SPSS Analysis Report

Problem Statement: Provide a brief description on the topic, why you chose this topic, why this topic is important to address. (1 Paragraph)
Information: Using bullet points and written in a single full sentence for a total of 6 sentences address:
o Purpose: The purpose of this survey was to….. (ie. Identification of knowledge gap? To better understand a unique cultural norm? etc Polit and Beck Book- pgs 94-101)
o Study Methods:
 Target Population/Study Participants (Hint- it should be population you surveyed)
 Eligibility Criteria for Participants (Hint- this should be based on your target population)
o Sampling:
 Sampling Plan (Polit and Beck Book- pgs 162-167)
 Sample Size (ie. How many surveys did you send out? How many did you receive back? What percentage was returned?)
o Limitations and Sampling Bias (Hint: This will be heavily influenced by your sampling plan. Polit and Beck Book- pgs152-155)
Data and Participant Protection: Briefly explain the procedure for protecting survey participants and summarize methods employed to preserve the integrity of the data set (1 paragraph) (Polit and Beck Chapter 5)

Question #1 (repeat this process for each survey question)
Descriptive Analyses: You will have two unique output analyses! (Here is an example of one unique output)
Graph/Chart: You will have two unique graphs/charts! : (Here is an example of one unique graph/chart)

Question # Purpose of Survey Question Type of Data Collected (scale, ordinal, nominal) Analysis Run on Data Raw Results of Analysis Review of Literature on this Topic How Do My Results Compare to Literature What Does the Comparison to Literature Suggest about My Results or Population
Why did you ask this question? List a min. of 2 for each survey question. eg “16% of the population agreed while 80% disagreed—4% did not answer the question”
Discuss what literature says on this type of data or subject/ topic. Should include a min. of 1-2 references for each question State the obvious: Discuss in what way your data is similar, different, in-line, or completely unique in 2 or 3 sentences. Discussion: In this section you will compare “norms” found in literature to your findings and then draw a conclusion as to why your data is similar, different, etc. Questions you need to ask yourself: What does this suggest about your population or findings? Is my population unique? Are my results expected or are they indicative of something new or an anomaly? Why? Are there any gaps in relationships or themes? Discussion for each survey question should be 2-5 sentences long.
(Example)1 To determine the age ranges of my participants Ordinal Percentage;
Median 1). 10% of participants were <25 years old; 65% of participants were between the ages of 25-49 years old; 25% of participants were over the age of 50 2). Median age 37. Range: 24-67 years old Average age of graduate students is 43 (random stats.com) The majority of my participants were in between the ages of 25-49 years old. This is in line with the literature as the average graduate student is 43. The age mix of my participants were similar for the average age of a typical graduate student. This suggests that the participation mix sampled was an appropriate age range for the targeted population. Repeat the above format for each of your 8 Survey Questions Wisdom- Here you will evaluate the overall effectiveness of your electronic survey. This section should be a minimum of 3-4 paragraphs (approximately 1 page long), be written in discussion format (ie not bullet points) and address each of these questions: 1. How would you rate the overall quality of the data you collected? (see links in ‘Readings and Content’) 2. Describe any missing data and explain it’s absence. 3. Did you collect the type of data you wanted? 4. Were your questions worded clearly? 5. Did you provide enough (or the right) options to your participants to answer your questions well? 6. Were your options worded clearly? 7. Explain how you would revise the electronic survey to improve the design, clarification of ideas, and overall effectiveness. 8. Based on the results you g
