the Week 2 Assignment Rubric for specific

grading elements and criteria. Your Instructor will use this rubric to assess your work.
