I have given the instructions put also attached the instructions. I have done the data collection so that you can write it into the paper and analyze it. The data needs to be interpreted into the paper and analyzed! I have 15 participants in this test and the scale is 20 items. I had reversed scored items in this analysis as well so that needs to be mentioned; those reversed items were: Reverse scored items: 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 20. This is a likert scale 1-7. You should be able to find out information on the Competitiveness Index scale in order to understand this assignment. PLEASE ONLY TAKE THIS ASSIGNMENT IF YOU UNDERSTAND CRONBACH ALPA, TEST-RESTEST, CORRELATIONS, INTERNAL CONSISTENCY AND HOW TO ANALYZE THIS DATA AND WRITE A RELIABILITY SUMMARY ON IT.
I have attached the template that she wants this written in. IGNORE the data and table part I will paste them in later but I need you to analyze the data I am sending you.
Reliability Analysis: Competitiveness Index is the name of my test
Discuss reliability and the four types. Use credible sources and DO NOT copy and paste. You should write these up in your own words with in-text citations in APA style. There should be at least a paragraph for each type of reliability. Please fully develop your explanation of 1) overall reliability, 2) parallel forms reliability, 3) inter-rater reliability, 4) internal consistency and 5) test-retest reliability. Your paragraphs should be clear and in your own words.
Results – Internal Consistency
Describe the statistical analysis and results. Explain the concept behind the analysis. You need to discuss both Cronbach’s alpha and the key item total statistics. This is the information that will ultimately go into the results section of the final paper. (Please include tables/graphs in an appendix at the end, but refer to them in your text.)
Results – Test-retest Reliability
Describe the statistical analysis and results. Explain the concept behind the analysis.You need to describes the test-retest reliability coefficient and the figure.This is the information that will ultimately go into the results section of the final paper. (Please include tables/graphs in an appendix at the end, but refer to them in your text.)
Start with an overall interpretation of the scale’s reliability.Then support this statement by interpreting the results in detail. Keep in mind that you are writing part of the discussion section of your final paper.
Interpret what the results mean about the personality scale’s internal consistency.
Interpret what the results mean about the personality scale’s test-retest reliability.
Compare and contrast the results to the findings from the literatures.You read two pieces for the Test/Literature Summary. Make sure to describe the internal consistency and test-retest reliability results presented.
Provide a logical explanation for these findings.What are the strengths and weaknesses of the test based on these findings? What are your recommendations for use?
