# SOALAN 2 (a) (Independent Sample T-Test) Menguji perbezaan min antara dua kumpulan.

Persoalan Kajian: Adakah terdapat perbezaan yang signifikan bagi skor kebimbangan terhadap kursus GB6023 pada awal semester antara pelajar lelaki dan perempuan? Hipotesis Kajian: Ho : Tidak terdapat perbezaan min yang signifikan bagi skor kebimbangan terhadap kursus GB6023 pada awal semester antara pelajar lelaki dan perempuan.

By observing the means it can be seen that male participant produced more errors on the perceived anxiety score in the early semester but this difference may not be significant. To ascertain if this result is significant or due to chance the Independent Samples Test table must be examined. The Std. Deviation shows that the male participant have a wider spread of scores than the female group.

Levenes test has found that the two variances do not differ significantly where F= 0.505, p> 0.05, therefore, as the variances are not significantly different, we can accept the equal variances assumption and use the top line values. The result of two-tailed hypothesis shows that t(156) = 0.122, p>0.05 which we can accept our null hypothesis that there are not significantly mean differences between the male and female participant in the perceived anxiety score in the early semester.

SOALAN 2 (b) (ANOVA 1 WAY) Menguji perbezaan min antara lebih daripada dua kumpulan.

The table above displays the mean perceived anxiety score in the early semester in the four races conditions. It can be seen that Malay student have higher anxiety level in the early semester (mean perceived anxiety = 5.657). As for Indian student have the lowest anxiety level in the early semester where their mean perceived anxiety is 4.393. Chinese students (4.821) and others races student (4.850) have similar concerns in scores where the mean difference in their perceived anxiety scores was 0.029. The Std. Deviation indicates the spread of score in the four races. The largest spread of scores was found in Malay students (1.45658)

From this above table, we see that the Sig. Value is 0.213, which is greater than 0.05. We can therefore assume thatthe variances are approximately equal.

From the Anova table, we can see that F(3, 154) = 2.821; p < 0.05. As p < 0.05, this indicates that there is a significant differences between the four groups. However, it does not state where the significance lies. As this result, we can reject our null hypothesis.

## *. The mean difference is significant at the 0.05 level.

The Multiple Comparisons table shows al the possible pairwise comparisons for our three groups of participants. From this table we can see that the difference between Malay and Indian group is significant, as is the difference between the Chinese and Malay group as the p values are small and less than 0.05.

SOALAN 2 (c) (PEARSON CORRELATION) Menguji hubungan (data parametrik) - kolerasi Persoalan Kajian: Adakah terdapat hubungan antara skor persepsi kendiri pelajar dengan skor sikap pelajar terhadap aktiviti kursus GB6023 pada awal semester?

Hipotesis Kajian: Ho : Tidak terdapat hubungan antara skor persepsi kendiri pelajar dengan skor sikap pelajar terhadap aktiviti kursus GB6023 pada awal semester. ( 1 = 2 ) Ha : Terdapat hubungan antara skor persepsi kendiri pelajar dengan skor sikap pelajar terhadap aktiviti kursus GB6023 pada awal semester. ( 1 2 )

From the graph above we can see that the student self perception score in the early semester have weak correlation, r=.194 with the student attitude score in the early semester towards the GB6023 course activity. This result agree with Cohen (1988) which state that r= .10 to .29 is considered as weak correlation.

The Pearson Correlation test statistic = 0.194. SPSS indicates with * that it is significant at the 0.05 level for a two-tailed prediction. The actual p value is shown to be 0.18 and we can conclude the result as r = 0.194, N = 155, p < 0.05. These result indicate that as the student attitude score in the early semester towards the GB6023 course activity increase, the student self perception score in the early semester also increases, which is a positive correlation. As the r value reported is positive and p < 0.05, we can state that we have a positive correlation between our two variables and our null hypothesis can be rejected.

SOALAN 2 (d) (SPEARMAN CORRELATION) Menguji hubungan (data bukan parametrik) Persoalan Kajian: Adakah terdapat hubungan antara skor kebimbangan pelajar pada awal semester dengan Jangkaan Gred bagi kursus GB6023? Hiptesis Kajian: Ho : Tidak terdapat hubungan antara skor kebimbangan pelajar pada awal semester dengan jangkaan Gred bagi kursus GB6023.

By observing the Spearman correlation output matrix it can be seen that student perceived anxiety score in the early semester is not correlated with the expected grade for the GB6023 course. As the result is rs = 0.124, N = 160, p > 0.05 indicate that there is no effect on the increase of the student perceived anxiety score in the early semester toward the expected grade for the GB6023 course.

As the scatter plot diagram above shows that there a no correlation between the two variable.

The test statistic generally reported is the Mann-Whitney U which is 1625.500 in the above table. The probability value is ascertained by examining the Asymp. Sig (2-tailed). A figure of less than 0.05 is considered to be indicative of significant differences. The result show that U = 1625.50; p=0.012, p < 0.05. Here we can conclude that there is a significant difference between the marital status and the gender of the participant and null hypothesis can be rejected. Our hypothesis is also supported by examining the mean ranks that shows male reports a higher mean ranking of the marital status than female.
