3. Statistical significance is found in a study, but the effect in reality is very small (i.e.,

there was a very minor difference in attitude between men and women). Were the

results meaningful?

An independent samples t test was conducted to determine whether differences

exist between men and women on cultural competency scores. The samples

consisted of 663 women and 650 men taken from a convenience sample of public,

private, and non-profit organizations. Each participant was administered an

instrument that measured his or her current levels of cultural competency. The

cultural competency score ranges from 0 to 10, with higher scores indicating higher

levels of cultural competency. The descriptive statistics indicate women have

higher levels of cultural competency (M = 9.2, SD = 3.2) than men (M = 8.9, SD =

2.1). The results were significant t (1311) = 2.0, p <.05, indicating that women are

more culturally competent than are men. These results tell us that gender-specific

interventions targeted toward men may assist in bolstering cultural competency.

4. A study has results that seem fine, but there is no clear association to social

change. What is missing?

A correlation test was conducted to determine whether a relationship exists

between level of income and job satisfaction. The sample consisted of 432

employees equally represented across public, private, and non-profit sectors. The

results of the test demonstrate a strong positive correlation between the two

variables, r =.87, p < .01, showing that as level of income increases, job

satisfaction increases as well.
