Working in the SPSS Assignment 1 document, explore the basics of SPSS and create a data set. Refer to the video tutorial in the module resources for specific instruction regarding how to enter data in SPSS.
1) Describe a research question in psychology that interests you. Also, state a hypothesis for an experiment related to your research question.
2) How might you test your hypothesis? Briefly describe the procedure you would use and be sure to clearly discuss the independent variable(s) and dependent variable(s).
3a) In SPSS, enter hypothetical data for at least 15 participants. To do this, you will first need to create the variables in the “Variable View.” You will then need to enter the data in the “Data View.” When entering your hypothetical data, be sure to:
- Name each variable
- Use a label to provide more detail about each variable
- Enter values for your variable conditions
3b) Provide an explanation for each of your variables. More specifically, which variable is the IV, and which is the DV? How would the variables be measured? How should the values be interpreted? For example, if your variable values are 1, 2, or 3, what do each of those numbers represent?
