Abstract/Description

The data derived for this project comes from S. Quine’s doctoral dissertation on the achievement orientation of aboriginal and white adolescents in Australia in 1975. This sociological study observed 154 participants and used number of days absent from school during the school year as the response variable. The explanatory variables were race (aboriginal or non-aboriginal), sex (female or male), school type (primary, first, second, or third form), and how good of a learner the child is (average or slow). This project will be based on analysis of variance (ANOVA) to analyze the data and determine the relationships between days absent from school and the explanatory variables.
