CHI SQUARE FORMULA
THEORETICAL SQUARED CHI
GL = (Row N0 -1) (column N0 -1)
GL = (2-1) (3-1)
GL = 2
Significance Level: 0, 01
With 2 grades of freedom and a level of Significance of 0, 01 correspond to a THEORETICAL SQUARED CHI de 9,210 established in the statistical table of values of squared chi
ONCE CALCULATED SQUARED CHI (34, 95) higher than the THEORETICAL SQUARED CHI (9,210) the Null Hypothesis Ho is not accepted, this means that the lack of motivation in students is affecting the English learning-process at fifth courses in the “Saraguro” Technical Institute
