Assignment Scenario

The Vold Anti-Poverty Foundation is comparing three employment programs for former foster care youth to determine which leads to best outcomes. The three programs are a vocational skills training program, a mentorship program, and a job placement service. The foundation collected data six months after the youth completed each program and the youth were asked to provide their monthly incomes.

Assignment Instructions

For this assignment, complete the following in a one-page, APA-formatted paper:

  1. Review the tutorial provided in the first study in this unit as a guide for conducting ANOVA tests.
  2. Use the Unit 7 Dataset, given in the resources, to test whether monthly income varied by type of services rendered at a .05 level of significance.
  3. State the following, based on the output shown in the output file you develop:
    • For each group, state the sample size and monthly income (mean and standard deviation).
    • State the results of the F-test including degrees of freedom, F-statistic, and p-value.
    • If the overall F-test is significant, report the results of the Tukey post hoc test. 
  4. Respond to the following prompts, based on the value of the test statistic:
    • Would the ANOVA test lead you to retain the null hypothesis or reject the null hypothesis?
    • Which groups had the best outcomes, if there is a statistically significant difference?
  5. Provide a summary of the conclusion for this test. Be sure to include the interpretation of the findings for the Vold Foundation.
