        • WEEK 2 Discussion Forum Tables and Figures

          Posted on: Sunday, June 7, 2020 10:08:06 AM EDT
           
          WEEK 2 Discussion Forum Tables and Figures
           
          Dear Class,
           
          This week (Week 2), we are attaching tables and/or figures directly to the discussion forum.  Here are some tips in order to do so effectively.  I have provided some steps in order to assist with this problem.  This is necessary so that other students can effectively respond to you.
           
          Also Walden provides examples in this link for Tables and Figures: https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/formandstyle/apa/tablesfigures/tables
          Here is another link to a document that may be helpful with APA tables and SPSS
          SPSS_Tables_to_APA_Style.pdf
           
          Figures/Graphs:
           
          1. Save graph from word document as a picture on your computer (PC)
          2. Click insert/edit image icon located on the bottom left of your tool bar in blackboard (next to insert file icon)
          3. Click browse my computer
          4. Click pictures
          5. Locate your graph/picture
          6. Click open
          7. Click insert
           
          Using a Tool to Format APA Tables in SPSS Instructions:
           
          In addition, here is some information on formatting tables in SPSS.  In case you are having difficulties within the class and having trouble creating APA tables, as well as have the default borders set.  Therefore, I created a file that you can upload into SPSS and allow all of your tables to appear as APA.  Here are the instructions on how to change default settings with SPSS into APA.  This method is much easier than the previous methods I have provided.  I hope these instructions help.
          In SPSS

          • Go to Edit > Options
          • Go to the Pivot Tables tab
          • Download the file (APA-table look 1 1.stt) that I attached in announcements to your PC
          • Browse your PC and load the stt table look file into TableLook
          • Please choose “shrink width to fit”.
          • Press “Apply” at the bottom of the screen

           
          File attachment for SPSS Table Fix.
          APA-table look_1__1_ _2_.stt  
           
           
          Remember when you click and copy the table from SPSS, you will need to put in the Table and Title and notes.
           
          Here are some examples of APA tables and figures below:
          Table 3
           
           
          Here is another table showing frequencies that I ran in SPSS after I completed the “Formatting APA Tables in SPSS Instructions above:
           
          Remember when you click and copy the table from SPSS, you will need to put in the Table and Title and any notes as I have done below:

        • Week 1 Assignment – Calculating the Mean

          Posted on: Thursday, June 4, 2020 9:53:37 AM EDT
           
          Class, Please see your Social Statistics text (Chapter 3), SPSS text,  and/or skill building resources (Measures of Central Tendency) to calculate the mean.   It would also be good to post the actual SPSS output for the mean and provide a description of what this is telling you about the data set.

        • Reuse of Student Work Policy – Reminder

          Posted on: Wednesday, May 27, 2020 1:27:10 PM EDT
           
          Reuse of Student Work Policy – Reminder
           
          Dear Doctoral Students,
          As you would expect, assignments at Walden in each course are not designed to be duplicated in another course. Part of the purpose and design of a doctoral program is not only to prepare you to be an expert in your chosen area (primarily done via your capstone  project or dissertation), but to gain breadth, knowledge, skills and expertise in the many other areas of public health.
          Thus, please advised that Walden does not permit re-use of your own scholarly work, including repeating a course, unless permission is granted in advance of your assignment submission by your instructor. The one exception is your dissertation, which can draw from your previous work.
          Please review the Students’ Misuse of Their Own Scholarly Work section of our Academic Integrity Policy within our Student Code of Conduct.
          Repeating a course due to a course failure/withdrawal – Permission is required from your instructor in advance before submitting work you completed in your previous attempt. Assignments that can only be written/answered in one way and without variation may be approved.
          Submitting an assignment or part of an assignment from another course – This is not permitted unless the assignment specifically calls for it. Check with your instructor first.
          Reuse of work within the same course – Assignments, such as a Scholar Practitioner Project, that build each week are permitted and not considered re-use of work. Using a discussion post for a later assignment should be approved by your instructor.
          Dissertation: Students are permitted to use work previously submitted in their courses
          Refer to the Walden University Writing Center resources on “Citing Yourself”: http://academicguides.waldenu.edu/writingcenter/apa/citations/citingyourself  and http://academicanswers.waldenu.edu/a.php?qid=442531  as well as the APA 6th or 7th edition on “Self-Plagiarism”.
          We wish you every success in your course and are here to help you meet the academic integrity requirements at Walden University.
          Please contact Codeofconduct@mail.waldenu.edu  if you have any questions regarding our academic integrity policies. We are invested in your success and appreciate the commitment we see every day from our students, faculty and staff in upholding academic integrity.

        • Week 1 Assignment Due Day 7 and by – June 7, 2020

          Posted on: Tuesday, June 2, 2020 6:09:06 PM EDT
           
          Class,  Please remember that you do have an assignment this week in addition to the discussion assignment.
          The assignment asks you to look at Variables, Measurement, and SPSS and hopefully you were able to down load the SPSS statistical software program.   Information is also provided regarding the download of SPSS and tutoring services to assist you in already posted announcements.
          You will choose  one data set from two data sets that are provided.  Providing you have downloaded the SPSS, you should be able to just click on the data set you want to use and it will also open the SPSS software. You need to choose and open only one of the data sets (Afrobarometer dataset or the High School Longitudinal Study dataset). The data sets are found in this week’s Announcements/Doc Sharing and then choose two variables that interest you to complete this assignment from the data set you chose.
           

          In addition, early in your Assignment, when you select which dataset you analyzed, please include the mean of the following variables depending on the data set you chose. If you are using the Afrobarometer Dataset, report the mean of Q1 (Age). If you are using the HS Long Survey Dataset, report the mean of X1Par1Edu.
           
          But the questions below are for the two other variables that you chose from one of the data sets that I posted in announcements and doc sharing.:

           
           
           
          You will be expected to write a 1- to 2-page summary and include a description of what each of the variables measure, the unit of analysis, and an explanation of the levels of measurement for each variable (i.e., nominal, ordinal, interval, ratio).  Please be sure to include implications for social change.  Additionally, please be sure to use proper APA formatting, which includes an APA title page. I look forward to reading your first assignment.
           
           
          More detailed assignment Requirements and the proper naming convention and formatting for your assignment is found under the assignment instructions.
           
          Please make sure to read all the requirements for the Week 1 Assignment.
           
          Information is also provided regarding the download of SPSS and tutoring services to assist you.
           
          Hope all goes well to complete the download of SPSS, data sets and other requirements to finish out week 1.

        • Re-authenticate SPSS Access

          Posted on: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 3:46:21 PM EDT
           
          Attention Students,
          SPSS is a software package that provides students with statistical analysis, modeling, predictive, and survey research tools used in many of our courses and advanced research activities. Students can download the latest version of SPSS from the web free of charge. Walden is pleased to be able to continue offering this important resource free of charge for the duration of your program; and now the process for receiving SPSS is easier than ever.
          Please note that all students will need to enter an updated access code on September 30, 2013 to re-authenticate their SPSS license. Read the instructions about updating an expired license. If you are in need of the latest version SPSS, version 20.0, you may download it by following the installation instructions.
          Do I need to download the latest version?

          • Yes, if you have an older version and would like the current version.
          • Yes, if you had SPSS but your license has since expired and you need to continue using it.
          • Yes, if you are beginning your first course where you will be using SPSS.

          If you have any questions about this change or need assistance downloading SPSS, please contact Walden’s Student Support Team from your myWalden portal by choosing the Support tab and clicking “Click to Chat.” You can also call 1-800-WALDENU (925-3368) or e-mail support@waldenu.edu. Please include your name, student ID number, and degree program with any correspondence.
