Descriptive Stats-Additions, Corrections, and Additions

Hi Martin!
Here is the part I need your help, and I will also add the feedback below.

1) Compute the high scores on the RCMAS that would correspond to an extremely low score.
2) Demonstrate a conceptual understanding of z-scores in a write up.
3) Calculate the high and low score values
**Include an interpretation of results within the write up.

Assignment 2: Final Project

Make necessary corrections to your work on the final project for the first three weeks based on your facilitator's feedback and write: (See above)

A comprehensive paragraph describing the participants in the study.
A paragraph describing the major dependent variable of interest.
Save the SPSS data file.

Name your file: SU_PSY2008_W4_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.sav.

Write your paragraph in a Microsoft Word document.

Name your document: SU_PSY2008_W4_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.

**only two docs are needed..............

I believe most of the info is allready in the docs, mainly need the write ups and interpretations....I think. Double check for me, please (and thank you!). If you need anything else, please do not hesitate to send me a note and I will be sticking close to the computer! The files are attached. Thanks,

This gives us the ...
