Lab Project Phase 3 – SPSS Output Instructions

After completing Phase 2 of the Lab Project, you now have 2 important variables in relation to your research question: a variable representing the total understanding of Christian doctrine, and a variable representing amount of church attendance. It is time for you to decide how to analyze the data! Think about what the research question is asking (i.e. how is it worded?), and think about your 2 important variables. Then think about the methods that you have learned over the past several weeks. Which statistical test is the best choice for this particular situation? There is a “right” answer to this question, so think carefully and review your text and notes if necessary.

· Once you have decided on which test is the best, you will run the analysis and create a graph just as you did in your SPSS homework assignments. Correlation would be the best test to determine the differences between a relation of frequency of church attendance and total understanding of basic Christian doctrine.

· You are required to paste the output file:
