4434Critical Thinking Exercises
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=477462
Critical thinking in my class refers to the ability to answer why and how questions such as why do people commit crimes and why do people vote the way they do. Critical thinking also refers to the ability to develop organized and logical arguments and to test hypotheses using the scientific approach. In my class there are two papers that revolve around the analysis of quantitative data. On this site I have posted the assignments I have used in five semesters along with the data sets that are used in these assignments. These assignments could be used in a critical thinking class or any class that included a component that involved the analysis of quantitative data.Sun, 11 Jul 2010 13:27:53 -0700Exercises Using the 2014 General Social Survey and SPSS: attitudes toward abortion
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1066857
There are two exercises that use data from the 2014 General Social Survey to explore topics in attitudes toward abortion. These exercises could be used to help students learn the principles of quantitative analysis with a focus on attitudes toward abortion. Topics include attitudes toward abortion, quantitative analysis, statistics, mesurement, reliability, two- and three-variable tables, percents, Chi Square, measures of association, and Cronbach's Alpha. These exercises refer students to the relevant parts of an online introduction to SPSS – the software package used in the exercises. This online introduction is freely available at http://ssric.org/node/459. Each exercise consists of five files – the data set in SPSS format, extended notes to the instructor, the SPSS syntax necessary to carry out the exercise, and the SPSS output for the exercise. The exercise itself is available in both in HTML and Microsoft Word (docx) format.Thu, 24 Sep 2015 14:10:24 -0700Exercises Using the 2014 General Social Survey and SPSS: Statistics
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1066211
These exercises (16 in all) were written for instructors teaching an introductory class in statistics. They were written so each exercise is independent of the others and any one exercise can be used even if the other exercises are not used. The exercises also serve to introduce students to SPSS which is a commonly used statistical package used in many classes. A good reference on using SPSS is SPSS for Windows Version 22.0 A Basic Tutorial by Linda Fiddler, John Korey, Edward Nelson (Editor), and Elizabeth Nelson. The online version of the book is at http://ssric.org/node/459. Students are referred in the exercises to appropriate places in this book. The data set used in this exercise is gss14_subset_for_classes_STATISTICS.sav which is a subset of the 2014 General Social Survey. Each exercise consists of five files all of which can be downloaded: the exercise itself as a Word (docx) file, notes to instructor as a Word (docx) file, the data file in SPSS format, the SPSS syntax necessary to carry out the exercise as a SPSS syntax file, and the SPSS output for the exercise as a SPSS output file. You have permission to use these exercises and to revise them to fit your needs. Each exercise has a set of keywords to give you a quick view of what is covered.Tue, 22 Sep 2015 15:09:23 -0700Exercises Using the 2014 General Social Survey and SPSS: Tolerance
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1066848
There are three exercises that use data from the 2014 General Social Survey to explore topics in tolerance. Tolerance is measured using questions that are based on the work of Samuel Stouffer in his classic book Communism, Conformity, and Civil Liberties. These exercises could be used to help students learn the principles of quantitative analysis with a focus on tolerance. Topics include tolerance, percentages, Chi Square, measures of association, two- and three-variable tables, and spuriousness. These exercises refer students to the relevant parts of an online introduction to SPSS – the software package used in the exercises. This online introduction is freely available at http://ssric.org/node/459. Each exercise consists of five files – the data set in SPSS format, extended notes to the instructor, the SPSS syntax necessary to carry out the exercise, and the SPSS output for the exercise. The exercise itself is available in both in HTML and Microsoft Word (docx) format.Thu, 24 Sep 2015 13:52:37 -0700Gender Difference Exercises Using SPSS and the General Social Survey
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1120318
There are four exercise that use data from the 2014 General Social Survey to explore gender differences. These exercises could be used to help students learn the principles of quantitative analysis with a focus on gender differences. The exercises look at gender differences in political party affiliation, political orientation (conservative, moderate, liberal), political interest, voting, and opinion on the social issues of abortion, capital punishment, and gun control. Control variables (i.e., family income, respondent's income, gun ownership) are added into the analysis to see how they affect gender differences. Exercises refer students to the relevant parts of an online introduction to SPSS, the software package used in this analysis. This online introduction is freely avalable at http://ssric.org/node/459. Each exercise consists of four files -- the data set in SPSS format, extended notes to the instructor, the SPSS syntax necessary to carry out the exercise, and the SPSS output for the exercise.Mon, 25 Jan 2016 17:02:05 -0800Exercises Using the 2014 General Social Survey and SPSS: Religion

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1287663
This is a series of thirteen exercises which were written for an introductory research methods course. The first exercise focuses on the research design which is your plan of action that explains how you will try to answer your research questions. Exercises two through four focus on sampling, measurement, and data collection. The fifth exercise discusses hypotheses and hypothesis testing. The last eight exercises focus on data analysis. These exercises use one of the Monitoring the Future Surveys (i.e., the 2015 survey of high school seniors in the United States). This data set is part of the collection at the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research at the University of Michigan. The data are freely available to the public and you do not have to be a member of the Consortium to use the data. We use SDA (Survey Documentation and Analysis) to analyze the data which is an online statistical package written by the Survey Methods Program at UC Berkeley and is available without cost wherever one has an internet connection. The exercises can be downloaded as Word (.docx) files. Included with these exercises is a more detailed set of notes for the instructor and an introduction to SDA for students. You have permission to use these exercises and to revise them to fit your needs. Each exercise has a set of keywords to make it easier to find an exercise that meets your needs.Wed, 15 Mar 2017 16:32:01 -0700דף עבודה בנושא זכויות (מיפוי וסיכום נושא)
