Chi-Square of Levels of involvement by hours worked by the parent

*Note. *p<.05*, p<.01**, p<.001***

The dependent variable for the Chi-Square is the level of involvement of parents in the leaf painting activity. Respondents were given a scale of 0-10 to answer from. For the Chi-Square, the responses have been recoded to “Low Involvement” (0-5) and “High Involvement” (6-10). The independent variable for the Chi-Square is on the hours worked by the parent in a week. The respondents were given the answer choices of 0-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, and 51+. This variable was recoded into “0-30 hours” and “31+ Hours.”

After running the Chi-Square, the Chi statistic is 8.1*and is significant. This means that there is a relationship between levels of involvement and the hours worked by the parents.
