**PARTA**

· **Multiple Regression**

This week, you have learned how to use regression in research study. In this Application, you will perform a multiple regression analysis.

To prepare for this Application:

· Review Chapter 8 of the Field text for a description of the simple regression and an example of conducting a simple regression using PASW.

· Review Chapter 5 from the APA manual, “Displaying Results.”

· Review the media resources demonstrating the multiple regression..

The assignment:

Complete Smart Alex's Task #4 on p. 355 to perform a multiple regression analysis using the Supermodel.sav dataset from the Field text. You can follow the steps outlined on pp. 316–320 as a guide.

Report your findings in APA format according to the guidelines in the PASW Application Assignment Guidelines handout. The final document should be 2–3 pages long.

**Part B**

· **Linear Multiple Regression**

This week, you have expanded on your knowledge of multiple regression to work with linear multiple regression. In this Application, you will perform a linear multiple regression analysis.

**To prepare for this Application:**

· Review Chapter 8 of the Field text for a description of the linear multiple regression and an example of conducting a linear multiple regression using PASW.

· Review Chapter 5 from the APA manual, “Displaying Results.”

· Review the media resources demonstrating the linear multiple regression.

**The assignment:**

Complete Smart Alex's Task #5 on p. 355 to complete the linear multiple regression analysis using the Child Aggression.sav dataset from the Field text. However, use only the variables Aggression (DV), and test to see if Sibling Aggression is a mediatorof the relationship between Parenting Style and Aggression or whether Sibling Aggression is a moderator of the relationship.

You can follow the steps outlined on pp. 331–354 as a guide. Report your findings in APA format according to the guidelines in the PASW Application Assignment Guidelines handout. The final document should be 2–3 pages long.

PART C

· **Odds Ratio**

This week, you have been introduced to several concepts of logistic regression, specifically the odds ratio. In this Application, you will report the odds ratio in a given test.

**To prepare for this Application:**

· Review Chapter 19 of the Field text for a description of logistic regression and the odds ratio.

· Review the media resources demonstrating the odds ratio.

**The assignment:**

Complete Smart Alex's Task #5 on p. 812 of the Field text. Include only **Burnout** as the dependent variable and **Coping Style** and **Stress from Teaching** as the two independent variables. Report the odds ratio ONLY.

Use APA format according to the guidelines in the PASW Application Assignment Guidelines handout. The final document should be 2–3 pages long.

PART D

· **Logistic Regression**

This week, you have continued your work with regression by using logistic regression. In this Application, you will perform a logistic regression analysis.

**To prepare for this Application:**

· Review Chapter 19 of the Field text for a description of the logistic multiple regression using PASW.

· Review Chapter 5 from the APA manual, “Displaying Results.”

· Review the media resources demonstrating the logistic regression.

**The assignment:**

Complete Smart Alex's Task #6 on p. 812 to complete the logistic multiple regression analysis exercise using the condom.sav dataset from the Field text. You can follow the steps outlined on p. 799 as a guide. Report your findings in APA format according to the guidelines in the PASW Application Assignment Guidelines handout. The final document should be 2–3 pages long.
