In this assignment (created by Dr. Kimberly A. Barchard and Dr. Leiszle Lapping-Carr), students learn how to recode a string variable into a numeric variable, reverse code a numeric variable, and calculate a total score. A detailed grading rubric is included.
This assignment was designed to be completed with an existing dataset (the address is given on the assignment). The handout includes instructions on how to use SPSS to conduct the test, and to interpret output.
This assignment should take 30-60 minutes for students to complete.
We strongly encourage our students to complete these assignments in groups of 2-3 students.
