CHI SQUARE AMONG YEARS
RESEARCH QUESTION • Is there any relationship between Emotional Intelligence(EI) level with the year of studies for year 1, year 2 and year 3 of biomedical students?
HYPOTHESIS • Null hypothesis : n1 = n2 = n3 The Emotional Intelligence (EI) for Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 is the same. • Alternative hypothesis : n1 ≠ n2 ≠ n3 The Emotional Intelligence (EI) for Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 is different.
CHI-SQUARE TEST • Case processing summary The case summary processing indicates that the data from 133 cases were included in these analyses.
From the table, the value of count of year 1 students that have moderate Emotional Intelligence is 17 and the percentage within year is 65.4%. For year 2, the count is 39 with 79.6% for the percentage withing year and 86.2% for year 3 with the count of 50 students. • From the table also, the value of count for year 1 students that have high Emotional Intelligence is 9 and the percentage within year is 34.6%. While, the value of count of year 2 students is 10 with 20.4% and 11.8% for the year 3 students with the value of count of 8.
CHI SQUARE TEST • The Pearson Chi-square is not statistically significant. This is because the Asymp. Sig. is 0.090 which is more than the α = 0.05. • We can conclude that the year of the studies forbiomedical science students is not related to the Emotional Intelligence level. • We do not reject null hypothesis.
CONCLUSION • A Pearson’s chi-square test of contingencies (with α = 0.05) was used to evaluate whether year of studies of the biomedical students is related to the Emotional Intelligence level or not. • The chi-square test was not statistically significant, p = 0.090. Year of studies of the students is not related to the Emotional Intelligence level.
