problems related to ANOVA and regression.
A researcher wants to know if there is a relationship between the person's highest level of education (IV) and differences in life satisfaction (DV). She places her subjects into four samples, i.e., 1) less than a high school degree, 2) high school graduate, 3) some college, or 4) college degree. She creates a life satisfaction survey using a 4point ordinal scale.
1. Would the KruskalWallis be an appropriate statistical process to test this Research problem (RQ)? Please describe your answer.
2. When would you use the ChiSquare test rather than the OneWay Anova?
For items 3 to 4: State a research hypothesis that can be tested by:
3. Pearson Correlation.
4. Simple Regression.
5. If you have multiple regression output with two independent variables and the RSquare is .9682, what does the RSquare indicate?
6. The results of your correlation analysis show that you have a correlation of +.9362 between salary and age. What three statements can you make about the relationship between the variables?
7. If the IV requires you to classify students by their college major (e.g., accounting, human resources, health services, financial management, etc.), what kind of measurement scale do you have?

The above, item 8, ANOVA test displays the results of three different seminars (IV) each designed to improve selfconcept (DV). From the data provided, were any of the seminars more effective than any of the others in improving selfconcept? Select the best answer from the list that follows:
i. Yes, all three seminars enhanced selfconcept.
ii. No, there were no differences in the effectiveness of any of the seminars on improving selfconcept.
iii. Yes, one of the seminars was significantly more effective than the other two.
iv. None of the above (i.e., a, b, c) is accurate.
9. A researcher wants to collect data about the study habits of sophomores at Harmond University. From the sophomore class of 2,300 students, she wants to collect a sample of 70 students. Which of the following sampling methods will yield the most representative sample?
a. at random selecting 70 sophomores entering the university's main library on a randomly selected evening.
b. Selecting the 70 sophomores whose grade point averages (GPA) fall closest to the mean GPA of the sophomore class.
c. handover each sophomore a number and then randomly generating 70 numbers from that list.
d. at random selecting 70 sophomores who are members of college fraternities.
