# What scale of measurement is the DPESawe variable being measured on?

INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES

Overview

Attached is the data you will need.

Also, be sure to submit your Excel data sheet, and answer sheet.

Please remember the difference between a table (numbers) and a figure (this is the picture summarizing numbers like a graph).

Please remember the two-decimal rule – when creating new scale scores be sure variables are formatted with two decimals. ONE EXCEPTION: keep the GPA variable that you’ll come across later at 3 decimal places because that is how it was formatted on the actual survey participants responded to.

There are several locations below where you will have to perform variable transformations. Read through the set of instructions first and see where you need to calculate new values and do that work first.

For your answers, if you determine a variable is categorical please be sure to specify also if nominal or ordinal.

Dispositional Positive Emotions Scale (DPESawe). Participants were asked six awe-related questions of the DPES (Shiota et al., 2006) and instructed to rate their level of the agreement with the statements they read.  Response options were on a 7-point scale (1=strongly disagree; 7= strongly agree).  These six items were combined to calculate a mean DPESawe score for each person (α = 0.78).  Example items include: “I often feel awe” and “I often feel wonder every day”.

Question 1.

What scale of measurement is the DPESawe variable being measured on?

Question 2.

What measure of central tendency would you say is the most appropriate to calculate to summarize information about the DPESawe for an entire sample? Remember, you don’t have data for this in the data set you downloaded, so just identify which measure of central tendency you would pick.

Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) is a 21-item, self-report rating inventory that measures characteristic attitudes and symptoms of depression (Beck, et al., 1961). The BDI has been developed in different forms. The BDI takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, although clients require a fifth – sixth grade reading level to adequately understand the questions (Groth-Marnat, 1990).

Internal consistency for the BDI ranges from .73 to .92 with a mean alpha of .86. In each question individuals are asked to identify a statement that best characterizes them. For example,

Question 1.

0 – I do not feel sad

2 – I am so sad all the time and I can’t snap out of it’

3 – I am so sad and unhappy that I can’t stand it

Each question has 4 response options, from 0 to 3. Statements associated with a 0 represent the least emotional disturbance, while statements associated with a 3 represent the greatest level of emotional disturbance. For example, one question states, “0 – I don’t feel disappointed in myself” while the response option for 3 is “3 – I hate myself”.
