In this Assignment, you complete the Independent Samples ttest Worksheet, which provides stepbystep instructions on how to conduct and interpret the findings of an independent sample ttest in SPSS. After you have conducted the descriptive statistic, write the results in APA format. An example is provided in the worksheet.

Worksheet Assignment
Run an independent sample ttest following the instructions in the textbook. The output of the test will provide you with the differences between groups. First, check for significance, which is provided in the chart under “Sig. (2talied).” If there is significance, look at the Group Statistics box under Mean. This will give you the information you need to state if there is significance between groups. If there is no significance, you still have results that mean something. Write them up in APA format. Follow the example below.
APA WriteUp Example
An independent ttest was conducted to compare the mean IPV physical victimization scores of male high school students (N=172, M=2.70, SD=3.82) with those of female high school students (N=64, M=2.25, SD=3.67). This comparison was found not statistically significant. The results indicate that boys and girls did not differ in likelihood of being victims of physical violence.
