NEED MATH FIXED AND WRITE UP COMPLETEDFinal Take-Home Exam Data:The data come from an experiment on groups of four people working together as a team (see Pilny et al., 2014 if you want more details). They had to work together to neutralize a set of insurgents in a virtual world. For this final exam, I want you to exam the concept of team mindfulness, which can be defined as “the ability for individuals in a team to be aware, pay attention to the present, and interact with one another in a non-judgmental way” (definition I made up, 2017). Just a head’s up: the items have already been reverse coded, so high values represent how much they disagree with the statements (this make more sense when you read the items). Reliability:Using exploratory factor analysis (make sure to pick the appropriate type, see Park, Dailey, & Lemus, 2012), create a reliable scale. Include and remove items according to the criteria discussed regarding adequacy (slide 18), factor extraction (slide 22), and minimal factor loadings (slide 25). Justify the decisions you have made regarding which items you will keep and how many factors to retain (you should be running and re-running the EFA several times here). Once this process is complete, interpret the factors (give them names and explain why you named them such) and run reliability tests on them (i.e., Cronbach’s alpha). Reproduce Table 4 in the EFA & CFA handout I uploaded on Canvas. Make sure to save your factor scores in your SPSS dataset, you will need them for the next part. Validity:The first step gives us a sense that we might have a reliable scale of team mindfulness.However, we need some evidence of validity, or in other words, does it measure what it is supposed to measure? Validate the scale by establishing correlational validity (i.e., the measure correlates with something that we would theoretically expect it to). If this is a useful measure, then it should correlate with team identification(i.e., how much somebody identifies with their team). Using a multilevel model, with random intercepts on Team ID, examine the impact of your team mindfulness factorson team identification. Control for fixed effects on Role (categorical variable) and adversarial perceptions(continuous variable). Reproduce Table 2 on the Growth Curve Model document I uploaded (ignore the Greek symbols, I was trying to be cute—this isn’t a growth curve model, but all growth curve models are special instances of multilevel models with an emphasis on time as a fixed and random factor). Write up:Include your SPSS output in an appendix. What I am more interested in is the write up. There should be three tables: (1) Descriptive statistics and correlations (see Table 1 in Regression example I uploaded), (2) EFA and reliability analysis, and (3) Multilevel model results. Write this like it is a journal submission, meaning that you have to be concise on exactly why you made the decisions you did (use footnotes if needed). Finally, include a discussion section that sums up and interprets what you did. Answer if you have confidence or a lack of confidence in the team mindfulnessmeasure you created. As always, use proper APA. Follow directions but with these notes: It looks like for your factor one, you need to report the average mean and sd rather than overall mean and sd. the correlations should be all the factors, not the items.
