Imagine a researcher is interested in examining the psychological impact of principals’ perceived conflict management style on teachers’ productivity. In this case, the researcher is interested in the relationships among teachers’ self-esteem, how teachers perceive their principals’conflict management style, and teachers’ productivity in a convenience sample of 40 teachers. These teachers completed a survey including a number of demographic questions as well as measures to assess perceived principals’ conflict management style, teacher’s self-esteem, and productivity. Below are the demographic questions and participants’ responses. Please use these data to complete the questions below (these data have already been entered in a SPSS file; see the note below the data table).

What is your gender (M = male, F = female)? What is your age (in years)? How long have you been teaching (in years)? What topic do you teach (M = math, S = science, A = art, FL = foreign language)? How many students are in your class?

Download the SPSS data set:teachersurvey.sav. Not all of the variables in that SPSS file will be used for this assignment.

Part of the goal of this activity is to explore the various tools under the ANALYZE tab in SPSS, the more exploring the more comfortable it will become.

In this SPSS assignment, use the tools presented in Gravetter and Wallnau (2013) Chapters 3 and 4 to describe the central tendency and variability of the scores. Chapter 7 in George and Mallery (2014) may be helpful in negotiating SPSS for this assignment. The following video may also be helpful:

Split the file by gender. Calculate the mean and standard deviation of age and number of years teaching (experience)for males and females. Hint: use Explore found under the ANALSYS =>Descriptivestabs. Age and Experience will be the dependent variable and Gender will be the factor.

Compute the mean, median, and mode for number of students in the class(class size). What value is the most representative measure of the central tendency for this variable and why?

Calculate the range of number of years teaching (experience).What does this information indicate about the years of experience?

4. Using the data for age, change one score to 22. Please identify the score chosen to change. Calculate the new mean for the variable. Explain how and why the mean changed and the standard deviation of age.Note: beforethe data set (teachersurvey.sav) is saved, be sure to change the age back to its original number.

5. Create a frequency distribution graph for topics taught.

What is the most appropriate measure of central tendency?

What is the appropriated graphical representation of the frequency distribution?
