Along with the discussion, this is the major component of the report and you will be assessed on your ability to report the statistical procedures. Thus, here you need to present the results of the study only present and describe them; there should be no interpretation of the data at this point.
There are really two parts to the results section.
In the first, you should present the descriptive statistics for all variables in your analyses. Include key descriptives such as means, standard deviations, and min/max values. Briefly describe what you find. As a rule of thumb, if you include a variable in your analyses (i.e. regression, or ANOVA, or whatever), you should provide the descriptive statistics as well.
In the second part, you will present the analyses. Make sure that these results are directly linked with your hypotheses (e.g., Multiple regression analyses were conducted to test It was found that …).
As the trimester progresses, you will become familiar with the specific analyses that you will be conducting to answer these questions:
Do students perform better in a double learning intervention, a test-based learning intervention, or a traditional class?
Use the provided SPSS data file to perform your analyses to determine whether overall performance differs across our three groups.
Is class performance predicted by Test anxiety and Academic Self efficacy?
Use the provided SPSS data file to perform to perform the analyses to determine whether Test anxiety and Academic Self efficacy are statistically significant predictors of class performance. You will need to consider both the combined and unique contributions of the two variables for predicting course grade.
NOTE 1: For each analysis you are required to report the results in the conventional manner (refer to the lab manual/answers provided in class or on Cloud Deakin, as well as the example lab report on CloudDeakin for illustrative examples of how to report the various statistical tests in APA format).
NOTE 2: the SPSS data file has been put on CloudDeakin. Your task is to perform appropriate analyses in order to address the research questions, and then interpret and report these analyses correctly. SYNTAX FOR YOUR ANALYSES MUST BE PROVIDED WITH YOUR SUBMISSION. Syntax can be submitted as an appendix to you lab report, or as a separate file (either is fine). The format of the syntax can be a .sps, or you can copy-paste the syntax into a .dox OR .pdf.
