Statistics Help, Please!

Recommended Posts

I am working on my thesis and am stuck on the stats part. I have been emailing my advisor for days asking for help, but I think she is avoiding me.


I have never taken a stats class, so I am so lost. I was going to hire someone to help me, but he is too busy since he is a grad student and is teaching at the college.


Basically this is what I have:

I surveyed 41 teachers.

I gave them a few different scenarios and they were to rate each one based on a 1-6 scale, 1 being strongly disagree and 6 being strongly agree. They were asked 6 questions about the survey. Basically the questions are if they have ever used that strategy in their room, that the scenario I gave them will help their students, etc....6 of these and they were to rate each one on the scale.


I hope this makes sense.


What I thought I could do was just get a percentage then turn it in to a decimal, but I don't think that is correct.


As you can tell I am so lost and have been putting this off since last fall because I have been terrified of the stats. I am in a time crunch, so it's time to buckle down.


I just need someone to explain to me how to do it and I will do it; I am not asking for anyone to do it for me.


I will totally compensate someone for helping me....


Edited: I tried uploading the surveys, but I got an error saying it was an invalid file?

Hi Martha, I am a researcher and can probably help you or get you pointed in the right direction. I'll PM you my number unless you can explain it more in a PM? No compensation necessary!

Samantha, Thank you. I replied to your PM.



For anyone else that might wanna help, all I have to do is descriptive stats and put tables in my paper. Seems easy enough. I didn't even know what descriptive stats were. I Googled and it makes sense, I just really don't know what to do. Can you tell math stuff is my weakness? sad.gif

Hi Martha!


If Samantha wasn't able to help, I probably can. This sort of stuff is something of a specialty of mine.


I'll PM you my phone numbers and e-mail. Let me know how I can help!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
