ASSESSMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Overall Comments (Assignment grade 71%)

Hi Chrishawn,

You showed a strong understanding of the topics covered and did a nice job providing the SPSS output for the table! However, there were two areas that were not addressed. Always make sure that your document has all SPSS output before submission. Please feel free to message me with any questions. I am here to help and more than happy to!

CRITERION 1

Apply the appropriate SPSS procedures for creating histograms to generate relevant output.

(10%)

COMPETENCY

selectedNON-PERFORMANCENo SPSS output is provided.

not selectedBASICIncludes some, but not all, of the required output. Numerous errors in SPSS output.

not selectedPROFICIENTApplies the appropriate SPSS procedures for creating histograms to generate relevant output.

not selectedDISTINGUISHEDIncludes all relevant output; no irrelevant output is included. No errors in SPSS output.

COMMENTS:

There were no histograms in this document. I sent you a courseroom message about this on Saturday, but did not receive a response. Always make sure that all figures are in the document before submissions.

CRITERION 2

Analyze the concepts of skew, kurtosis, outliers, symmetry, and modality for two histograms.

(20%)

COMPETENCY

not selectedNON-PERFORMANCENo interpretation is provided.

not selectedBASICExplains the basic definitions of skew, kurtosis, outlier, symmetry, and modality.

not selectedPROFICIENTAnalyzes the concepts of skew, kurtosis, outliers, symmetry, and modality for two histograms.

selectedDISTINGUISHEDEvaluates the concepts of skew, kurtosis, outliers, symmetry, and modality for two histograms.

COMMENTS:

Although the graphs were not present, you correctly interpreted the graphs that should have been generated.

CRITERION 3

Identify the strengths and limitations of examining a distribution of scores with a histogram.

(15%)

COMPETENCY

selectedNON-PERFORMANCEDoes not identify the strengths and limitations of examining a distribution of scores with a histogram.

not selectedBASICPartially identifies the strengths and limitations of examining a distribution of scores with a histogram.

not selectedPROFICIENTIdentifies the strengths and limitations of examining a distribution of scores with a histogram.

not selectedDISTINGUISHEDAnalyzes the strengths and limitations of examining a distribution of scores with a histogram.

COMMENTS:

I did not see where you discussed the strengths/limitations of examining a distribution of scores with a histogram.

CRITERION 4

Apply the appropriate SPSS procedure for generating descriptive statistics to generate relevant output.

(10%)

COMPETENCY

not selectedNON-PERFORMANCENo SPSS output is provided.

not selectedBASICIncludes some, but not all, of the required output. Numerous errors in SPSS output.

selectedPROFICIENTApplies the appropriate SPSS procedure for generating descriptive statistics to generate relevant output.

not selectedDISTINGUISHEDIncludes all relevant output; no irrelevant output is included. No errors in SPSS output.

COMMENTS:

You did a great job correctly generating the SPSS output. However, there were slight errors in some of the values reported. Please make sure that you are using the correct data set (the data set is posted in the Updates and Handouts discussion forum). Please message me if you have any questions about this.

CRITERION 5

Analyze meaningful versus meaningless variables reported in descriptive statistics.

(15%)

COMPETENCY

not selectedNON-PERFORMANCEDoes not analyze meaningful versus meaningless variables reported in descriptive statistics.

not selectedBASICIdentifies, but does not analyze, meaningful versus meaningless variables reported in descriptive statistics.

selectedPROFICIENTAnalyzes meaningful versus meaningless variables reported in descriptive statistics.

not selectedDISTINGUISHEDEvaluates meaningful versus meaningless variables reported in descriptive statistics.

COMMENTS:

You did a great job distinguishing between which variables were meaningful and which were meaningless. A little more evaluation of why this was the case with the meaningless variables would strengthen this section.

CRITERION 6

Interpret descriptive statistics.

(20%)

COMPETENCY

not selectedNON-PERFORMANCENo interpretation is provided.

not selectedBASICIdentifies, but does not interpret, descriptive statistics.

not selectedPROFICIENTInterprets descriptive statistics.

selectedDISTINGUISHEDEvaluates descriptive statistics.

COMMENTS:

Great work evaluating the descriptive statistics of these variables. This section hit each necessary point in the instructions and was very well organized. Nicely done.

CRITERION 7

Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent with the expectations for members in the identified field of study.

(10%)
