Enclosed is a scenario for a research problem that would be investigated using the chi square test of independence with two variables (gender and type of activity). A sixth grade teacher has noticed often that when students in class discuss the type of activities they enjoyed over the weekends, the boys tend to discuss different activities from those discussed by the girls. To test whether there is a gender difference in the type of activity enjoyed by the children, the teacher asks all 120 sixth graders in the school to list their favorite weekend activity. The teacher then classifies the activities into five categories: physical activity outdoors, physical activity indoors, sedentary activity alone, sedentary activity with others or religious activity. The teacher compares the type of activity participated in by boys and girls to determine any gender differences. For this last blog post, develop and describe your own scenario that would use either the chi-square test for independence or the goodness of fit chi square. Comment on the ideas of a peer in the course. Have they correctly identified the appropriate chi-square test given the scenario described? Are there any limits to the sample size that should be considered? Length of Paper: 2 pages (please do not submit even one paragraph less than two pages “ thank you).
