Objective/Overview:
This assignment provides students the opportunity to utilize advanced features of a spreadsheet application and perform analysis to establish a business decision. This project uses different features such as functions, absolute aIDressing, and charts. The student is expected to create a single file that consists of the elements listed below to calculate and illustrate the grades for a fictitious Info 309 class. The information will then be analyzed and presented in a report.
1. Create a series of correlation matrices to examine HR practices and performance.

a. Turnover (full time and part time) and HR practices
b. Financials (earnings as a % of revenue, revenue per car) and HR practices
c. Safety (WC per 10,000 cars , OSHA per 10,000 cars , lot damage per car) and HR practices

Which HR practices are significantly correlated with (a) turnover, (b) financial results, and (c) safety? HINT: PLEASE DON’T PASTE THE CORRELATION TABLES INTO WORD (THEY ARE TOO BIG!). INSTEAD USE THE FOLLOWING TABLE AND NOTE WHICH PRACTICES ARE SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED AT p<.05 WITH THE OUTCOMES.

Full time turnover % Part time turnover % Earnings as % of Revenue Revenue per Car WC claims per 10000 cars OHSA accidents per 10000 cars Lot damage per car

a. Is auction type related to auction size (cars consigned) or financial results (ebitdal % of revenue and gross revenue per car consigned)?

HINT: YOU CAN RUN AN ANOVA OR TTEST FOR MULTIPLE DEPENDENT VARIABLES AT THE SAME TIME BY ENTERING THEM INTO ONE COMMAND. FOR EXAMPLE:

ONEWAY consign earningspercent revpercar BY type
/MISSING ANALYSIS.

b. Is formal training related to auction performance (turnover, financials, and safety)?
c. Is the frequency of performance evaluations related to auction performance (turnover, financials, and safety)?
d. Are selection tests related to part time and full time turnover?

3. Create a bar chart that illustrates one of the significant relationships found in #2.

4. Create a contingency table and conduct a Chi Square test. Is auction legacy status related to auction type?

Please turn in a copy of your syntax file and a word document with your findings summarized. For each test paste the important output into the document and please INTERPRET EACH TEST IN A SENTENCE OR TWO with your conclusion.
