faculty members' opinions concerning the use of the Internet as well as no statistically
significant differences among the broad discipline areas. The .05 level of significant
difference was used to test the null hypothesis. For question 13, the responses were
considered to be ratio level data. The null hypotheses was stated as there is no statistically
significant differences between the average amount of time spent on the Intemrnet per
week by tenured and tenure-track Master's I university faculty members as well as no
statistically significant differences among faculty members in the broad discipline areas.
The statistical operation for testing the differences between tenure status was a one-tailed
T-test using the .05 level of significant difference. The statistical operation for testing the
differences between discipline areas was a one-way ANOVA using the .05 level of
significant difference. Appendix E contains a complete listing of the responses to each of
the questions on the questionnaire and statistical values and probabilities.
