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 4-point ordinal scale. 

1. Would the Kruskal-Wallis be an appropriate statistical process to test this Research problem (RQ)?  Please describe your answer.

2. When would you use the Chi-Square test rather than the One-Way 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 R-Square is .9682, what does the R-Square 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?
