the median female agreeableness and the median male agreeableness, according to the Big5 personality test http://personality-testing.info/tests/BIG5.php. Agreeableness is measured on a scale of 1-5 (with 1 being the least agreeable, 5 being the most agreeable. This investigation may be beneficial to those whose looking to hire employees that are going to be more valuable to their business. Pg 306. Studies carried out by psychologists Paul R. Sackett and Philip T. Walmsley of the University of Minnesota, indicate that agreeableness was the second most prized personality trait of those looking to employ. Agreeableness…
In this category, I scored higher on the Internally Focused scale under the first contrasting pair, with a 59. Individuals in who exhibit this trait are immersed deeply in the complexities of their own feelings and thoughts. However, this trait is not very strong for me given that it is 10 points away from the 50th percentile of those who also possess this trait. Significant in this category are the scores for Imaginative/Intuiting and Feeling-Guided, having scored well above the Median on…
III. Identify statistical tools and methods to collect data: A. Identify Appropriate Family and Reason for Selecting it. To analyze A-Cap Corporation’s data, I will use measures of central tendency and distribution. Measure of central tendency is a measure used to describe the mean, median, and mode of a particular set of data while measure of distribution shows the skewness, kurtosis, and develops a hypothesis about a particular set of data. The reason I selected these two measures is that they…
¥ For how many students do you have Verbal Aggressiveness scores? We have Verbal Aggressiveness scores for 59 students. ¥ What is the mean for the entire sample? The mean for the entire sample is 44.0169. ¥ How do you interpret the mean score? When we interpret the mean score, we should look at the minimum and the maximum scores, so we can see the mean are close to each one. In verbal aggressiveness, the minimum is 26 and the maximum is 65, which indicates that the mean around the middle of…
table as ‘With pressure’. Data: For this experiment, the data has been recorded in a table on paper and then entered into a spreadsheet. This was made into two different graphs, box and whisker plot graph and the arrow graph using the website NZ grapher. Analysis: The box and whisker plot graph above displays the minimum, lower quartile, median, upper quartile and maximum of the differences between the first time it takes the individual to write the required sentence (No pressure) and the…
there is no median or mean that can be determined as the numbers are skewed. On the next table for arrest, I believe that a true zero can be identified as many people may have never been arrested as described by Walker (2009). This could be a ratio falling under the central tendency of a mean. I could see a mode also being determined for the arrest variable, but the values would not give a clear understanding of the missing factors. Ordinal and…
skewed towards younger age group. Further, an appropriate graph for ADULTCT, measured at ratio level, is a histogram which can help us understand the shape of the distribution. The histogram displays that the number of adults in the household is positively skewed, as significant amount of data lies at the lower end of the graph. This signifies that majority of the respondents have two to three adults in the household. Descriptive Analysis We calculated descriptive statistics for both the…
In round one the respondent’s median number of agreements was 5.5 from a total of 133 responses, while in the second round the mean was 3 from a total of 57 responses. These showed that half the questions had more than 5.5 agreements each, and similarly in the second round Delphi there were 3 agreements each. However, considering the difference in the number of respondents i.e.14 in round one and 6 in round two, the number of respondents who agreed with questions asked, increased to a fourth…
They differ in many aspects like the role assigned to them in the research and in the type of measures that can be applied to them. Measures in descriptive statistics to describe the data set under investigation include measures of central tendency and measures of variability. A measure of central tendency is a single value that attempts to describe a set of data by identifying the central position. The measures of central tendency include mean, median and mode. The mean is equal to the sum of…
chromatography. The Rf values for the dyes of the blue Skittles are .498, .488, .542, .526, and .441. The statistics for these numbers are .499 for the mean, .498 for the median, no mode, .0389 for the standard deviation, and .499 ± .0389 for the best answer. The Rf values for the dyes of the green skittles are .621, .455, .628, .590, and .397. The statistics for these numbers are .538 for the mean, .590 for the median, no mode, .105 for the standard deviation, and .538 ± .105 for the best…
