Data

• The measurements obtained in a research


study are called the data.
• The goal of statistics is to help researchers
organize and interpret the data.

Population

The entire group of individuals is called the


population.
For example, a researcher may be interested in the
relation between class size (variable 1) and academic
performance (variable 2) for the population of third-
grade children.

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

10

Sample

Usually populations are so large


that a researcher cannot
examine the entire group.
Therefore, a sample is
selected to represent the
population in a research
study. The goal is to use the
results obtained from the
sample to help answer
questions about the population.

Real Limits
• To define the units for a continuous variable, a researcher
must use real limits which are boundaries located
exactly half-way between adjacent categories.

• Contoh
Selang 11 - 20, 21 - 30 ,31 - 40.
nilai real limits adalah 20.5 (lower limit),
30.5 (upper limit)

Variables

• A variable is a characteristic or condition that


can change or take on different values.
• Most research begins with a general question about
the relationship between two variables for a specific
group of individuals. (eg: Male and Female, x&y)

Types of Variables
Variables can be classified as discrete or
continuous.
CONTINUOUS
DISCRETE
continuous variables
Discrete variables (such as time or
(such as class size) weight) are infinitely
consist of indivisible divisible into
categories whatever units a
researcher may
choose. For example,
time can be
measured to the
nearest minute,
second, half-second,
etc.

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

18

Types of Variables
• Discrete variable: no value can exist between two
neighboring categories.

• Continues variable: there are infinite number of


possible values that fall between any two observed
value

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

19

Measuring Variables

• To establish relationships between variables,


researchers must observe the variables and record
their observations. This requires that the variables
be measured.

• The process of measuring a variable requires a set


of categories called a scale of measurement
and a process that classifies each individual into
one category.

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

20

4 Types of Measurement Scales

1. A nominal scale is an unordered set of


categories identified only by name. Nominal
measurements only permit you to determine
whether two individuals are the same or different.
2. An ordinal scale is an ordered set of categories.
Ordinal measurements tell you the direction of
difference between two individuals.

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

10
2/11/2018

Numbers are regarded as NOMINAL when they represent categories for


21
classification of characteristics with no specific order.

Eg.1 Natural numbers in the general number system (0, 1, 2, 3,…. )

Eg.2 Numbers assigned to specific categories of colours:


1 for Blue 2 for Brown 3 for Green

Eg. 3*: Numbers representing a list of rate of death for each category (e.g.
state)
Nos. of Deaths for Three States

State 1 State 2 State 3


45 34 20

Note: In general, the true order of magnitudes can be applied to these numbers,
i.e. 20 < 34 < 45 (so that 45, 34 and 20 are ordinal!)
However, the ‘comparative ordering’ cannot be applied in this particular
case, as the rate of 45 deaths in State 1 perhaps is lower (in terms of
percentage of the population) as compared to 20 deaths in State 3!

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

Numbers are regarded as ORDINAL when they represent ordered relations


22
of some characteristic, with the order having unspecified intervals.

Eg.1 Grades obtained by students in a Maths Test

Eg.2 My pre-school child watches television:


1 very much
2 a little
3 not very much
4 not at all

Eg. 3 Suppose you conduct an Algebra Readiness Test to 3 different groups of


samples, namely Traditional Class, Hands-on Class and Prealgebra Class.
Each of these classes comprises of 7 students. The scores obtained by
each student are shown below:

Note: In this case, the numbers 95, 94, 89,


84,… can be ordered. Bearing in mind
the nature of interval scale, these
numbers may be regarded as
INTERVAL

4 Types of Measurement Scales

3. An interval scale is an ordered series of equal-sized


categories. Interval measurements identify the direction
and magnitude of a difference. The zero point is located
arbitrarily on an interval scale.
4. A ratio scale is an interval scale where a value of zero
indicates none of the variable. Ratio measurements
identify the direction and magnitude of differences and
allow ratio comparisons of measurements.

Correlational Studies

• The goal of a correlational study is to determine


whether there is a relationship between two
variables and to describe the relationship.
• A correlational study simply observes the two
variables as they exist naturally.

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

29

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

30

Experiments

• The goal of an experiment is to demonstrate a


cause-and-effect relationship between two
variables; that is, to show that changing the value of
one variable causes changes to occur in a second
variable.

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

15
2/11/2018

31

Experiments (cont.)

• In an experiment, one variable is manipulated to create


treatment conditions. A second variable is observed and
measured to obtain scores for a group of individuals in
each of the treatment conditions. The measurements are
then compared to see if there are differences between
treatment conditions. All other variables are controlled to
prevent them from influencing the results.
• In an experiment, the manipulated variable is called the
independent variable and the observed variable is the
dependent variable.

34

Other Types of Studies

• Other types of research studies, know as non-


experimental or quasi-experimental, are similar to
experiments because they also compare groups of
scores.
• These studies do not use a manipulated variable to
differentiate the groups. Instead, the variable that
differentiates the groups is usually a pre-existing
participant variable (such as male/female) or a time
variable (such as before/after).

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

35

Other Types of Studies (cont.)

• Because these studies do not use the manipulation


and control of true experiments, they cannot
demonstrate cause and effect relationships. As a
result, they are similar to correlational research
because they simply demonstrate and describe
relationships.

Two type of Statistics

• Descriptive statistics are methods for organizing


and summarizing data.
• Inferential statistics are methods for using sample
data to make general conclusions (inferences)
about populations

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

39

Descriptive Statistics

• Descriptive statistics are methods for organizing


and summarizing data.
• For example, tables or graphs are used to organize
data, and descriptive values such as the average
score are used to summarize data.
• A descriptive value for a population is called a
parameter and a descriptive value for a sample is
called a statistic.

www.utm.my innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global

40

Inferential Statistics

• Inferential statistics are methods for using sample data to


make general conclusions (inferences) about populations.
• Because a sample is typically only a part of the whole
population, sample data provide only limited information
about the population. As a result, sample statistics are
generally imperfect representatives of the corresponding
population parameters.

Sampling Error

• The discrepancy between a


sample statistic and its
population parameter is
called sampling error.
• Defining and measuring
sampling error is a large
part of inferential statistics.

Notation

• The individual measurements or scores


obtained for a research participant will be
identified by the letter X (or X and Y if there are
multiple scores for each individual).
• The number of scores in a data set will be
identified by N for a population or n for a
sample.
• Summing a set of values is a common
operation in statistics and has its own notation.
The Greek letter sigma, Σ, will be used to
stand for "the sum of." For example, ΣX
identifies the sum of the scores.
