Computer Assignment \#2
\end{center}
Use your old data set from Computer Assignment \#1 in (a), (b), and
(c):
\bigskip
a) Begin by listing the contents of your SYSTAT file for the benefit
of the grader.
\bigskip
b) From the STATISTICS menu, use the T-TEST command to carry out two
paired t-tests: for the pennies versus dimes within room 1 and for
pennies versus dimes within room 2 (thus, treat pennies and dimes as
if matched by case).
\bigskip
c) From the STATISTICS menu, use the T-TEST command to carry out two
two-independent sample t-tests: use pennies for room 1 versus room 2
and dimes for room 1 versus room 2 (thus, rooms are treated as
independent samples).
\bigskip
The data to be used in (d) through (h) are on 170 entering freshman
at a large public university, and is available from the web site:
\bigskip
http://cda.psych.uiuc.edu/psych\_406\_material/P406data.syd
\bigskip
The data set involves five variables: self-reported SAT verbal score
(SATV), self-reported SAT math score (SATM), actual SAT verbal score
(RSATV), sex (SEX), and high school grade point average (HSGPA). The
three SAT scores are given as two digits (the usual 0 could be added
at the end of each), sex involves a ``one'' sex and a ``zero'' sex,
and HSGPA is given as one of nine levels (from 0 to 8). You will
need to define for yourself a variable describing the difference
between the actual SAT verbal score and the reported SAT verbal
score (SATVDIFF).
\bigskip
d) Using the STATISTICS menu, obtain all the usual descriptive
statistics for your data set --- include SATVDIFF.
\bigskip
e) Using the CORRELATIONS menu, obtain the simple Pearson
product-moment correlations between all the variables (including
SATVDIFF).
\bigskip
f) Using the REGRESSION menu, carry out \emph{simple} regression
analyses between SATVDIFF and each of the variables SATM, SEX, and
HSGPA. Interpret.
\bigskip
g) Carry out a multiple regression analysis (using REGRESSION)
predicting SATVDIFF from SATM, SEX, and HSGPA. Save the residuals
and list these along with leverages, studentized residuals, Cook's D
values, and the standard error of the predicted values. Interpret.
\bigskip
h) Carry out a stepwise regression (using REGRESSION) in predicting
SATVDIFF from SATM, SEX, and HSGPA, and interpret.
