Round 1 and Round 2 data.

Comment: The first two frequency tables show data as it exists in the working PASW file. The R1 table shows self-esteem values that have been recoded into the same variable to make them correlate psychometrically - a process donefor me by Greg some time in the past. The questions in the SE scale that were recoded are 4, 6, 8 & 10.

The second frequency table shows data that has not been recoded into the same variable. Selected R2 values need to be recoded into the same variable in the same way at the R1 values were.  The questions (i.e. the data associated with the selected questions) in the SE scale that need to be recoded are 4, 6, 8 & 10.

Variables:

ESTEEM1

ESTEXM1


ESTEEM2

ESTEXM2


through to ...

ESTEEM10

ESTEXM10

and totalled in the variables:
R1SelfEsteem
R2SelfEsteem *
 * But the totals in the R2SelfEsteem variable are incorrect because four questions had not been recoded prior to letting PASW do the totals. Recoding needs to be done first.

This table shows values before recoding of questions 4, 6, 8 & 10. The totals are less than they should be and the Mean is about 6 points lower that R1.

This table now shows totals after the four questions (4, 6, 8 & 10) were recoded into the same variable - i.e. their values were reversed.
