SPSS-T-tests projects

Hi Martin!

Thanks for your help last week on the project in PPt; I completed each slide as I needed, according to the Prof's instructions.

This week, I will need some help with t-tests in the SPSS, and the seperate doc in Word to interpret the results. The following is the exact assignment, and what I will need help with on this part of the assignment.

Assignment 1: A T-Test

You are provided with the heights of male and female participants:

Male/
Female

64.00/
67.00

72.00/
62.00

71.00/
61.00

71.00/
61.00

69.00/
65.00

67.00/
64.00

69.00/
63.00

75.00/
64.00

1). Using the above database, compute a t-test comparing males' and females' heights. You must determine which type of t-test to compute.

2). Write a short interpretation of the results.

Save and submit the SPSS output file to your inbox.

Name your file: SU_PSY2008_W6_A1_LastName_FirstInitial.spv.

Write your interpretation in a Microsoft Word document.

Name your document: SU_PSY2008_W6_A1_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.

Cite sources using the APA format on a separate page.

SPSS Independent Samples t-test Guide
The Independent Samples t-test compares the means of two independent groups (ie. Male and Female) for a variable such as height.
We must make the following assumptions regarding these groups: the variables being compared in the two groups are normally distributed (In SPSS, we use a Q-Q plot to test for normal distribution); The two groups, Male and Female have reasonably equal variances for the variables being compared (In SPSS, as part of the Independent Samples t-test, "Levene's Test for Equality ...
