Reporting the Demographics of the Faculty
Every research report requires the researcher to report the demographic characteristics of the participants. The demographic information collected depends on the focus of the study. For this study, two key pieces of demographic information were collected: the gender of the faculty member and the number of years s/he has been teaching at the college level.
Run an analysis of the data in this SPSS file to summarize the characteristics of the 15 faculty in your study. You will want to review the videos located in both the topic materials and in the General Guidelines of the assignment for information on how to do this. Your analysis should include the following items:
The number of male and female faculty who responded
The mean number of years of college teaching reported by this group.
The standard deviation of years of college teaching reported by this group.
The range (lowest number of years to highest number of years) of college teaching reported by this group.
