  • Standard Coefficients Calculator
  • Copy variable #1 and #2 into the skewness and kurtosis calculator

Step three

  • Calculate Nonparametric Independent Samples t -test on Data
  • √ Analyze
  • √ Nonparametric Tests
  • √ 2 Independent Samples
  • √ Test Variable would be your Dependent Variable (e.g., test scores)
  • √ Grouping Variable would be your dichotomous Independent Variable

  • √ Define Groups
  • √ Group One is No. 1 and Group Two is No. 2 (or whatever numbers you used to identify each group)
  • Note : Click on view than value labels to find the code for each group.
  • √ Continue
  • √ OK

Step four:

  • Check for Statistical Significance

Mann-Whitney U 6765.500
Wilcoxon W 44166.500
Z -20.752
Asymp. Sig. (2-tailed) .000
  • a. Grouping Variable:Disability Group Membership
  • Numerical sentence is written as: U = 6765.50, p <.001

Step five:

Write up your statistics

So, how do you "write up" your Research Questions and your Results? Schuler W. Huck (2000) in his seminal book entitled, Reading Statistics and Research, points to the importance of your audience understanding and making sense of your research in written form. Huck further states:

This book is designed to help people decipher what researchers are trying to communicate in the written or oral summaries of their investigations. Here, the goal is simply to distill meaning from the words, symbols, tables, and figures included in the research report. To be competent in this arena, one must not only be able to decipher what's presented but also to "fill in the holes"; this is the case because researchers typically assume that those receiving the research report are familiar with unmentioned details of the research process and statistical treatment of data.

Researchers and Professors John Slate and Ana Rojas-LeBouef understand this critical issue, so often neglected or not addressed by other authors and researchers. They point to the importance of doctoral students "writing up their statistics" in a way that others can understand your reporting and as importantly, interpret the meaning of your significant findings and implications for the preparation and practice of educational leadership. Slate and LeBouef provide you with a model for "writing up your nonparametric independent samples t -test statistics."

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
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
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
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?
