## Tutorial 5: One Way ANOVA

1. A researcher wants to determine whether there is a significant difference between the attitude towards
Mathematics mean score of Year 6 pupils from Class I, Class II and Class III in School A. The mean scores
for the 90 Year 6 pupils are given in the following table.

## Pupil Attitude towards Mathematics

Class I Class II Class III
1 156 185 132
2 185 160 156
3 170 138 144
4 172 160 136

## a) State the statistical assumptions for One Way ANOVA.

b) Using SPSS, test the hypothesis that there is a significant difference in the attitude towards
Mathematics mean score between Year 6 pupils from Class I, Class II and Class III in School A at the
.01 significance level.
2. A researcher wants to study the effect of teaching method on the English achievement of Form I pupils.
The result of the analysis using SPSS at .05 significance level is given as follows:
