Example 2 (One variable): Choice of PSYA01 Sections L01 L02 L03 L30 Total 25 40 15 36 116 Is this more than a chance difference? 2 2 (O − E) χ = ∑ E O=the observed frequency in a category E=the expected frequency in that category Expected Mean (E) = 29 -if you don’t square it, it will end up being zero -a mean allows us to compare totals  does it have a probability of less than 0.05? -cannot get a negative number We may expect different categories to have the same frequency if chance alone is at work. 2 2 2 2 (2 − 2 )5 4 − 2 )0 91 − 2 5 (3 − 2 )6 9 = + + + 2 9 2 9 2 9 2 9 = .55 + 4.17 + 6.79 +1.69 = 13.17 df = k-1 = 4-1 = 3  the # of conditions that you have Is this significant?
