Compute z-scores for variables in SPSS

How to use SPSS to compute z-scores for a variable. Choose one of two available methods. This resource from the "SPSS Tutorial Series" is contributed to the statstutor Community project by Christine Pereira, Brunel University and reviewed by Tim Sparks, Coventry University. It was developed with sigma resource development funding.

Confidence Intervals and Error Bars in SPSS

A short video tutorial to demonstrate how to calculate confidence intervals and error bars using SPSS. This resource has been made available under a Creative Commons licence by Kristian Evans, Swansea University.

Interpret SPSS output for a paired t-test

How to interpret SPSS output for a paired t-test. Includes the p-value and confidence intervals for the mean difference. This resource from the "SPSS Tutorial Series" is contributed to the statstutor Community project by Christine Pereira, Brunel University and reviewed by Jonathan Gillard, Cardiff University. It was developed with sigma resource development funding.

Interpret SPSS output for an independent t-test

How to interpret SPSS output for an independent t-test (also known as a two-sample t-test). Includes Levene's test for homogeneity of variance, p-value and confidence intervals for the mean difference. This resource from the "SPSS Tutorial Series" is contributed to the statstutor Community project by Christine Pereira, Brunel University and reviewed by Jonathan Gillard, Cardiff University. It was developed with sigma resource development funding.

### 04. Tests and Quizzes (4)

Business Statistics 4 - Numbas

5 questions. 1. Finding the confidence interval at either 90%, 95% or 99% for the mean given the mean and standard deviation of a sample. The population variance is not given and so the t test has to be used. Various scenarios are included. 2. Finding the confidence interval at either 90%, 95% or 99% for the mean given the mean of a sample. The population variance is given and so the z values are used. Various scenarios are included. 3. Provided with information on a sample with sample mean and standard deviation, but no information on the population variance, use the t test to either accept or reject a given null hypothesis. 4. Provided with information on a sample with sample mean and known population variance, use the z test to either accept or reject a given null hypothesis. 5. Given two sets of data, sample mean and sample standard deviation, on performance on the same task, make a decision as to whether or not the mean times differ. Population variance not given, so the t test has to be used in conjunction with the pooled sample standard deviation. Link to use of t tables and p-values in Show steps.
