...MGMT 4020 Exam3StudyGuide – Fall 2012
As I discussed in class, exam3 will cover chapters 11-14. The exam will consist of 40 multiple choice questions worth 5 points each, and a one-page essay.
You choose one of the essay questions to answer. Please bring your essay with you to the exam.
I am expecting well-written five-paragraph essays with the first and last paragraphs being your introduction and conclusion, respectively. Keep in mind I want a one-page essay. Keep it concise and focused.
The questions are:
1. How does EEO law affect the practice of human resource management in three functional areas (examples: recruitment, training, variable pay, etc.)? Please be specific, especially with regard to the laws themselves.
2. How is diversity changing the practice of human resource management across multiple functional areas (examples: recruitment, training, variable pay, etc.)? Again, be specific.
3. How will a continued economic slowdown and increased unemployment affect the practice of human resource management across multiple functional areas? Again, be specific.
Beyond the learning objectives at the beginning of the chapters and the definitions, study these questions:

Chapter 1
* In statistics the group we wish to study is called the population
* A sample is a subset of the population which is used to gain insight about the population. Samples are used to represent a larger group, the population.
* • Descriptive statistics – the collection, organization, analysis, and presentation of data.
* Inferential statistics – uses descriptive statistics to estimate population parameters; an educated guess about the population based on sample data.
Chapter 2
* • During the experiment a treatment is applied to the experimental group.
* • The exact treatment will depend on the particular experiment.
* • The treatment changes the level of the explanatory variable in the experiment. The effect of the treatment can be measured by comparing the response variable in the control and experimental groups.
* Qualitative: Descriptions and Labels
* Quantitative: counts and measurements
* Discrete: Usually counts of things, restricted set of values
* Continuous: Usually measurements, data can take on any value in an interval
* Nominal measures offer names or labels for certain characteristics
* Ordinal data represents data in an associated order.
* If the data can be ordered and the arithmetic difference is meaningful, the data is interval.
* Ratio data has a meaningful zero point and the ratio of two data points is meaningful.
* Quantitative data...
