Be on time & Original work


Data Attached


Earlier this week, you practiced using MANOVA models with SPSS and, ideally, used the Collaboration Lab to ask, answer, and otherwise address any questions you had. In this Assignment, you apply what you learned to answer a social research question using MANOVA.

To prepare

  • Review the datasets provided. (ATTACHED)
  • Construct a research question based on one of those datasets.
  • Pay attention to the assumptions of this test, and ask, “Does it make sense to interpret the mean of this dependent variable?”

The Assignment

Use SPSS to answer the research question you constructed. Then, compose a 1- to 2-paragraph analysis in APA format in which you answer the following questions:

  1. What is the null hypothesis for your question?
  2. What research design(s) would align with this question?
  3. What dependent variable was used and how is it measured?
  4. What independent variable is used and how is it measured?
  5. If you found significance, what is the strength of the effect?
  6. What is the answer to your research question?
  7. What are the possible implications of social change?

Be sure to include your data output with your analysis for an excellent APA-compliant write-up of a 6X3 MANOVA.


Assignment 2: Article Critique


The practice of quantitative research not only involves statistical calculations and formulas but also involves the understanding of statistical techniques related to real-world applications. You might not become a quantitative researcher nor use statistical methods in your profession but as a consumer, citizen, and scholar-practitioner, it will be important for you to become a critical consumer of research, which will empower you to read, interpret, and evaluate the strength of claims made in scholarly material and daily news.

For this Assignment, you will critically evaluate a scholarly article related to MANOVA.

To prepare

  • Search the  Library for a quantitative article that applies MANOVA.

The Assignment (You find the Article)

Write a 2- -page critique (Not including title & ref page) of the research you found in the  Library that includes responses to the following prompts: (USE SUBHEADINGS)

  • Why did the authors select MANOVA in the research?
  • Do you think this test was the most appropriate choice? Why or why not?
  • Did the authors display the results in a figure or table?
  • Does the results table stand alone? In other words, are you able to interpret the study from it? Why or why not?
