Short answer Question 1
To evaluate your ability to correctly identify, as well as interpret and/or provide comments on survey design .
A questionnaire is a very convenient way of collecting information from a large number of people within a period of time. Hence, the design of the questionnaire is of utmost importance to ensure accurate data is collected so that the results are interpretable and generalisable.
1.Short answer Question 1
(a) Identify and explain the scales of measurement of two variables (Variable 1 = gender; and Variable 2 =Mobile Phone Dependence)
2. Short answer Question 2
(a) Identify the internal reliability of the Toronto Empathy Questionnaire (TEQ) that was used to measure empathy?
(b) Critically rate the internal reliability of the Toronto Empathy Questionnaire (TEQ) (poor, satisfactory, good, very good, or excellent)?
(c) Identify the number of questions present in the Toronto Empathy Questionnaire (TEQ)?
(d) Critically reflect on why would you assess the internal reliability of a questionnaire?
3. Short answer Question 3
(a) How would you state the null hypothesis?
(b) What would be the research (or alternate) hypothesis?
(c) Assuming that all assumptions are met, identify what test would be most appropriate to examine the relationship (correlation) between empathy and mobile phone dependence levels? Please provide a rationale for your answer.
(d) Provide 2 examples of non-parametric tests covered in Workshop 3
4. Short answer Question 4
(a) Identify the correlation coefficient (r-value) of the relationship between mobile phone dependence and the Altruism empathy subscale?
(b) Critically analyse if the obtained correlation coefficient (r-value) significant?
(c) Critically analyse if the obtained correlation coefficient (r) value is considered small, medium, or large?
(d) Critically analyse if the correlation between mobile phone dependence and the Altruism empathy subscale is positive or negative?
