PART 2 OF LAB 3: QUESTIONS: 2.1 Overall sample table (20 points total). 2.2 Academic Status Category subgroup table (20 points total). 2.3 HS Grade Category subgroup table (20 points total. DATASETS TO BE USED: For this lab, open the Excel dataset named GRADES AND STATUS DATASET from the course website and save to your student drive or memory stick. Work on these data from your own drive. Answer the following questions as directed in this Word document only. QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED: Research Question: You have been hired by the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities to undertake an analysis of how well high school students do in their first year of university. The first part of your analysis involves a descriptive contingency table of their high school entrance-to-university grade, and their academic status at the end of their first year in university. [The second part of your analysis will involve correlation and regression that you will do in your next lab]. Using the dataset provided, calculate the percentile contingency tables required to answer the questions. Part 1: Producing the basic association statistics. 1.1 Fill in the tables below from your lab analysis. (Worth 40 points. NOTE: You start with 40 and will lose 0.5 marks for every wrong answer).

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TABLES: Note that the following questions are not asking you for a narrative response answering the research question. The correct answer is limited to interpreting directionality of the data. 2.1 For the results in the tables above (i) which table (number and title) would you use to discuss the overall differences between HS grade and Academic Status for the whole sample (5 points), and (ii) a using a numeric example from the table what is it telling you about how each of the subgroups relate? (15 points). i. Table 2 (Academic status after 1st year – percent of all) ii. It tells that 10 people who have 90% + high school grade and whose academic status is clear, constitute to 2.2 % of the total population of the 446 students. 2.2 For the results in the tables above (i) which table (number and title) would you use to discuss the distribution of HS grade subgroup across Academic Status and (ii) a using a numeric example from the table what it is telling you about how each of the subgroups relate? (15 points). i. Table 3 (Academic status after 1st year – percent of grade category) ii. It tells that 10 people who have 90% + high school grade and whose academic status is clear constitute to 90.9 % of the 90 + High school grade subgroup total of 11. 2.3 For the results in the tables above (i) which table (number and title) would you use to discuss the distribution of the Academic Status subgroup across the Grade categories (5 points) and (ii) using a numeric example from the table, explain what it is telling you about how each of the subgroups relate? (15 points) i. Table 4 (Academic status after 1st year – percent of status category) ii. It tells that 10 people who have 90%+ high school grade and whose academic status is clear, constitute to 3.9% of the clear academic Status total of 257.
