Almost 4 years ago I asked for some help with this program. At the time I got none and had to work it out on my own. Now Like Chucky, I'm back.
Today was one of those days that you hope you never have, but are glad you did. I went to do some data analysis today with my team members-4 ladies locked in a room for 7 hours with 5 computers and nothing but data!-amazingly good fun.
After reverting to raw data because I didn't have the software on my computer and the uni I was at didn't have it either, I ended up looking at 1000's and 1000's of different 0's, 1's, and .'s. (Our Item bank needed validation and we have over 10,000 items). Now I'm far from a smart cookie, but managed to sort all of it by hand and enter it into excel to work out the SD and AVE.
Now I need to put the darned thing into SPSS and get a graph. OK, one of the girls on the team wants a graph that is different from the graphs I got on excel. Am I reverting to my thick self, or are they just going to be exactly the same? I really don't want to waste another 7 hours tomorrow. I have a consultant to meet and Darryl's recent post has made me determined to get up at 4 to jog over to the Gold Coast (21k away)
Any helpers out there????
