For this particular chapter, the research question on which we will conduct a MANOVA will be: What is the difference in verbal aptitude among elementary reading groups? Verbal aptitude consists of Verbal 1 (inf), Verbal 2 (sim), Verbal 3 (ari), and Verbal 4 (voc).

In this example, our independent or grouping variable is elementary reading group.

By clicking on variable view, you can see how many groups of students are present in the reading group variable; the names of the groups; and the numbers which have been assigned to each group.

After clicking on Variable View, the following screen will appear: Arrows have been placed toward the name of the independent or grouping variable; toward the label assigned to this variable; and then toward the values of each group.

Now click on the cell for Reading Group Membership. Three dots will appear, indicating that another screen is beneath this one.

Click on the three dots shown in the screen above and the value and name of each of the reading groups will be shown. Our three groups are Excellent Reader (1), Good Reader (2), and Extremely Poor Reader (3).

Now that you know what your independent (grouping) variable is and your dependent variables are, it is time to determine the extent to which the dependent variable data are normally distributed. Cancel out of the screen above. Then click on data view.

Your screen should now look like the one below.

Check for Skewness and Kurtosis values falling within/without the parameters of normality (-3 to +3). To do so, you need to obtain these values for each of your three groups for each of your four dependent variables.

√ Split your file on the basis on your independent variable/fixed factor/grouping variable. To do so, click on the icon next to the scales. Holding your cursor on it will reveal Split File, as shown below.

After clicking on the split file icon, the following screen will appear: You will note that the Analyze all cases, do not create groups is checked. This value is the default for SPSS as all cases are analyzed, unless otherwise specified. To obtain measures of normality for each of the three reading groups, the Compare groups button will need to be clicked.

The screen below will appear after the Compare groups button has been clicked. Note that the Groups Based on rectangle has now become active. The independent (grouping) variable should be highlighted, as it already is, and then moved to the Groups Based on cell. After highlighting the Reading Group Membership variable, then click on the arrow below.

After clicking on the arrow, your independent variable of Reading Group Membership is now in the Groups Based on cell. Now click on OK.

Now all SPSS analyses will be calculated separately for each of the three reading groups.

* Descriptive Statistics

* Frequencies

After clicking on frequencies, the following screen should now be present. Remember that the dependent variables in this example are Verbal 1 through Verbal 4 (i.e., inf, ari, voc)

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
