    stat treatment for yes no questions




    I'm an education student and doing a thesis on vocabulary competence of select students. I only know basic statistics. What statistical treatment is befitting for yes no questions?

    sample question: Does your school strictly implement a 'Speak English' policy? Yes - 5. No - 7. How do you treat that kind of data?

    Just completed my data.

    My null hypothesis is this: There are no significant differences in the vocabulary competence of students in terms of: school factors, home factors and personal factors.

    I have 2-4 yes no questions for each factors. What do I do with the data to prove my hypothesis? What type of stat analysis to use?

    For example I have these set of data.

    Home factors:

    1. Do you use English in conversing at home?

    Yes - 7
    No - 6

    2. Do your family members use English more often than your native language?

    Yes - 0
    No - 13

    3. Do appreciate it when your family talks to you in English?
    Yes - 12
    No - 1

    4. Do your parents motivate you to speak English at home?

    Yes - 11
    No - 2

    School Factors:

    1. Do teachers use English in discussing school subjects?
    Y - 10
    N - 3

    2. Does your school strictly implement a 'Speak English' policy?
    Y- 5
    N - 8

    3. Do you speak English in the school?
    Y - 11
    N - 2

    4. Do your teachers motivate you to speak English?
    Y - 13
    N - 0

    Then I have the test scores of their vocabulary exam. 30-items. 13 students. How do I treat the data to prove my hypothesis? Please help. Thanks.
