An investigator in child development research is studying whether parenting styles have an effect on second grade students’ behavior at school. She interviews 23 volunteer families from the same class and separates them into three groups of parenting styles: authoritarian (n = 8); authoritative (n = 8); and permissive (n = 7). Their teacher fills out a behavior inventory for each of the 23 children, and the investigator collects and scores them. The scores are contained in the table below. The scores can range from 0-20, and a higher score indicates more behavior problems. Is there a significant difference between the groups? Choose the correct test to analyze this question, set up the SPSS file, and run the analysis. Follow the directions under the table below. (16 pts)
