**You should be familiar with the following tasks using excel in order to be able to **
**complete the statistics assignment. **

**TO GET HELP ON ANY TOPIC, CLICK ON THE HELP BUTTON**
download the practice Excel file from the KIN 306 web site

note: When using excel, you may the wizard buttons in the toolbars rather than using the menu bar pull-down menus (or keyboard short cuts) to do many operations. This manual will list all menu commands and common menu buttons to short-cut some of these menu commands.

insert new column (insert column to left of subject column for labels)
*select column to right of where you want new column*

*Home tab: Cells: insert >> insert sheet column*

place line below data (to visually separate it from summary statistics to be calculated below line)

*select row which you want the line to be BELOW*

Home tab: Font: Use this button to place a line. To place the line shown (the last line you placed, a thin underline in figure at left), click on the left side of the button. To place other types of boarder lines, click on the arrow to get the menu, and select the line desired.

**Alternate: **

**Select the cells you want to format, then right click, then use the boarders **
**icon**

**Enter the word MEAN in column A, immediately below the line**

**Using function wizard to calculate Mean and Standard Deviation**

computing mean and standard deviation using functions Formulas tab: Function Library: Insert Function:

Home tab: Editing:

*category = statistical, then select function (e.g., average)*
*select range*

**Format Number to set # of decimals **

format numbers to set # of decimals Home tab: Number:

**Alternate: **

**Select the cells you want to format, then right click, then use **

Home tab: Clipboard: copy functions & formatting to paste to other similar, parallel columns

**Writing a formula**

BMI = BODY MASS INDEX

= WEIGHT (kg) / height^{2} (m)
e.g., 5 ft 4 inch & 145 lbs

= 64 inches, 145 lbs

= 1.62 meters, 66 kg

= 66 / 1.6256^{2}
BMI = 25

**Note that in Excel, the multiplication sign * must be included **
**when needed, Excel does not multiply round brackets**

**Skills to demonstrate:**

1. How to split the screen vertically and horizontally to view all of your data.

2. How to insert a new worksheet.

**3. How to show a number in scientific notation in **
**excel**

**Select the cells you want to format, right click, choose “format cells”, **
**choose “Number” tab, choose “scientific” category, Set decimals, OK.**

**Plot a scattergram **

do a scattergram (a fancy one with 2 sets of data on a single graph)

*

go to the DATA page

TRICK: To view the top & bottom of your page that is too big to fit on a screen, use a HORIZONTAL SPLIT SCREEN. Similarly, to view extreme right and left sides beyond the view of the screen, use a VERTICAL SPLIT SCREEN.

TRICK: To select continuous data across a split screen- select the first cell in one window, then shift+click of the last cell in the second window. The full range between these two selections will be selected.

Use options in box to set reasonable (& not conflicting) min, max, step sizes, # decimals displayed etc.

**Skills to demonstrate:**

1. How and Why to set the axis range 2. How to set the axis range

a. left click on the axes to select it, this will show as a selection box around the axes and its labels.

**b. Right click exactly on a number along the axis.**

c. Select: format axis

d. use axis options, min and max to set the axis range 3. How to change a graph once you make it:

a. Change axis label: click on it to select it and edit it

b. Position of legend: Select it, then drag it to move it, and change its shape.

**Copying excel material to word **

**For writing a report: You will produce a professional report by copying the graph and **
pasting it into a Word document to create on Word file with text and figures. To copy the
**graph to word: Select the graph. Ensure you select the whole graph, i.e., click near the **
edge of the graph frame and see the outer most edge of the graph indicated by the

selection box. Do not select only the axis portion of the graph by clicking at the center of the graph. Copy the graph. Then open your word report document, and place the cursor where you want the graph to go, and paste the graph in.

**To copy the output table to word: Select the range of cells you wish to copy. Copy **
the range. Then open your word report document, and place the cursor where you want
the table to go, and paste the data table in.

**Backup your work**

**Ensure you have more than one copy of any work you care **
**about!!! **

**The following are advanced techniques required of KIN 506 students, and **
**potentially useful for KIN 306 students when writing lab reports.**

**Advanced bar graph techniques**

To plot mean and standard deviation values for groups to report results.

We will use the following data to produce the following sample graph:

males 45 50

females 30 40

Standard Deviation of Aerobic Capacity (ml/kg/min)

Pre-training Post-training

RIGHT Click on the axis line or tick label to open operation box

Use options in box to set reasonable (& not conflicting) min, max, step sizes, # decimals displayed etc.

**Now add the error bars to first data set:**

*Chart tools: Layout: analysis: error bars: more error bar options:*

Select ONE set of data. (e.g., Pre training) OK

Select "Both" & "Custom"

“specfy value”

Place cursor in "+" range box

Drag and select the column of male & female pretraining standard deviation values

Place cursor in "-" range box

Drag and select the column of male & female pretraining standard deviation values

OK

**Now add the error bars to second data set - by repeating the above procedure **
for the second data set

**Note:**

* You can insert text (such as a symbol to mark significance) by using: Insert: text: *

*text box.*

You can change the words used in the graph legend by changing the text of the corresponding cell in the excel spreadsheet.

Changes in the data in the excel spreadsheet will automatically be replotted.

The same data can be plotted in an alternative organization, as shown below, by:

*Chart tools: design: data: Switch row/column*

**Non-parametric test – Chi Squared**
Chi Squared analysis

See sample data in Excel lesson data worksheet.

Organize table of Actual Observations

Calculate table of Expected Observations (using absolute and relative addresses) Expected responses = (column total x row total) / N

Use function: CHITEST (use function help if needed) Function returns probability

Note that you can copy the first Chi Squared test you build, and use it as a template for additional questions.
