Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Chi-Square Test of Independence
Describe the chi-square test of independence. Give an example of a question that could be answered by this test. If you were to assemble a contingency table, what would be included in your rows and columns? Pick a cell of this contingency table and explain what the value in the cell would represent (you do not need to give the value, just explain what it would represent). What hypothesis would be tested? What do you think the answer would be? Why?
Guided response: Assess two of your classmates’ responses. Is the example appropriate for a chi square test? Why or why not? Are the variables and their categories clear? Provide any further comments on the contingency table and the meaning of the values in the cells.
