Phase Two: Flagler College Students and Work of Fall 2018.

Introduction: (Rich , Juliann)

Phase One of the Statistics final consisted of  the work habits and opinions of students at Flagler College during the fall semester 2018. In Phase Two of the Statistics final, the specific data used in Phase One will be divided into two smaller samples in order to better understand the uniqueness of the data. The two specific samples that are going to be compared in Phase Two are those who believe that working while attending college compromises school performance and those who do not believe that working while attending college compromises school performance. In this phase, the phrase that will represent those who believe ‘yes’ will be represented as “Compromised Students” and those who believe ‘no’ will be represented as “Uncompromised Students.” There are 83 “Uncompromised Students” and 67 “Compromised Students” sampled from this particular data.

Students were asked various question that pertained to student life on and off campus. This graph in particular showed the results of the question “Do you think that a students school performance is compromised if they work while attending school?’’ First a comparison will be made of how many hours a student would work while attending school. Then a second comparison will their work status while attending school. The third comparison will be if the student feels that working while attending school effects their school performance.

Comparison #1: Hours Worked in Typical Week of Students (Rich)

The following graph and data shows the hours worked and views of students stating that working during school compromises their school work and working during school does not compromise their school work. The data presents that more students feel that work does not compromise their school performance. The Median for for students that responded no was six points higher than the students who responded yes. We noticed that the upper quartile for both responses were the same at 20 each however the lower quartile for students responding no was at six different from students responding yes being at 0. The minimum and maximum for both groups were exactly the same min being zero hours and max being 40 hours. The IQR of both results had similar outcome to the median of both results except this time the students who responded yes was six points higher at a result of 20 rather than students who responded no being at a result of 14. The overall conclusion of the data is that the hours worked or not worked by students who responded no and yes were very similar, but out of all the students asked a greater amount responded saying that no they did not feel that the hours they worked while attending school compromised their school performance.

Comparison #2: Work Status (Vianey)

The following graphs shows that a 62.8% of the student that answered no felt that work will compromised their school performance. But 62.6% of the students that and yes say that work does not compromised their school performance. The other 37.2% that answered no felt that work will not compromised their school performance. 37.4% of the students answered yes felt that work will compromised their school performance.

Comparison #3: School vs. Work Priority (Juliann)

The following contingency table compares the responses of those who either prioritize school before work or work before school between Compromised and Uncompromised Students. Overall, a staggering 146 out of 150 students surveyed prioritized School Before Work while only 4 students put Work Before School. That being said 97.3% (146/150) of all the students surveyed the Fall Semester of 2018 put their academics before their jobs. Therefore, the majority of the students surveyed prioritized School Before Work.

Of the 83 Uncompromised Students surveyed, 1 student put Work Before School and of the 67 Compromised Students surveyed, only 3 students put Work Before School. That means 1.2% (1/83) of Uncompromised Students and 4.4% of Compromised Students actually felt that they should put Work before School. This was a surprising conclusion since it would be expected of a student who believed school performance was not compromised by work to then put work as a priority to school. The results, however, conclude the exact opposite, that school is more of a priority than work. It is therefore known that the majority of both Compromised and Uncompromised Students prioritize School Before Work.

Conclusion (Juliann)

In this comparison of the opinions between the students surveyed who felt that school performance was compromised by work (Compromised Students) and those who felt that school performance was not compromised by work (Uncompromised Students), it was found that there was no huge difference between whether they prioritize school before work or work before school (Comparison 3). However, it was in Comparisons 1 & 2 (Hours Worked and Work Status of Students) that major differences were found. In Comparison 1, the median was 6 points higher, meaning more people averagely who said no to school performance worked more hours. What we would say is the most intriguing difference in the data resulted from Comparison 2 in which the majority of those who did not work were Compromised Students and the majority of those who did work were Uncompromised Students. The bizarre symmetry of the graph does not belittle the information it contains; that those who did not work felt that school performance would be compromised by work, and those who were working did not feel their school performance was compromised by work.

Excellent report--very well done. Very good conclusions on the "unexpected" data--this was thoroughly worked
