The focus of this week is still on Chapter 11: Chi-Square tests. The goals are to learn the basic concepts in analyzing the correlation between two categorical variables. You need to know how to compute the chi-square test statistics such as goodness of fit test and the test of independence, and perform these tests using the critical value or p-value. You need be able to use SPSS to perform the tests. You need to be able interpret the SPSS output to conclude the analyses. The test of independence and the test for homogeneity of proportions are the same test.
