    Answer: _________________________________


    21. Dr. Smith has a data set with two variables that allow him to test the hypothesis that students who get along with their parents are less likely to engage in deviant activities, such as skipping school or cheating on a test.  His independent variable is called GETALONG (get along with parents) and is coded as follows:


                                  0 ‘never’

                                  1 ‘not often’

                                  2 ‘some of the time’

                                  3 ‘often’

                                  4 ‘most of the time’

              Andrew’s first dependent variable is called CHEAT (cheat on a test) and is coded as follows:


                                  0 ‘never’

                                  1 ‘before but not in the last year’

                                  2 ‘few times per year’

                                  3 ‘1-2 times per month’

                                  4 ‘1-2 times per week’

                                  5 ‘everyday’




Dr. Smith decides to test the hypothesis that students who get along with their parents more often are less likely to cheat on a test.  He wants to use a crosstab table to do this.  What test of association should he request from SPSS?


(a)  lambda


(b)  gamma


(c)  chi square


(d)  Pearson’s rcorrelation


(e)  epsilon




Answer: ___________________________________




22. Dr. Smith also tests a hypothesis that predicts girls are more likely than boys to be involved in extracurricular activities.  His independent variable, GENDER, is coded 1 ‘male’ 2 ‘female.’  His dependent variable, EXTRA, is coded as 1 ‘yes, involved’ 2 ‘no, not involved.’  Again, Andrew requests a crosstab table in SPSS to test this hypothesis.  What measure of association should he request?


a) lambda


b) gamma


c) epsilon


d) cumulative percent


e) regression coefficient

                 TABLE 4:  Relationship between Drinking and Missing Class










– Amanda tests the relationship between number of drinks it typically takes to get drunk with how often a respondent misses class as a result of drinking.  She hypothesizes that people who report a higher number of drinks to get drunk will likely miss classes more often than those who report a lower number of drinks to get drunk.  Table 4 shows the results of her analysis.  What percent of those who report 7 or more drinks to get drunk miss class 2 times or more?


                              (a)  100%                                 (d)  52.2%

                              (b)  8.6%                                  (e)  0%
