# Bus 308 week 3 assignment anova and paired t-test

Week 3 ANOVA and Paired T-test SEE DATA BELOW IN CELL 142

At this point we know the following about male and female salaries.

a. Male and female overall average salaries are not equal in the population.

b. Male and female overall average compas are equal in the population, but males are a bit more spread out.

c. The male and female salary range are almost the same, as is their age and service.

d. Average performance ratings per gender are equal.

Let’s look at some other factors that might influence pay – education(degree) and performance ratings.

1 Last week, we found that average performance ratings do not differ between males and females in the population.

Now we need to see if they differ among the grades. Is the average performace rating the same for all grades?

(Assume variances are equal across the grades for this ANOVA.) You can use these columns to place grade Perf Ratings if desired.

A B C D E F

Null Hypothesis:

Alt. Hypothesis:

Place B17 in Outcome range box.

Interpretation:

What is the p-value:

Is P-value < 0.05?

Do we REJ or Not reject the null?

If the null hypothesis was rejected, what is the effect size value (eta squared):

Meaning of effect size measure:

What does that decision mean in terms of our equal pay question:

2 While it appears that average salaries per each grade differ, we need to test this assumption.

Is the average salary the same for each of the grade levels? (Assume equal variance, and use the analysis toolpak function ANOVA.)

Use the input table to the right to list salaries under each grade level.

Null Hypothesis: If desired, place salaries per grade in these columns

Alt. Hypothesis: A B C D E F

Place B55 in Outcome range box.

What is the p-value:

Is P-value < 0.05?

Do you reject or not reject the null hypothesis:

If the null hypothesis was rejected, what is the effect size value (eta squared):

Meaning of effect size measure:

Interpretation:

The table and analysis below demonstrate a 2-way ANOVA with replication. Please interpret the results.

What do these decisions mean in terms of our equal pay question:

Place data values in these columns

4 Many companies consider the grade midpoint to be the “market rate” – what is needed to hire a new employee. Salary Midpoint

Does the company, on average, pay its existing employees at or above the market rate?

Null Hypothesis:

Alt. Hypothesis:

Statistical test to use:

Place the cursor in B160 for test.

What is the p-value:

Is P-value < 0.05?

What else needs to be checked on a 1-tail in order to reject the null?

Do we REJ or Not reject the null?

If the null hypothesis was rejected, what is the effect size value: NA

Meaning of effect size measure: NA

Interpretation:

The ongoing question that the weekly assignments will focus on is: Are males and females paid the same for equal work (under the Equal Pay Act)?

Note: to simplfy the analysis, we will assume that jobs within each grade comprise equal work.

The column labels in the table mean:

ID – Employee sample number Salary – Salary in thousands

Age – Age in years Performance Rating – Appraisal rating (Employee evaluation score)

Service – Years of service (rounded) Gender: 0 = male, 1 = female

Midpoint – salary grade midpoint Raise – percent of last raise

Grade – job/pay grade Degree (0= BSBA 1 = MS)

Gender1 (Male or Female) Compa – salary divided by midpoint

5. Using the results up thru this week, what are your conclusions about gender equal pay for equal work at this point?

See comments at the right of the data set.
