RES 865: Assignment Module 2 Problem Set2After finally downloading the software and being able to review the first part of the assignment I havelocated the data in the “Drinks.sav” folder and able to open in through SPSS. In section 2.11 LearningActivity we are asked to create standardized scores for all the scale variables for price through alcohol. Inreview of the information I have attained I have found that have a positive standardized score in everyvariable are the beverages #1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 17, & 19. In the demonstration that I have created I foundthat the positive standard score is indicating that the critical information is above the mean. If it were todemonstrate a negative standard score it would be indicative that the critical information is below the mean.This is creates by a quantity without dimensions through the subtraction of the mean from the populated area.This will be a factor created by a score giving the appearance of being a raw score. Then the researcher mustallow for dividing the difference by the standard deviation population. This allows for the process known asstandardizing or normalizing (Creswell, 2013).The question that is proposed for question #2 requires an answer for the most extreme z-score on eachvariable? The most extreme z-score of on each of the variables is demonstrated by beverages #1 (1.35529),#9 (-.03332), & #11 (.28713). The next question to be answered is “What is the most extreme z-score acrossall variables?” The most common z-score across all variables appears to be .33-.35.The next question we are to answer is “What is the most typical of all beverages, that is, has z-scorevalues closest to 0 for the variables?” Beverage #11 has the z-score value that is closest to zero.The final question (#4) asks “If the variable is normally distributed, what percentage of cases shouldbe above 1 standard deviation from the mean or below 1 standard deviation from the mean? Calculate thispercentage for a couple of the variables. Is the percentage of beverages with an absolute z-score above 1close to the theoretical value?”The percentages that I have found are above 1 and close to the theoreticalvalue that is calculated by the formula given.
