b)

Measures of various procedures that are known as statistical tests

c)

Measures of common statistics used in quantitative research

d)

All of the above

The answer for question 1 is INCORRECT.


The correct answer was: Measures of central tendency and measures of dispersion

2. What does inferential statistics refer to?

a)

Statistical tests that are used in inferential studies

b)

A type of statistical package that researchers adopt in any kind of quantitative study

c)

Diverse means for calculating statistics, commonly used in randomised controlled trials

d)
Various procedures commonly referred to as statistical tests
The answer for question 2 is INCORRECT.
The correct answer was: Various procedures commonly referred to as statistical tests

3. When do we use ANOVA for our data analysis?


Hint
a)

When there are two or more variables that we wish to find correlations between

b)

When there are two or more dependent variables, each of which is measured on an interval or ratio scale

c)

When we want to compare two means with each other in order to establish if there is a statistically significant difference between them

d)
When we want to compare the means of three of more sets of scores to determine if there are statistically significant differences between them
The answer for question 3 is CORRECT.

4. When do we use a chi-square test?


Hint
a)

When statistical significance of our research findings is closely examined for chi-square results

b)

When we want to assess the degree to which scores for a subset of variables predict scores for another variable in the set

c)

When the level of measurement is nominal and the data thus consist of frequency counts for categories with different names

All of the above
The answer for question 4 is INCORRECT.
The correct answer was: When the level of measurement is nominal and the data thus consist of frequency counts for categories with different
names

5. What does correlation coefficient refer to?
